Hvmmingbyrd’s new video for their EP song ‘Legacy’ gives women who are the subject of public harassment a do-over in addressing it as it happens.

The video by shows the story of three women experiencing every day harassment from men, walking away feeling defeated and then getting a chance to do over their reaction a second time

Deborah Byrne and Suzette Das launch the song as a single in Workman’s next week, March 30th with support from Maria Kelly and Dreaming Of Jupiter.

Artists:

Hvmmingbyrd are a very different proposition from the alt-folk pop band they formerly traded as.

Now, a duo of Deborah Byrne and Suzette Das, the new lineup found a new sound and energy on alt-pop of ‘Out of My Head’ and a radio rotated big track ‘If Love Was Enough’.

Tomorrow marks the release of the five-track EP co-produced with Aisling Jarvis from which ‘Out of My Head’ features, Know My Name, and the release is very much a different proposition from the past. Among them are ‘Blindsided’, a synth pop song with low-end electronic pop, treated vocal electro on ‘Never’, trip-hop beats and harmonies on ‘Legacy’ and the wavey ‘Wish You Well’. Listen here:

The EP is launched with a full band on Thursday, September 29th in the Grand Social with support from Ailbhe Reddy and Rosa Nutty. Tickets only €6 on the door.

Artists:

Hvmmingbyrd are a Dublin band that recently reappeared as a duo and a new sound with the atmospheric alt-pop song ‘Out Of My Head’.

Suzette Das & Deborah Byrne’s new song pushes them further down that new road with a beautifully-executed song which was produced by the band and Aisling Jarvis. It will feature on Hvmmingbyrd’s forthcoming EP Know My Name to be released in September.

Watch the video directed & produced by Crooked Gentlemen.

The EP will be launched on Thursday, September 29th in the Grand Social with support from Rosa Nutty and Ailbhe Reddy.

Artists:

The alt-pop band Hvmmingbyrd recently underwent a transition in which they changed their lineup and reduced down to a duo. Where as previous songs like ‘The One I Love’ and ‘The Sad’ were in a harmony-lead orchestral folk vein, ‘Out of My Head’ sounds is a song that is more of an atmospheric alt-pop song, with looped electronic textures underpinning its production (by Aisling Jarvis).

Hvmmingbyrd launch the track in Whelan’s on Saturday with support from I Am Niamh, Saramai and Lauren Ni Chasaide (more on that in the gig guide) and the song has been added to the Nialler9 new Irish music playlist. It’s available on Bandcamp for purchase.
