Thanks once again to our friends across the pond at Blue in Green Radio for a glowing review - this time concerning Kyle Lacy’s new single! Check out a little of what they had to say below and then follow the link for the full article!
Propelling his adoration for time-honoured music even further, Kyle Lacy now finds an apt home under the roof of Brooklyn's Dala Records.
Dala – and its founder Billy Aukstik – have developed a real art form of sorts for scouting diverse and versatile talent that are always a perfect fit for the label's authentic, soulful aesthetic and captured through their distinct analog sound. Whether it be the "folky soul" of Georgia Lee Johnson, the Northern Soul of Camellia Hartman and Mel & Kim, or this awesome brand new single.
'Hangin On' serves as a magnificent two-man performance between Lacy and Aukstik with Lacy tackling drums, bass, guitars, piano and songwriting duties, leaving Aukstik to typically excel on organ and trumpet. It's a thrilling pairing with equally thrilling results – the combination of Lacy's poignant opening lyrics, lamenting over a portion of his life that has since passed, sitting over Aukstik's symbolic church-esque organ is magic.
Lacy later sings with touching honesty “But I keep hanging on, hanging on, I think I’m losing the fight”. Unfortunately, these can also be gut-wrenching words that resonate with many as well which is what ultimately makes music - and this song - so special.
