Predominantly known for his (rather bloody good) covers of contemporary British acts such as Marina and the Diamonds, Ellie Goulding, and Delphic, David's Lyre has shown that he's even more adept when it comes to composing original tracks. Heartbeat starts off stripped down with just David's unique and distinctly British vocal over what could be fairly presumed to be a lyre, but is in fact a ukulele, before BOOM.....he brings in the beat. Strangely enough this big tropical beat and uke combo works really well, sounding somewhat like the lovechild of a bizarre orgy between fellow Londonders Noah and the Whale and Crystal Fighters....carefully mediated by Midlake.
