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 for the Belhaven Bursary for Innovation at the 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, 2019 has seen the band take on Europe, Australia and a slew of exciting home shows. The year continues to be the band's biggest 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.
