Kyoto Love Hotel are an electronic duo made up of Joe Geaney and Laura Sheary. The pair grew up in the same town in Tipperary but nowadays they share music, sounds and words with one another from their respective homes in Cork and Belfast. The literal space that these ideas traverse acts as a sort of framework for the work they want to produce: expansive, alt pop songs that document the constant back and forth between inner world and exterior landscape.
The duo have played numerous shows around Ireland and further afield. Most recently they performed at The New Colossus Festival (New York), Other Voices, Electric Picnic, Ireland Music Week (2019), Output Belfast and Whelan's One's to Watch. Their debut EP entitled ‘Grow’ has garnered attention from notable outlets such as Clash Magazine (UK), The Line of Best Fit (UK), Nialler9, The Irish Times, State.ie and Hot Press Magazine. They are set to follow up with a second EP in Summer 2021.
