Kyoto Love Hotel
Kyoto Love Hotel are an Irish 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 name Kyoto Love Hotel was inspired by Joe's time in Japan, where he collected samples of daily life-the rattle of a train, the buzz of friends conversing, the sounds of a musician drumming on the street. These often feature subtly in the music, with the intent of injecting movement and life whilst at the same time taking you somewhere a bit more intimate, a bit more secret.
