Wyvern Lingo are a trio from Ireland. Their Choice Prize-nominated debut album, ‘Wyvern Lingo‘ (2018), established them as one of the most distinctive Irish acts of their time. Known for their soulful vocals and harmonies, they blend the pop, RnB and classic rock influences that have inspired them since they formed as young teenagers. They quickly developed a reputation in Ireland for their musicianship and dynamic live shows. After two years of touring Europe- playing slots at major festivals and opening for the likes of Grace Jones, Hozier, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra– Wyvern Lingo relocated to Berlin to record their second album. ‘Awake You Lie’ was released in February 2021 to critical acclaim in both Ireland and Germany, and was chosen as record of the week by Germany’s SWR2 and BR2, among others. Described by the Irish Times as “a beacon for all of us feeling lost at sea” in its 4* review, Awake You Lie is the band’s most ambitious work to date. This year’s recipients of the Sounding the Feminists/National Concert Hall Music Project Award, the band just released a unique livestream show in collaboration with visual artist 1iing heaney, and are spending the rest of the summer in Germany for their first taste of live shows since before the pandemic.
We’re excited to announce that Dani Larkin will be performing at Connolly’s on December 4th 2021. We’re honestly filled with excitement with the promise of live gigs again and we cant wait to have the venue filled again with music. Dani Larkin is a singer-songwriter and folk musician who is already being heralded as one of Ireland’s finest songwriters. Larkin has been creating music for several years, and is a well known face on the live circuit in Ireland. In 2019 she was artist-in-residence at Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival and has performed at Ireland Music Week, Other Voices (Ballina and Belfast), Output and Sound of Belfast. On the live circuit she has supported Rufus Wainwright, Joshua Burnside and Lisa O’Neill whose “honest, truthful storytelling style” she greatly admires. Following in the footsteps of these artists, she is a must-listen for those interested in contemporary folk music.
Kynsy, the solo project of the 23 year-old Irish multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer Ciara Lindsey, today shares a brand new single and video, “Mr Nice Guy”. The song is co-produced by Kynsy and James Dring (Gorillaz / Jamie T / Sorry) and sees Kynsy bring a swaggering, synth-drenched atmosphere to the detached nonchalance of her lyrics. The accompanying video was directed by Dave Fox and Conor Donoghue. Kynsy’s louche, almost rakish delivery is half world-weary lounge singer, half astute soothsayer. Moving from the metallic lurch of a nightclubbing Iggy Pop to the icy cool of St. Vincent and the futurism of Julian Casablancas, Kynsy has constructed her own world, one with a playful juxtaposition between the warmth of pitch perfect pop melodies and the stinging realism of her lyrics.
