~ my eyes catch colour when they're closed / the bloom of these people / the scent as they grow ~
Kyoto Love Hotel are an electronic pop duo made up of Joe Geaney and Laura Sheary.
The pair grew up in the same town in Tipperary but nowadays they share music, sounds and words with one another from their respective homes in Cork and Belfast. The literal space that these ideas traverse acts as a sort of framework for the work they want to produce: expansive, atmospheric songs that document the constant back and forth between inner world and exterior landscape.
This is music that melds introspective, reflective lyrics with alternative-pop sensibilities
The duo have played numerous shows around Ireland and further afield. Most recently they performed at The New Colossus Festival (New York), Other Voices, Electric Picnic and Output Festival.
Their recent releases have garnered attention from notable outlets such as Clash Magazine (UK), The Line of Best Fit (UK), Nialler9, The Irish Times, State.ie and Hot Press Magazine. Their EP 'Grow' is set for release on December 11th, 2020.
