Oasis - "Lyla"

This is Oasis' upcoming single off of their upcoming album "Don't Believe The Truth"

It's not going to be officially on the radio till next week but the track was played on some radio somewhere and it was recorded by somebody and then somehow I heard it. The sound quality isn't perfect due to the way it was recorded - but not too bad.

The song the starts off with an insistant beat and rhythem and a bit of melody taken from The Rolling Stones "Street Fighting Man" ...

The Chorus comes in with "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeey LY-LA" this bit is very catchy and has been stuck in my head since I first heard the song.

The song sonically is a bit of a change for Oasis the song almost has a slight country rock feel to the chorus - reminds me of The Who as well. The drums are louder in the mix than usual. Very insistant. I believe the drums are by Ringo Starr's son Zac Starkey as Oasis' previous drummer Alan White is no longer with the band. The overall production is quite good and seems to be a bit of a change from the wall of sound. More individual parts are heard in this production. A welcome change.

The song has an extended outro of hand claps and piano bitties along with some guitar riffs reminiscent of an Oasis B-Side from the Be Here Now days called "My Sister Lover"

While the "street fighting man" thing may be a bit off putting at first - it feels just right after a few times listening to the song. And the chorus is absolutely killer and will probably be staying with you for awhile after you hear the song. A happy up beat song but without being cheesey or cloying. Most importantly this song feels fresh. Like something new for Oasis and definitly like some fresh air as far as modern rock goes which could use a bit of a pick me up.

Makes me curious to see what else is on the new album.
