Sound of the Sirens play The Glee Club Birmingham

July 5, 2017 in News

Exeter-based duo Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood dovetail beautifully on their debut album For All Our Sins which was released in May 2017 to wide praise including from R2 Magazine who called it a “stunning debut collection”. The girls appeared on ITV’s Weekend show with Aled Jones and the video for ‘Smokescreen’ was added to the BT TV playlist. For All Our Sins is out now on DMF Records on CD, Vinyl and Digital.

New single ‘Together Alone’ is an uplifting, catchy acoustic-pop song with eloquently delivered lyrics that carry a powerful message. They say “It’s a song about the power of people being connected in this life and about making the most out of the one we have.”

Their live shows combine a natural facility for connecting with their audiences and unforgettable performances with warmth, humour and, above all, real conviction. Chris Evansdeclared himself “blown away” when he saw Sound of the Sirens for the first time, and subsequently invited them to perform on TFI Friday last year – and more recently Jeremy Vine declared them “a revelation” after seeing them live. Last year saw them play a number of shows in the UK including Camp BestivalIsle of Wight Festival and supporting Rick Astley on his sold out UK tour. They supported Kiefer Sutherland on his UK dates in June, as well as playing at Glastonbury Festival and at a number of other festivals in the UK & Europe including Big FeastivalJimmy’s Farm and Greenbelt.

Sound of the Sirens to play The Sunflower Lounge

February 28, 2017 in News

There’s a certain transcendent magic that happens when two contrasting voices coalesce in perfect harmony. Imperceptibly, they can raise you from the temporal to the spiritual in the breath of a song, and set you floating among the firmament infused with a sense of wonder – just like Sound of the Sirens.

Exeter-based duo Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood dovetail beautifully on their debut album, For All Our Sins, a beguiling acoustic pop collection replete with lyrical sensibility on tracks like the first single, ‘Smokescreen’ (“Living beyond the darkness others create for us, and growing into something positive”), ‘The Circus’ (“When everyone wants something from you, who can you trust?”) and ‘Mr Wilson’ (“The chemistry of a new relationship, unsure of where it is going, but knowing that you want more from it”).

Already championed by Chris Evans – who declared himself “blown away” when he heard Sound of the Sirens for the first time, and subsequently invited them to perform alongside U2 and Take That on TFI Friday last year – they’re certain to broaden a burgeoning fan base on the back of For All Our Sins. It’s a fan base built up not just over several sublime EP self-releases – but also through their live shows, which combine a natural facility for connecting with their audiences and unforgettable performances predicated on energy, warmth, humour and, above all, real conviction. They are touring in May around the release of the album which comes out on 5th May on DMF Records and will be available on CD, Vinyl and Digital and will be playing at festivals over the Summer.
