The word is out. With the release of their self-titled debut album, Bray trio WYVERN LINGO are set to take the world by storm. Sitting down with Hot Press for their first cover story, school friends Karen, Caoimhe and Saoirse talk tattoos, touring, songwriting – and the importance of feminism.
Different bands bond together in different ways. Some sleep together. Some take holidays together. Others take drugs together. Following their show at a UK music festival last summer, Karen Cowley, Caoimhe Barry and Saoirse Duane – the Irish trio of vocalists and musicians collectively known as Wyvern Lingo – decided that the best way to mark their ongoing artistic journey was for them all to get matching tattoos.
“Yeah, we all got the same one,” laughs Caoimhe. “We were at The Great Escape in Brighton last May and we’d been joking about getting them done. Actually, I feel kinda bad, because one of our crew members wanted to get it done with us, but he wasn’t there at the time.”
“He would have,” says Saoirse. “But we’re going back there again, so he can do it then.”
