Wyvern Lingo are a three-piece from County Wicklow, Ireland comprising Karen Cowley (vocals, keyboards, bass synth), Caoimhe Barry (vocals, drums) and Saoirse Duane (vocals, guitar).
Friends and bandmates since school days, Wyvern Lingo share a gift for close harmony, keen songcraft and effervescent live performance. Drawing on a diverse range of influences from pop, rock and R’n’B, their voices interweave to create a fresh, forward-looking sound. A self-released EP caught the ear of Irish label Rubyworks, and the band toured with Hozier in the UK and at home; Karen and Caoimhe both putting in a double shift by singing backing vocals for their Wicklow friend. Karen also duets with Hozier on the haunting ‘In A Week’ on his multi-platinum debut album.
