Bio

It’s with intimate detail that Sydney two-piece kyü piece together their music. Freya Berkhout and Alyx Dennison have a distinct songcraft that yields the most magnificent results, a distinct style and sound that intersperses vibrant melodies amid vast soundscapes. It’s pop as much as it is experimental, ornate as it is raw, classical and contemporary in equal parts. Starting making music together only a year ago, kyü have managed more than most in 12 months. They’ve shared a stage with some of the world’s more interesting pop experimenters (Patrick Wolf, Why?, Tenniscoats, and Australia’s finest at Homebake 2009), won two prestigious competitions (Sydney Uni band comp and the Hopetoun Incentive) and then, above all this, they’ve recorded an album (released by Popfrenzy Sep 18).

One of the most exciting acts in Sydney at the moment. Somewhere between The Knife and Animal Collective. Awesome stuff.

Fever Ray and lots of other icy cold influences here. Can't wait to hear more.

another smashing track from Kyu - in short, Alyx and Freya could be the most exciting musicians in Sydney at the moment
