 BIO

« Did I listen to the music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to the music? » tormented himself Rob Fleming, the main character in Nick Hornbys’ « High Fidelity » novel.
That question could also be applied to the Bantam Lyons lads. Because the music of these four Brittany native youngsters now exiled to Nantes gives you a knot in the stomach way easier than a whole afternoon spent watching the drizzling rain of Brest through a window. And because it has this watermark that condenses the most melancolic music recorded since the 80’s.
You’d hardly need to scrape the surface to emerge reminiscences of Noise/Rock in a Mogwai style (the crystal clear guitars of « Wednesdays »), of Cold-Wave as played by Joy Division (the tachycardic bassline of « Mamad »), of Mercury Rev’s dream-pop (the moving « Glow »), the contained rage of Post-Punk (the « Something Familiar » anthem) or Talk Talks’ sense of drama (« Yellow Fingers »).
Carried by a singular voice that stirs your guts, Bantam Lyons music calls the discarded youth we all have inside us. Because it’s sometimes a good thing to feel sad. And it’s always good to listen to pop music, no matter what.
