Biography

The band has emerged from kellie's solo meanderings on the open mic circuit of Dublin. With songs rich in meaning and poetic lyrics, a bigger sound was needed to express them fully. Enter, Annie Hanlon, with her magic fingers.The piano and guitar together proved to be something very special. Annie, who is now doing her phd in music and Kellie, who has no formal music training, began educating eachother in very different ways.Breaking the strict rules of musical notation and tightening up haphazzard ryhthms, a very unique sound began to escape. This is the essence of the Polyrhthms.With influences like Pj harvey and Tori Amos, intense melodic expression and expermentation have become a staple for the band. Each song demands something new. The girls are currently expanding their playing of instruments so that each song will have it's own sound.
Their recent gigs have been in In venues across Dublin, the biggest of which took them across the boarder to play in Sandino's Cafe Bar in Derry, Northern Ireland, Supporting Belfast based BoatHouse.
The Girls are working on their Debut ep which was originaly entitled, Taming the beast, but proved be un-tameable, the title came from Kellie's painful inability to keep time with the others and resulted in their polyrhythmic structures!! yes, it makes sense!! We swear.
