The Bray band cooks up a soulful-pop-RnB musical concoction Saturday night in Dublin's hoppin' Button Factory.
Groovy. That is the tasty word that comes to mind as I stand amid a delighted crowd of fans, swaying along to the pop-vibes of 'Sweet Life Ruiner.' Released in March this year, most of the set derives from their EP Letter to Willow and the 2014 EP The Widow Knows. But, having yet to release a full-fledged album, Wyvern Lingo cautiously tests out a new song by the second tune into the set, and judging by the applause, it is received warmly.
The trio amp up the venue another notch with an Alt-J cover- one of their favourite bands. 'Left Hand Free' comes basted with a juicy, spicy RnB flare only long-time friends Karen, Saoirse and Caoimhe can pull off. Everyone is encouraged to move around and clap their hands for this one.
Unexpectedly, the screen behind the girls transforms into a magnificent moving visual of pencil-drawn birds, a sun, lanterns and constantly changing landscape features. Between the healthy switch-up of which girl sang lead and the artsy visuals, entertainment is an A-plus all around.
