INYAL

Glasgow Based Folktronica

With their innovative fusion of mercurial tunes, ethereal songs and intricate electronics, INYAL have crafted a sound that owes as much to their traditional roots as it does to the rhythms of modern Scotland.

Nominated as ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ at the 2017 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards, INYAL have garnered a reputation for genre-defying compositions which belong to both Glasgow’s underground scene and its folk tradition. They expertly place reverberating synthesisers alongside deft drumming, melodic arrangements and the captivating Gaelic song of Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner, Josie Duncan.

Their melting pot of styles has led to the band’s live show being showcased on BBC Alba and RTÉ, as well as on the mainstages of festivals around the country, including Celtic Connections and the Hebridean Celtic Festival.

With their self-titled debut album now available, 2018 is shaping up to be the band's biggest year to date, and one which will see them established as one of Scotland’s most essential live acts.


Inyal’s sweeping soundscapes are sure to provide the backdrop to many a late-night gathering as we move into the long days of summer and beyond.

Mixing synths and elements of hip-hop, jazz and orchestral music with fiddles, pipes and whistles... we anticipate that 2018 will see Inyal further cementing their live reputation.
