All three girls participate in the song writing which make this a band that truly shares the workload. Their sound is hard to compare, but there are elements of KT Tunstall and Sandi Thom mixed in with a touch of blues or country depending on the song. Their Rising Stars entry, “Herbert Park” has a sharp beat but remains quite soft. It is a great example of Wyvern Lingo’s deep lyrics.
Songs such as “Fallen For You” and “Little Missy” also create soft complimentary sounds that show the extent of the work that goes into harmonising writing songs. “Little Missy” also has a great piano sound that keep it upbeat. The soft chilled out mood is easy to listen to without being too generic or commercial. However, their tone would appeal to an array of audiences while their talent would appeal to those critics who aren’t as easily swayed by catchy beats.
Wyvern Lingo are influenced by some of the greats, including Jimi Hendrix, Simon and Garfunkel, Joni Michell and Led Zeppelin as well as the singing talents of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. Fleetwood Mac is also a huge influence of theirs and is reflected in their harmonies.
The girls are constantly trying to develop their sound and the launch of their new EP in June points to exciting times ahead. Follow Wyvern Lingo on Facebook and Myspace.Share
