Wyvern Lingo bringen uns souligen Indie-Pop aus Irland. Die drei Musikerinnen sind bereits weit über ihre Heimat bekannt. Nach einer längeren Kreativphase haben sie nun die ersten neuen Songs aus dem kommenden Album veröffentlicht. Bereits nach dem ersten Reinhören ist sicher: Der Sound ist noch kraftvoller und die Vorfreude auf das Album steigt weiter.
Karen Cowley, Caoimhe Barry and Saoirse Diane have known each other since their youth. They started making music together at an early age. This mixture of friendship and band created songs with harmonic melodies on the first album. One seems to hear the friendly togetherness in every song. The songs of Wyvern Lingo sound as if they were created by themselves.
Between Led Zeppelin and Beyoncé
My interview with Karen confirms my suspicion: Here is finally a band that is connected by a long lasting friendship. The musicians and their music have grown evenly and have thus developed naturally. “Everything comes together more or less automatically when we write new songs together,” says Karen. Surrounded by the sound of the girl bands in the 90s, they took only the best with them: The soulful RnB sound with light beats and lots of warmth. Add to this their extraordinary voices, which are given even more power by interlocking harmonies. Through the many rocking guitar runs Wyvern Lingo has freed himself from the folk influence of the first releases. The pieces sound bolder, but still familiar.
Already with the first note of “Don’t Say It” it is clear: Wyvern Lingo have become even more powerful in sound. Drums, guitar and vocals are set to the point. After the first few bars the sound fades out gently and increases again to the first chorus. The band themselves say about the single: “This is the first release from our upcoming album, which is about many personal changes and growth. It was the basis for the three of us as friends to go through this together, and we are very happy to finally exchange new melodies about this time in our lives.
Looking forward to 2021
The second single “Things Fall Apart” starts off gently and climbs so perfectly that one would like to put it almost directly into the rock area. The three strong voices of Karen Cowley, Caoimhe Barry and Saoirse Diane catch the built up tension again with beautiful harmies and give me a new favourite song about change and togetherness. With the just released acoustic version, the three have directly conquered my heart.
On their social media channels the band has just happily announced the 15 tracks are finished and shares a video snippet via Twitter.
THE ALBUM IS BEING MASTERED TODAYYYY AND EVERYTHING IS SHAPING UP SO NICELYYY! Buzzing for ye to hear it!— Wyvern Lingo (@WyvernLingo) October 16, 2020
Karen tells me on the phone that the production didn’t run completely smoothly during the lockdown. The plan was to move the band permanently to Berlin. Luckily, the recordings in JRS Studio (Jazzanova Recordings Studio) were finished in July, so that the missing parts could be done from Dublin. Now the recordings are finished and for the next days a few small gigs are announced.
