Dan Lyth and the Euphrates


Dan Lyth is a musician and sound designer from Fife in Scotland. Benthic Lines is an indie pop album leaning in the direction of folktronica. Recorded outdoors over five years, the album features eight tracks that don’t so much utilise found sounds (they’re not really found, they’re just there and they’re not generally prevalent) but instead takes them on as an accompaniment and mood baromoter for each of the tracks.

Dan Lyth is a musician and sound designer from Fife in Scotland. Benthic Lines is an indie pop album leaning in the direction of folktronica. Recorded outdoors over five years, the album features eight tracks that don’t so much utilise found sounds (they’re not really found, they’re just there and they’re not generally prevalent) but instead takes them on as an accompaniment and mood baromoter for each of the tracks. In an age when it seems anyone can produce an album in their bedroom, Benthic Lines attempts to re-explore the relationship between music and the environment in which it is created. What happens to a recording when you have no control over the surroundings? What anomalies and accidents may occur? And would it be possible to weave together the unpredictable sounds of these environments with more traditional performances to create a cohesive whole? Comparisons will abound with Radiohead, Thom Yorke and Martin Grech, but this is no bad thing. We Were Bones And We Were Meat for example has the cold folktronic feel of Yorke‘s The Eraser as does How It Happened, but both songs and the album as a whole focus on melody and vocals despite (or because of?) some repetitive and hypnotic structures worthy of Dawn Of Midi and Philip Glass. Ultimately the album is about relationships and distance (Benthic Lines are the deep sea communication cables that connect the world) and the human condition in a contemporary context (There was fire, there was dragon / There was burning, we were running / We were hunted, we were hiding / We were searching, never finding / There was monster, there was teeth and We were bones and we were meat / All confusion, all illusion / All imagined except dragon). A truly glorious album, you’ll be hard pressed to let this one go once you’ve played it a few times. Benthic Lines is available on Spotify. Read more on Last.fm.
