Come And Get It
This is the new single by Áine Duffy & The Hypnotyst, titled "GRIT".
Flirting with dance, rock and funk with all the best parts. They combine genres and moods in an innovative way to create a new sound designed to get the dance floor rocking and concert venues partying.
"Having earned copious praise from Tony Clayton-Lea and the late Tony Fenton alike, Áine Duffy has a well-established reputation as one of Cork’s finest vocalists. She has toured the world and built an impressive session CV. But her new partnership with local musical wunderkind The Hypnotyst is her most promising move yet. Combining their mutual musical capabilities with a love of all things rave, the duo have created an extroverted, electronic rock sound that could be very successful indeed." HotPress Magazine, October 2016 (Vol 40, Issue 18)
They plan on releasing their debut album in 2017.
Their music is mastered by world class, three time Grammy nominated Emily Lazar (The Prodigy, Sia, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Moby, David Bowie), who is their expert of sound.
Hot Press "The new single from the Cork-bred, globe-trotting tune-smith offers an intriguing taster of her full length album With Bells On. Flirting with rock, funk, soul and more, it’s topped off with the multi-instrumentalist’s unmistakable, scale-busting croon; while the stabbing guitars add some welcome sizzle to proceedings. "
“With Bells On” is a wake up call to other musicians who might change their style of singing or their voice in order to sound more commercial. Áine doesn’t do that and that is why this album succeeds. She sings in her own very unique style which gives her an edge. Its refreshing to find " Street ceoil tv"
"There’s something fantastically refreshing about west Cork native Áine Duffy " James Hendicot
