Lyle is a Seattle-based art-rock band. It began as a collaboration between singer-songwriters Lana McMullen and Arthur James in the spring of 2017. The two wanted to build a project without a frontperson—a collaborative where everyone involved contributes equally, artistically. They added five additional musicians from a myriad of musical backgrounds including metal, jazz-fusion, soul/r&b, and classical.
In the spring of 2018, Lyle ventured into Seattle's historic London Bridge Studio and recorded a five-song EP with producer Eric Lilavois (Atlas Genius, My Chemical Romance, Saint Motel) and engineer Julian Anderson. Their single, "Get Me," was mastered by Ed Brooks (Pearl Jam, Death Cab for Cutie, R.E.M.) and was released on October 12, 2018, with the full EP to follow in 2019.
“Lyle is a seven-piece art-rock band with a sound that’s difficult to describe and a giant, collective open heart. Their new single, “Get Me,” which we’re proud to premiere here, is a confident track blending the introspection of 10,000 Maniacs with the epic, anthemic quality of early Arcade Fire. And it has a way of sticking in your soul.” - Jake Uitti, Artist Home
“‘Get Me’ highlights the unmistakable vocals of Lana McMullen, masterfully served over the top of a delicately placed string arrangement, creating a soul-stirring vibe.”
