About Methyl Lily
Methyl Lily is the ambient-electronic music project of producer Tyler Wells Lynch. Like “cellar door,” the name is phonaesthetic—it signifies nothing more than the sound of its utterance. As an instrumental project, Methyl Lily strives to cultivate a similar purpose: a study in contrast and change, major and minor, wordless dynamics through light and dark. Nothing more than the joy of sound.
Combining rich guitars, warm pianos, spacey violins, and hip-hop-inspired rhythms, Methyl Lily captures a sound that is ethereal yet grimy, ambitious yet raw, and free yet bursting at the seams. Some have described to it as “electronic post-rock,” others just “ambient.” A violinist called it “lo-fi EDM" and Tyler tried not to take offense, although that’s pretty damn accurate.
