The Lyonz Drops ‘The Jump To Jupiter Video’ + EP

Salvo (Anthony Salvo) and Norrin (Terrell McLeod Richardson)  – aka Montreal group THE LYONZ –  have dropped their highly anticipated new EP ‘2nd U, Pt.1’, last Friday (17th January), which showcases their trademark of minimal jazz-tinged unconventional hip hop.

Alongside the EP,  the duo also unveiled a stunning video for lead single, ‘The Jump to Jupiter’, which delves into the life of a troubled man, obsessed with one day going to see the planet. Jupiter is essentially a metaphor for a destination of bliss and safety —jumping to Jupiter means escaping his troubled life of drug abuse.

Song of the Day: Fall – The Lyonz

Formed in 2013, THE LYONZ are a Canadian music group and art collective largely focused upon hip-hop and electronic work. Consisting of Salvo (Anthony Salvo) and Norrin (Terrell McLeod Richardson), their debut album, ‘Peace Beyond The Pines’, released in 2015, led them to perform various shows in Canada and landing a spot in Montreal’s 2016 international Jazz Festival. Their musical style landscapes atmospheric dynamics, conveyed through heavily processed synthetic layers, shifting drum patterns, and the blending in of treated instruments frequently met with melancholic verses. Their unique sound is often unconventional, with arrangements established by high production values, involving extensive digital editing and mixing.

Although primarily a musical group, THe LYONZ also work with other forms of media. They have gained notoriety through their visual artwork including personalized event flyers, short videos, and merchandise. A notable example is their string of weekly flyers promoting their DJ residencies at Montréal venues.

So if you haven’t of these guys, let me introduce you to their mesmerizing latest single, ‘Fall’. Check out the video below…
