The Dyr Sister's Fairy-tales for the Modern Gentleman is an ever-growing compendium of anti-ballads. An evolution into a small ensemble after a time as a solo entity was inevitable in order to more effectively transmit the surreal, subversive and sometimes provocative paintings of sound that respond to the vagaries of modern life.
Combining contemporary folk with post-hiphop and electronic music genres the Dyr Sisters songs are delivered with driving percussive beats via a backdrop of strings including Viola (Sally Currie), Harp (Stephanie Halsey) and Bass Guitar (Sarah Shiels) and layered with haunting and ethereal vocal harmonies. This is a devastatingly beautiful expression of what it means to be alive and kicking and still telling tales in these bleak times.
