Iris Gig

IRIS Late Night Special VOYA + Ivor Woods

In an age where everything is streamed almost as soon as it’s created it is refreshing to find a band that are building their following ‘off grid’ gig by gig. 

Voya are a Cardiff duo influenced by the meticulous song writing, opulent production and emotive vocals of early 80s British synthesiser-based pop music. Linford Hydes trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama; his previous work was leading the art-rock band Palomino Party. Eddie Al-Shakarchi is an award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist that shaped the sound of Boy Azooga’s acclaimed ‘1, 2 Kung Fu!’ album. The band’s reputation is growing exponentially leading to sold out shows and appearances at the prestigious Great Escape and Greenman Festivals.

Their special guest for the evening will be Ivor Woods solo project of South Wales based queer artist Rachel Crabbe. Expect wild exuberance, huge amounts of energy and fabulous tunes!
