Home and Away’s new band Lyrik has ruffled a fair few feathers in Summer Bay, but as Theo Poulos signs up to be their new musician, fans think it could signal his exit
Fans of the Australian serial opera Home and Away are confident they are aware of a few facts about the band Lyrik.
Recently, a four-piece band with ties to Felicity was revealed to audiences, and while some fans are pleading for the release of complete songs of their music, others aren’t so enthusiastic about the newest newcomers to Summer Bay.
Others might not be aware that while some of Lyrik’s songs are pre-recorded by the performers, some of it is genuinely sung live on the show.
Adam Rowland, who plays Remi Carter, said on Yahoo! Lifestyle: “We do a mixture of both [pre-recorded and live]. Every song we perform, our team—who oversees all the music—helps us learn. Moreover, depending on the shoot and our goals We’ll tinker with playback while shooting.
On other occasions, particularly when playing the guitar, I’ll just play the track, which is amazing.
To find the correct “feel,” each actor auditioned for every part in the band, switching between each character during the initial casting phase.
We’ve looked into it, but what may their real reason be for being in Summer Bay.
Theo exit twist
After actor Matt Evans hinted at a major shift to Hollywood, some fans are persuaded that the band’s entrance might herald a major exit twist for Theo Poulos.
As Bob departs, Theo joins the group and impresses everyone at the audition.
Actor Matt, who was formerly a competitor on The Voice, finds performing to be quite easy.
One fan posted the following on Twitter to share their theories: “I’ve noticed that they write in characters, like the band, to provide other characters a route to go, like Theo.
“Don’t assume Lyrik are forever. They will take someone else with them when they depart because they have a mission. At this early point, I predict that will happen.
In an interview with TV WEEK, Matt hinted at leaving the company to pursue a career in Hollywood, saying: “Obviously I have ambitions when it comes to moving to the US and giving the States a try and seeing what I can achieve over there.
That was always the idea since I have a terrific agent and everything is set up there; otherwise, I feel like I would be thinking, “What if?
There’s already that worry of leaving the place and having to go and fend for myself, and [I’m thinking]: ‘What if I never work again?’ he continued, “I still feel so comfortable and at home on Home and Away.
Others are persuaded that Lyrik’s presence could indicate the reappearance of other characters, such as Phoebe Nicholson, who is portrayed by Isabella Giovinazzo.
One astute viewer pleaded with the writers to completely ignore the newbies and instead concentrate their plots on characters who had already been before, writing: “Bring back Tori and Christian, Brody, Phoebe, and a comeback for Emma Jackson! Irene’s children must come over! ”
The user continued, “No one likes Axe Lyrik, Rose, Xander, Cash, and Felicity!
While some viewers adore the musical interludes added to the Australian soap opera, others are more offended by Lyrik’s presence and want them to be removed.
One enraged viewer tweeted through their rage, saying: “Please write Lyrik out as soon as possible so they depart for the season finale! The plot is terrible.
“For once, pay attention to fan feedback on social media and give us what we want! #HomeAndAway.”
Then someone else responded, “Lyrik are terrible (from a UK viewer)!
A third echoed, “See, even UK viewers aren’t happy about this narrative. Please listen to the fans!
