Wyvern Lingo announce Dolans Warehouse gig on September 15th

Indie R&B trio Wyvern Lingo is to play Dolans Warehouse on Saturday, September 15th, the venue have announced.

Coming on the back of an exceptionally busy summer for the band, the Dolans Warehouse gig will see the band return to Limerick following their support of Walking on Cars live at King John’s Castle in July.

Wyvern Lingo’s summer schedule 2018 will also see the band perform with Grace Jones at the Trinity Sessions in Dublin, Indiependence Festival in Cork and at both Reading and Leeds Festivals in the UK.

Wyvern Lingo consists of Caoimhe Barry (vocals, drums), Karen Cowley (vocals, synth, bass) and Saoirse Duane (vocals, guitar).

The three were childhood friends who forged lasting musical bonds as they grew older.  Before the release of their debut record, the band collaborated with the artist Hozier singing backing vocals in his live band and toured as his opening act. Along with their first Headline Tour, the band has received significant radio play in Ireland.

They recently released their new single. Entitled ‘Crawl’ the single is featured on their critically acclaimed 2018 album which was released last February.

Wyvern Lingo describe themselves as “…three individuals whose lives are inextricably linked. We know each other inside and out and can’t lie or fake it in front of each other, so our lyrics are awash with honesty.”

Originally inspired by the work of the likes of Thin Lizzy, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell and Simon & Garfunkel; the band then starting their own thread of music, which stitches together a rough but resilient tapestry of influences, taking in folk, hip-hop, rock and R’N’B, all  united by the spectral chill triggered by their unique vocal harmonies.

The trio self-released their first EP - “The Widow Knows” in 2014, which brought them to the attention of Irish independent label Rubyworks. Extensive international touring followed with James Vincent McMorrow and fellow-Bray native Hozier, and a second EP - “Letter to Willow”, followed in 2016.

According to the Irish Times their "eponymous debut album goes even further down that experimental rabbit hole." from their earlier demos and work with Hozier.

Thin Air, the global music and culture forum, highlighted their musical style on their first album as such: "This transition through the stages of heartbreak across the album present us with a question surrounding the transience of sadness. The sound of the album works alongside the development of this theme”.

Speaking after this morning’s announcement Neil Dolan said: “Limerick is extremely lucky to be graced with the unique style of Wyvern Lingo this year. We will see them support Walking on Cars in July but their stand-alone Warehouse gig in September really should prove to be something special”.

Announcement: Le Galaxie set for Limerick return this November

We are delighted to be able to announce the return of electronic music band Le Galaxie to Limerick in November. The band will return to Dolans Warehouse on Friday, November 9th.

Le Galaxie are now firmly established as Ireland’s number one live dance act with their brand of thundering electro, bursting to life with shimmering cyber-synths, pounding techno rhythms and guitar wizardry.

The debut album, 2012's LASERDISC NIGHTS II, was voted Number One Irish Album of the Year by Entertainment.ie.

Described by The Irish Times as a band who have “transformed themselves into a juggernaut of a party band, jack knifing into crowds who are only too happy to take the hit”, Le Galaxie played the iconic global music industry event SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas earlier this year.

The band’s frequent collaborator MayKay went full Le Galaxie in 2017, just as the band signed both a US record deal and an extension to their US publishing deal with Reservoir Music.

Their 2015 second album, Le Club, was mixed in Los Angeles by former DFA Records house engineer Eric Broucek and combined their signature sound with completely stunning female guest vocals Elaine Mai, MayKay and Senita Appiakorang.

LE CLUB was written and recorded in tandem with the bands relentless live schedule, which included sellout shows in Ireland's world famous Olympia Theatre, Berlinfest, Midem (France), SXSW, CMJ (New York), Benicassim (Spain), Lovebox (London), Eurosonic (Holland) among literally hundreds of other shows.

The band's third album Pleasure was produced by Swedish pop mind Blende and was described by the band as their manifestation of their dream to create a truly great studio dance record.

The band's first track, written with newly added band member MayKay was entitled Pleasure and was released worldwide earlier this year.

Le Galaxie was was formed in Dublin by Michael Pope, David McGloughlin, Anthony Hyland and Alastair Higgins. They played their first show as Le Galaxie in The Boom Boom Room in 2008, followed by regular sets in Whelan's, Crawdaddy and the Button Factory.

Speaking at today’s announcement Neil Dolans said: “Le Galaxie gigs are simply incredible. This summer the band play a host of Irish festivals and the opportunity to see them perform in the more intimate setting of Dolans Warehouse is something fans will not want to miss”.
