"Pylons was kind of a self deprecating song where I was questioning who I was and what road I was on, being dubious about you living by your own standards,” says Leeds-based singer/songwriter Joseph Lyons.
Under the Eaves name, Lyons signed to legendary indie Heavenly following good word-of-mouth and some stunning demos. "The song is less about some direct sentiment,” Lyons adds, "and more like a culmination of experiences during a couple of weeks that were pretty tumultuous.”
For our session Lyons brought extra vocals from tour-mate Steph. "The session was the first I'd done with Steph, he explains. "It was at this sweet little house by a railroad track and the team were real nice [and it] felt homely. It was a beautiful day and the blinds made this sideways caged silhouette on the wall."
"Certainly looks like a moody one but it was a lot of fun for sure."
