Out of Birmingham, lycio are a contemporary 3-piece bringing a uniquely authentic take on electronic/hybrid music - combining distinctive vocals, real & electronic drums alongside pad/synth textures.

Despite their interest in sound design, lycio ultimately prioritise the song - great songwriting, vocals & melody.

Everything is played 100% live; no backing tracks, no stock loops. Hybrid music with that essential human feel.
