Toronto indie pop songstress LYON has returned with a brand new single titled “Cut Me Loose”. Accompanied by a video, which was filmed during the heart of the unforgiving Canadian winter, the song speaks of letting go, striking out on ones own and finally hitting your stride.

Catch LYON @ Mod Club for the Indie88 presentation of Brave Shores, For Esme, MIDDAY Swim and Diamond Bones on May 8 during this year’s Canadian Music Week.

Drawing comparisons to FKA Twigs, Kate Bush, and even Prince, LA based artist Quigley is completely enchanting –– a curious case and a total musical gem.
