Hvmmingbyrd - Legacy
Info: Founded by Deborah Byrne (lead vocals/electric guitar/production) with Suzette Das (lead vocals, synths/keys, production) in 2016, Hvmmingbyrd is a singer-songwriter/producer duo based in Dublin, Ireland. They fuse warm sensual vocals, electronic pulses and shimmering pop sounds with heartfelt lyricism.
Their first single ‘If Love Was Enough’ was Song of the Week on the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show, played by all major Irish radio stations and selected for in-store H&M playlists worldwide. They released their first EP Know My Name in September 2016 which was received with wide acclaim. They have performed at several notable Irish festivals such as the Body & Soul stage, Electric Picnic, and Indiependence and have supported established Irish acts The Young Folk and Ryan Vail, and they will be playing Vantastival, YouBloom and several other Irish festival slots yet to be announced. Hvmmingbyrd look forward releasing their second single Legacy and launching it on March 30th in the Workman's Club with support from Maria Kelly and Dreaming of Jupiter.

Where 'If Love Was Enough' saw Hvmmingbyrd launch their sound high into an anthemic stratosphere of electro-pop bliss, latest single 'Legacy' could be viewed as the loop back down to earth. It is refined, pensive and thought-provoking, with the video, directed by Brian Benjamin Dwyer, lending itself visually to the theme of empowerment and taking control, so we don't live to regret our choices, in particular those borne out of fear.
