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.
