Sol y Sombra - 11.15pm
Syrens are a songwriting duo, named after the killer mermaids from Greek mythology.
Their music fuses many genres such as pop, folk and jazz. Ella grew up with a classical music background, starting violin at a young age. She fell in love with other genres such as R&B and Jazz through the years but continued classical training. Bríd's inpiration hails from the classic folk artists of the 60s like Bob Dylan and Simon and Garfunkel. Their influence on her narrative lyrics and striking imagery is hugely apparent. The instrumentation involves Ella on violin and keyboard and Bríd on guitar. However, their vocal harmonies are the main feature of most songs.
Ella Berke and Bríd Lyons met in BIMM, a music college where they both study songwriting.
Syrens released their debut single, 'Hit And Run', last January. This will be followed on July 12th by their next single 'Room For Two'. A launch will be held in Whelans, Dublin, on the 16th of July to mark the occasion. All future releases will be available on all digital streaming platforms.
