It is January 5th 2014 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The first duo to take the 'Song of the Week' spot of 2014 reside in beautiful Gold Coast, Australia, a coastal city on the east side of the country.
Brothers Adam and Nathan Lyons began their indie folk project, known as Lyon Apprentice, in early 2013.
"Growing up in north Queensland, before relocating to the Gold Coast, they both shared an interest for music from a young age. This led them to writing their first song together for Nathan's school graduation, though it wasn't until years later that they would continue what they started."
Together, Adam and Nathan create some of the best indie folk tunes I have heard from independent musicians. And, of course, their catchy style and pure talent does not go unnoticed throughout Gold Coast, Australia, as well as the rest of the world.
"The duo traveled to Cairns, Australia in February of 2013, teaming up with Mark Myers (The Middle East, Emma Louise) to co-produce their debut EP which was mixed by Catherine Marks (Foals, Interpol) at Assault & Battery Studios in London, England."
Although Lyon Apprentice has yet to release any official EPs, they have several songs available throughout the internet that will surely impress anyone who takes a listen. And, that is why their latest single, I Will Find You, is taking the first 'Song of the Week' spot of 2014.
One incredible feature about this young duo is that they are able to create such perfect songs. Combined with relatable and perfectly written lyrics, mixed with their addicting indie folk sound, and the two never disappoint.
So, expect Lyon Apprentice's official first EP, which will be titled Be Honest, Be Wild, Be Free, to be released sometime in early 2014. With what these two have always shown us, it is pretty clear this EP will be something absolutely perfect, making them earn this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
Throughout 2013 Adam and Nathan released official music videos for both I Will Find You, as well as their first single, Beautiful Thought, to their official Youtube Channel. So, definitely check out the video for this week's 'Song of the Week', I Will Find You, found here:
