Graffiti Vibe Introduces 'Lyena'
The band formed in late 2018 after being introduced to each other at mutual friend's show. Having quickly realised they all had a passion for fast, energetic music - they decided to hire a practice room the next day.
Lyena channel the views of angsty millennials, and tell stories about everything from social media and gender divide to homelessness, self-entitlement and loss. Their strong messages are presented in a playful, tongue in cheek manner, and see each song as part of a wider storytelling universe that they create, with characters and narratives intertwining.
Headlines is Lyena’s second single and reflects modern society’s relationship with clickbait news and meaningless headlines, all told from the perspective of a narrator who feels disconnected from the world around him. Lyena use sarcasm and dry wit blended with powerful hooks in an angst-driven, tongue-in-cheek track oozing with slick riffs and raw energy.
Having made a name for themselves on London's underground scene, Lyena have played shows throughout the UK and Ireland. The band have a string of dates coming up, including a show at the basement in Chelmsford on the 11th of April, the Unicorn in Camden on the 15th of April, and Paper Dress Vintage in London on the 12th of June.
