Laytha

Laytha

With a sound that is as wild, beautiful and untamed as their home in the west of Ireland comes Laytha. An indie-folk duo cut from the same cloth as Saint Sister and First Aid Kit, these Irish singer-songwriters specialise in weaving fiery tales and cold ballads. A fusion of contemporary indie melodies and harmonies with a dark, traditional folkish rhythm, the roots of Laytha run deep and spread wide.

An indie-folk act informed as much by the future as they are by the past, Laytha’s combination of stunning narratives and addictive song composition has helped them establish themselves as one of the brightest new talents in Ireland.

On their debut track ‘What Will I Gain’, the two-piece paint in subtle strokes, creating beautiful portraits and landscapes, lined with ache, wanderlust, and a sublime yearning. Recorded in Big Space studios with Declan Legge (SOAK, Jealous Of The Birds, Ciaran Lavery), Laytha set the foundations of their world firmly in the traditions of gentle acoustic folk, swirling indie and pitching harmonies.

“County Fermanagh’s best kept secret.” – Hot Press

“While the lyrics flow with questions and doubts, ‘What Will I Gain’ is a certainty.” – YEO Magazine

“Stunning narratives and addictive song compositions, combined with flawless harmonising.” – The Fountain

Amazing roster I've known Midnight Mango since the days when John Smith was an upcoming artist and their roster is now even more amazing and their professionalism is unmatched. Saw some amazing acts at Beautiful Days and Funke and the Two Tone Baby rocked the Bimble Inn with a bouncing crowd.
