D.K. Lyons delivers pure, unadulterated pop with latest offering 'Zoe Does Her Hair'
Hailing from a bustling Manhattan, Massachusetts-born singer, songwriter and producer D.K. Lyons is well-versed in the art of juggling unique talents. Armed with a new take on infectious pop productions and his signature 80’s infused sound, Lyons now returns to the spotlight with a new playful yet reflective offering ‘Zoe Does Her Hair’.
Following his recent release of emo synth-pop track ‘The Sadness’, it’s clear Lyons recognises his unique talent for communicating relatable experiences, drawing inspiration from the likes of Charlie Puth and The 1975 and praising them for their catching production cuts and no nonsense lyricism respectively.
From recording cassette demos at age 10 and honing his craft with open mic nights to triumphantly entering a recording studio for the first time in 2018, D.K. Lyons has developed his craft to become a truly conceptual artist, envisioning layered synths and guitar riffs working alongside each other to create a pure, unadulterated pop experience.
His latest offering is decorated with the vocal of long-time friend Emma Rae, and as Lyons recognises the sonic complexity and depth that collaboration brings, his sound continues to evolve. Harnessing true encounters and emotions is second nature to the songsmith, as he invites listeners into his headspace while contemplating love and all that encompasses it.
Seeking lightbulb moments in times of reflective solitude, Lyons stands on the precipice of falling in love in his latest delivery. As he acknowledges and embraces the concept of loosening the reins and accepting free fall, the artist confidently steps into his full potential with fun lyrical elements and a fresh perspective on pop music.
With a natural propensity for floating between mellow and upbeat productions, this versatility is very much reflective of his personality and naturally, the ever-shifting emotions of his listeners. Entering a new era, with a sharp focus on creating pop-rock excellence, D.K. 's rallying cry to his fans is simple: laugh, dance, cry and repeat.
Speaking of the track, D.K. Lyons said:
"Zoe Does Her Hair is an upbeat, infectious pop song about the precipice of falling in love. An encouragement to focus less on the weight we've carried to that point and more on living in the moment and letting go of the reins to enjoy the process of falling in love. To me, it's a bit of a pep talk to spend more time going with the flow and not overthinking things. It also is the purest pop song I've put out to date, which is really exciting for me. It represents a fresh, different sound that I can't wait to share with people.’
