Dublin-based singer-songwriter Ylroy is set to bring their distinct songwriting to the Hot Press Y&E Series tonight, Friday 17th of November.
Irish-Filipino singer-songwriter Ylroy's impressive lyricism navigates queer experience, with stripped-back acoustic instrumentation and soft, ethereal vocals, dually channelling the genuine sincerity of folk and the idiosyncratic playfulness of anti-folk. Assuming an intimate and confessional songwriting style, Ylroy's sonic artistry is a unique tapestry of lived experience and inwardly-reflective introspection, charting their experiences as a queer person and the complexities of romantic relationships.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Judee Sill and Moldy Peaches, their craft is remarkably recognisable yet undeniably singular and authentic; an enthralling whirlwind of atypical instrumentation, enchanting soundscapes and incisive self-deprecation.
With the release of their debut EP Three Flowers For My Beloved in October of this year, Ylroy is already establishing themselves as an emerging voice in Dublin's indie music scene, having played sold-out shows in Dublin venues including Bellobar and Workman’s.
enchanting melodies, virtousic vocals and atmospheric instrumentation are to be expected, as Ylroy takes centre stage on the Hot Press Instagram for tonight's Y&E live set...
