Local Action is proud to present the debut album by Erskine Lynas, Lease of Youth. Although Erskine - aka Thomas Emslie - is a new name, he’s a long-time ally of Local Action who was known for his acclaimed electronic work as T_A_M. Written and recorded in Aberdeen throughout Summer ’16, Lease of Youth is heavily inspired by the naive melodic synth-pop of bands like Tears for Fears, The Blue Nile, OMD and Magnetic Fields, smeared against the grey skies and coastline of Emslie’s hometown with an approach to after-effects and sampling that betrays his relationship with modern electronic music. Although the album's lyrics are downcast, they're paired against bright sounds in a bittersweet way. All vocals, production and instrumentation is handled by Emslie himself, with a knack for hooks and ear-worms far beyond his years.
