E.G. Palermo – “Lyra, Dear”

“Lyra, Dear” is a graceful, psychedelic pop effort from Canadian singer/songwriter E.G. Palermo. The project launched in 2017, when Palermo took a brief hiatus from rock act Code Pie (serving as lead vocalist). Palermo describes “Lyra, Dear” as “baroque country,” a quality labeling considering its clear chamber-pop and baroque-inspired inclinations. For me, the track aesthetically reminds of Beach Boys circa The Beach Boys Love You (1977) — spacey and hypnotic, with lush vocals and accompanying piano. Breezy string backing and graceful piano accompaniment add nicely throughout. “Lyra, Dear” is an enjoyable trip from E.G. Palermo.

“Lyra, Dear” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2021’ Spotify playlist.
