WYVERN LINGO ANNOUNCE DEBUT UK RELEASE AND HEADLINE LONDON SHOW
Hozier support shows tee up new 4 track EP release for new Irish trio.
Wyvern Lingo are a three-piece from County Wicklow, Ireland.
Karen Cowley: vocals, keyboards, bass synth
Caoimhe Barry: vocals, drums
Saoirse Duane: vocals, guitar
Friends and bandmates since school days, Wyvern Lingo share a gift for close harmony, keen songcraft and effervescent live performance which belies their tender years. Drawing on a diverse range of influences from pop, rock and R’n’B, their voices interweave to create a fresh, forward-looking sound.
The trio are on tour in the UK in January as special guests of Hozier on his sold-out string of dates, which include three nights at O2 Academy Brixton. Karen and Caoimhe were members of Hozier’s touring band back in 2014, and Karen also duets with Hozier on the haunting ‘In A Week’ on his multi-platinum debut album.
Wyvern Lingo’s debut release for Rubyworks is a four-track EP called ‘Letter To Willow’. Three of the tracks were recorded in Cologne, Germany with Sierra-Leonean / German artist-producer Patrice Bart-Williams, and were mixed in Paris by Philippe Weiss (Dragonette, George Clinton, K’naan). Additional recording for the title track took place in Dublin with Rob Kirwan (Hozier, PJ Harvey) at the controls.
