Sound of the Sirens

‘Damage Control’, now to be released in March 22 is a collection of unique and contrasting songs that were born over 2019-2020, produced by Saul Davies from James. The songs take you on an emotional journey through reflection, love, loss, disappointment, anger, excitement hope, and many more, with each song purposefully capturing a different emotion. Ending with the the words ‘a world where we can all together sing’ ; reflecting on the traumas we have all faced over the last couple of years. This album captures a sound that Sound of The Sirens have been hoping to achieve for many years, and Saul has managed to help them create this.

“We are very excited to share this record with our fans, and we hope it will reach more people with this new and evolved Sound. It is still us, but with a new flavour added. We are so excited to be bringing more musicians in to play live with next year. It’s what we’ve been working towards and it feels like it is finally happening!”

Sound of the Sirens are a singer-songwriting duo based in Exeter, Devon comprising of Abbe Martin & Hannah Wood. Honing their craft over the past decade, Martin & Wood have cemented themselves as firm favourites not only on the Westcountry scene, but nationally, and internationally too. Their status, and fast-growing fan-base is not only testament to the pair’s prowess as songwriters and musicians, but as people too.

Martin & Wood are two of the hardest working musicians on the scene and wear their hearts very much on their sleeves in terms of their songwriting. The pair glide gracefully through laments of past relationships, and life experiences, as well as highlighting the important topics of the day, namely mental health awareness, and homelessness. Without being pigeonholed into any stereotypical genre, the instrumentation of the band is vast, and varied. Martin (stage right) plays acoustic and high-strung (Nashville tuning) guitar, mandolin, and bass drum, while partner in crime Wood (stage left) plays acoustic and electric guitar, tambourine, snare drum, and the piano.

The pairs’ musical and vocal dexterity dovetail beautifully on the co-written songs, which range from beautiful, emotive ballads, to up-beat, foot stomping, hands in the air, sing-along anthems. The dynamic duo and their musical creations translate very well onto recorded media, but it is in the live arena where the girls truly excel. There is a certain majesty about their live performances that simply cannot be put into words. It is this “je ne sais quoi” that keeps their loyal fans returning from far and wide to see these two perform. It is not just nearly two hours of high-quality live music you get for the entrance fee, a Sound of the Sirens show is much more than that. The onstage chemistry, camaraderie, and banter is worth the ticket price alone.


“With tracks like these, it’s hardly surprising that the duo have received high-praise from the likes of Chris Evans, who invited them to perform alongside U2 and Take That on TFI Friday last year”. – Culturefly (For All Our Sins album review)

“Their harmonies are absolutely stunning and their vocal styles complement each other beautifully, as well as being excellent musicians who really know how to bring their songs to life”. – Entertainment Focus

“I think there is a great lesson to music to learn from these two, and it’s got to be “love those that you get to make music with”. – Pavilions Introduces

“First impressions of the album are of the high level of professionalism that has gone into the production and promotion of the LP. Sound of the Sirens are all about fun”. – MNPR Magazine (This Time album review)

Undisclosed costs I was disappointed that the full cost of the show wasn’t disclosed up front. I.E. the rider cost which I found excessive for such a small show. But the agent did sort it out for me. John Beverly Krakatoa Aberdeen

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.
