Wyvern Lingo announce new album Awake You Lie & single ‘Rapture’


The Bray trio Wyvern Lingo have announced their second album entitled Awake You Lie.

After the release of a clutch of singles ‘Don’t Say It’, ‘Brutal Lottery’, and ‘Things Fall Apart’, the album comes out on on Friday February 26th 2021 on Rubyworks.

Recorded in JRS studios in Berlin before COVID-19 took over 2020, Caoimhe Barry, Karen Cowley and Saoirse Duane finished the album Ireland during lockdown.

“This album is so much about us comforting each other. It’s about being in your late-twenties, when all the pieces are starting to settle into place and you worry whether or not you’ve made the right moves.” 

The band dropped a new single ‘Rapture’ today from the album too:

“This is the sincerest love song I’ve ever written, inspired by overcoming long distance, and managing to remain completely overwhelmed by the mere existence of someone, even when apart.”

Karen Cowley

“A recurring image during this album writing process was light, the lack thereof, and wanting to see things more clearly, for ourselves and others. We called the album “Awake You Lie” because it evokes an image of night-time when someone should be sleeping but can’t, due to restlessness or worry. Things are always clearer in the light of day”
