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.
