Artist Home Premiere of ‘Get Me’, august, 2018

“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


Northwest Music scene, october, 2018

“‘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.”

seattle music news, january, 2019

“Lyle describes themselves as an art-rock band, which could mean any number of things. What started as a duet between local favorites Lana McMullen and Arthur James transformed into a septet of musicians with diverse backgrounds. Maybe art-rock is a convergence of different genres. Lyle has no lead singer, but they do have classically trained cello, violin, and piano players, and a brand of music that ebbs and flows between the foundation of James’ rock influence and McMullen’s folk sensibilities.” - Phillip Johnson, Seattle Music News


Rain city Collective, April, 2019

“James and McMullen blend together beautifully over the wide, symphonic swells of the song, and the breadth of talent of the entire band is on display, with poignant contributions from Leah Tousignant on keys and Natalie Gray on violin. This is another spectacular track from the new band, and adds to their previous releases "Get Me" and "Believe in the Dark". If you're looking for wonderful songs, Lyle is now 3 for 3.” - Elijah Dhavvan, Rain City Collective
