Lyves has revealed her brand new song, ‘Cover Me’ . The release comes soon after recent new single ‘Holding Back’, which was released last month.
Earlier this year, following the release of her debut EP ‘Like Water’, Lyves joined Coldplay on 15 dates of their ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ tour – playing to packed stadiums across Europe. The time on the road has allowed her to hone in on her musical style and begin to explore new sounds.
‘Cover Me’, which is produced by Lyves along with Will Night, is an evolution of her unique, spacious R&B sound. Where ‘Holding Back’ led with haunting pianos and luscious strings; ‘Cover Me’ is a further exploration into her electronic core. Slowly building synth chords and stabs are enhanced with percussive elements echoing trip-hop, yet remaining beautifully subtle.
“I wrote ‘Cover Me’ around 3 years ago, but it ended up as a lost, unfinished demo until I came across it again by accident this year while writing in Devon. Hearing it after so long re-ignited how I first felt writing it and led me to finish the song. I feel the song speaks about the tug and pull in relationships – that internal conflict that can arise between wanting stability and security vs independence.”
