Media interest and the Sound of the Sirens’ fanbase has rapidly grown in the wake of a stunning live performance on the first episode of TFI Friday on Channel 4 last October. Unashamed fan of the band Chris Evans invited them to perform alongside U2 and Take That and has also welcomed them on to his BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show.

This summer they are already appearing at many festivals including Glastonbury, Carfest North and South, Camp Bestival, Isle of Wight Festival , Cropredy, Cambridge Folk Festival, Beautiful Days and have just announced a headline show at London’s Bush Hall on 14th October 2016.

Sound of the Sirens are a foot-stomping, crowd-engaging female folk/rock duo whose strengths lie in their passion and chemistry. These girls know how to rock a stage, and make you believe in every word they sing. Individually, their voices tell their own tale but when blended together their harmonies leave the listener wanting more, compelled by its magic.

Exeter-based Abbe Martin and Hannah Wood are an enigmatic and tangible act who write, perform, record and evolve with a truly genuine attitude to an industry they love. The versatility of each original song is a responsive rollercoaster, stealing your attention, creating a furious arm’s in the air festival-vibe that sticks in your head for days. Woven with just enough haunting melancholy to silence an audience; the bitter-sweet lyrics stir the soul with a performance that needs to be experienced live.

The duo’s audience rely not only on the energy and diversity of the music, but also on the chemistry between them on stage. They’re witty and sincere, and it’s this very quality of down-to-earth engagement and communication during performance’s, that has seen their popularity rise substantially over the last few years.
