Sealionwoman, is vocalist Kitty Whitelaw and double bass player Tye McGivern. Together they craft a unique and defiantly uncategorisable sound. Whitelaw’s rich and beguiling vocal delivery and McGivern’s atmospheric, inventive approach to his instrument creates melancholy soundscapes, torch-song transgressions and rapturous drama. In late 2018 they released their first album “Siren” with Antigen records, and their second album is currently in production.

Kitty and Tye have been collaborating for many years and have played numerous live venues in the UK including EARTH Hackney, Union Chapel and Cafe Oto. They have also had the opportunity to support incredible acts such as Meursault, Tanya Tagaq, Bohren and der Club of Gore, Sarathy Kowar, and Collocutor.

“Sealionwoman’s music flips folk music on its head, taking traditional Scottish music and moving it into a darker, more atmospheric direction… their debut LP Siren is a record quite unlike any you will hear this year. “


“Björk, Billie Holiday and The Anchoress come to mind while listening to Kitty Whitelaw’s exquisite vocals… It’s Mercury Prize bait, this – haunting, monolithic soundscapes…”

-Prog Magazine


LUKI is the music project of singer and pianist Lucy Duncan and producer Misha Rivers. Using voice, piano, synths and electronics, they create atmospheric pop that blends the everyday and the imaginary with theatrical and emotive force. Indebted to folk, post-punk, art pop and the odd edges of musical theatre, their music is immersive, narrative driven and direct. Following the release of ‘Wisps’ on Glasgow’s label GLARC in 2018, LUKI released a single ‘The Parts’ on lathe-cut label Sonido Polifonico. Their debut EP ‘Half True’ was self released.
