Young Lyre 2015 Studio Recording
Project 2014-05-24 12:22:48 +1200
We are Young Lyre, a five piece indie/alternative band based in Auckland. We’ve been making tunes together for about four years now with our current lineup. We’ve released a couple of singles, opened for a few international acts, and released a 5 track EP, but we’ve pretty much locked ourselves in the practice room for the last year to work on some new material. Now we’ve got a bunch of quality songs (we think so anyway) ready to record…but we need some help to afford to do this thing! We’ve been selling instruments on TradeMe, digging deep into overdrafts, and eating cheap food, but we’ve realised that we’re still going to need a bit of extra support to make this thing happen. This is where you come in…
Our fans have been amazingly patient and supportive during this quiet season of ours, so first of all, thanks! We’ve put together a range of rewards you can get for pledging money to support this upcoming EP. We’ve already made some progress on our first single, We Go Faster, which will be due for release sometime soon. Some of the rewards will be given once the single or EP is finished, so please get your mates to get on board too and we can make it happen sooner!
A big thanks from all of us and we look forward to sharing our new music with you!
