You might recognize Lyris Faron’s distinctive voice from T-Rextasy, which makes sense because she’s one-fifth of the New York-based band that released their debut album last year. But she also has her own project called Lyrie And The Duckies, and she’s been releasing songs under that name since last fall, and other solo songs long before that. Her latest, “Campus Lust Song,” is a Valentine’s Day ode to momentary infatuation, and the digital single comes with a postcard that you can mail out that that special someone, or just keep for yourself. “Campus Lust Song” demonstrates Faron’s sardonic and witty style of writing paired with a wholesome ’50s swing that plays in stark contrast to the song’s coyly smutty lyrics: “You are my dreams materialized/ You are a love song in the flesh/ You got your parts and I got mine/ So come on, darling, I know you can make me feel fine.” Listen to it below.
Lyrie And The Duckies also recently released a short but sweet collection of songs called Did You Know Babies…? — you can listen to that here:
“Campus Lust Song” is being released as a digital single on Valentine’s Day via Birdtapes.
