Premiere: Wyvern Lingo – ‘Beast At The Door’


With each passing song, Wyvern Lingo show a new facet of their developing sound, especially on their forthcoming EP release on March 4th through Rubyworks.

‘Letter To Willow’ has them giving a Dirty Projectors-style vocal to a 90s-style song, ‘Subside’ also recalled a 90s feel, specifically the work of Fiona Apple with a jazzier influence.

‘Beast At The Door’ has Caoimhe Barry, Saoirse Duane and Karen Cowley confounding expectations somewhat with a song that delves into an suspenseful filmic darkness and the warning that “she will eat us alive,” as the song grows to match that foreboding warning.

Wyvern Lingo’s biggest Dublin show will take place at The Button Factory on Friday 1st April.

The EP was recorded in Cologne with Sierra-Leonean / German artist-producer Patrice Bart-Williams, while the songs were mixed in Paris by Philippe Weiss (Dragonette, George Clinton, K’naan). Additional recording for the title track took place in Dublin with Rob Kirwan (Hozier, PJ Harvey) at the controls.
