Transport For Lovers (September ’19)
Transport For Lovers is an evocative and enthralling monthly journey on Melodic Distraction in which Tom Lye runs through emotionally driven tracks to leave you a little more grounded and hopeful for the future.
Previously, Tom held down a regular Sunday morning slot with his show Better Days. While that show has now been retired following a year of service, Transport For Lovers is a new opportunity to showcase powerful songwriting and productions that have connected with him recently. Alongside the track selections, Tom hosts conversation, debate and guest mixes with friends and artists on various political and creative topics as he looks to expose the escapism often seen in music with a clear positive space for learning, sharing and platforming innovative ideas.
This time around, Tom kicked the show off with two hours of deep, meditative music. It just happened to land on his birthday too, so jump in and celebrate with him…Tracklist
