Wyvern Lingo Release 'Snow II'

  • Published in News

Much like Die Hard, mulled wine, brussel sprouts and Mariah Carey, some of the best festive things aren’t actually that Christmassy at all. Add to that list the new track from Wyvern Lingo, ‘Snow II’, which drifts into the world on Friday November 24 on Rubyworks.

Caoimhe Barry, who sings lead on the song, says: “‘Snow II’ is partly written as a response to Simon and Garfunkel's 'I Am A Rock'. It’s from the perspective of the person trying to reach an ex lover who is in that dark place, cutting themselves off from the world.” She adds, “It's about wanting to comfort them, but you can't speak to them or hold them like you might have when you were in a relationship, and how sad and confusing that is”.

Originally recorded by the band in the summer of 2014, ‘Snow II’ now pulses with an ethereal glow courtesy of James Kelly’s (WIFE, Zola Jesus) rich production and Neil Comber’s (M.I.A., Crystal Fighters) shimmering mix. “This is the version we always had in mind for this track.” - adds Caoimhe. Following the successes of ‘I Love You, Sadie’ and ‘Out Of My Hands’, ‘Snow II’ is the third tantalising glimpse of Wyvern Lingo’s highly anticipated debut album, out in early 2018.





Wyvern Lingo Get Political with 'Out Of My Hands'

  • Published in News

Wyvern Lingo keep on moving ahead of the pack with the release of ‘Out Of My Hands’, their most candid, politicized song to date. Karen from the band says: “’Out of My Hands’ was inspired by a man I met in a pub, the night of the Home Sweet Home / Occupy Nama demonstration. He was completely cynical towards activism. I tried to get inside his head, that mistrust and negativity on the refugee crisis, homelessness in Ireland, and the Repeal the 8th movement.

As a wise old Irishman once said: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ‘Out Of My Hands’ challenges both apathy and skepticism, and asks some difficult questions about our daily engagement, both political and personal, with the world around us.

 ‘Out Of My Hands’ comes hot on the trail of the stereotype challenging radio smash ‘I Love You, Sadie’, as Wyvern Lingo once again show themselves to be the sharp social commentators that you can get down and dance to.
