Kildare/Dublin duo Hvmmingbyrd have been growing in stature and confidence since we last met them. The band have spent the summer touring but this by no way explains their latest release ‘Gozo’ which is out now.

The confidence in their writing and sound is perfectly illustrated with this latest release. Combining traditional Irish song writing troupes with a bleepy electronic soundscape that sounds more international means the duo have been listening, learning and know exactly what they want to produce. Expect to hear these two playing more international festivals next year so make sure you catch them while you can on these shores where they have three remaining dates on their national tour.

Aug 31 – DeBarra’s, Clonakilty

Oct 13 – The Spirit Store, Dundalk

Nov 17 – Leo’s Tavern, Gweedore
