Last week in the NMT we introduced you to three lovely ladies who go by the name of Wyvern Lingo who’s unique blend of folk, pop and r’n’b is wonderfully showcased in their debut E.P. The Widow Knows. And here’s a track from that delightful E.P. called ‘Used’ to refreshify your memory…
At the moment the girls are currently in the middle of a load of live dates supporting the equally brill Hozier on his sold out tour, along with a couple of their very own headlines in the big smoke, the first being tonight at the Shacklewell Arms and second being in a few more days time on the 30th at The Islington. And both of them are only ruddy FREE, so you can enjoy their sounds, grab a cheeky kebab, & get the night bus home all for under a tenner (obviously that’s completely dependent on where exactly you live, but you get the idea, it’ll be cheap cheap cheap)! Sounds like the perfect date night to me? Anyways, despite being constantly on the road and rehearsing left right and centre for the big gigs, the lovely ladies still managed to find the time to tell us what’d be on their Mini Discs, which was very nice of them, so if you’re looking for a bit of listening inspiration on this post bank holiday tuesday, here’s some ideas courtesy of the ‘Lingo lasses…
1. The Dalston Shuffle – One to impress your hipster mates with
Wyvern Lingo says – Hiatus Kaiyote, ‘Molasses’ - The music they’re making at the moment is unique, fresh and totally original. They’re a huge inspiration to us. They just brought out a new album which we love and can’t wait to hear more music from them.
Sexy, smooth and super cool. Three things we at YHM, strive and fall well short of being each and every day
2. WWE Superstud – Intro music for your wrestling alta ego
Wyvern Lingo says - Rihanna, ‘Wait Your Turn’ - THIS IS F*CKING EPIC! Rihanna is CLASS!
Talking of sexy, Ri Ri’s a bit of alright ain’t she
3. I Hate You / Please Don’t Leave Me – The one you’d club along to post break up
Wyvern Lingo says - Jeff Buckley, ‘Lover You Should have Come Over’ – He’s another one of our favourite artists. His lyrics are quite simple and honest, which makes him perfect to relate to.
One of the first non Oasis tunes I ever learnt to butcher on a guitar that. Precious memories.
Big thanks to Wyvern Lingo for those ace selections. If you wanna get some more info on the tour, their releases, or anything else Wyvern related here’s some links to help you do so…
Oh and make sure you get yourself down to either the Shacklewell tonight or The Islington saturday, to see the girls do their thang in the flesh. You will not be disappointed I can tell ya.
