IMRO took the opportunity to present Bray trio Wyvern Lingo with their IMRO Award, in recognition of their Independent number one self-titled debut album ahead of their guest appearance with Grace Jones in Dublin’s Trinity College.
The IMRO Number 1 Award was introduced to acknowledge IMRO members who reach number 1 in the album charts here in Ireland.
Released in February 2018, Wyvern Lingo recorded the album in Dublin with producer James Kelly, with additional work taking place in Donegal, London and Cologne.
The trio self-released their first EP – ‘The Widow Knows’ in 2014, which brought them to the attention of Irish independent label Rubyworks. Extensive international touring followed with James Vincent McMorrow and fellow-Bray native Hozier, and a second EP – ‘Letter To Willow’, followed in 2016.
“These songs are a collection of experiences both separate and shared. Experiences that shape how we view the world, and how we’ve come to terms with the way our lives have unfolded.” – Wyvern Lingo
The band have a summer filled with festival dates in Ireland, the UK and Germany before their own headline date in The Academy, Dublin, on 28th September.
