Kildare band Hvmmingbyrd re-formed from its folky quintet beginnings of 2013, to an alt-pop duo in 2016 with original member Deborah Byrne joined by Suzette Das. With their atmospheric use of complex vocal arrangements and loops, and electronic sounds using synths and drum machine, they have drawn comparisons to artists such as Enya and Massive Attack. Named Hot Press Super Six in 2015, their first single ‘Out of My Head’ released in 2016 was featured by Nialler9 and selected as Song of the Week on The Irish Times. They look forward to playing Indiependence Music Trail, Live at Heart festival in Sweden and Electric Picnic this summer, and launching their new EP ‘Know My Name’ produced by Hvmmingbyrd and Aisling Jarvis on September 29th in the Grand Social.
