Sync favourites Ardyn have had a busy year. As well as plenty of live shows and festivals, a whole raft of new material from the Gloucestershire-based brother/sister duo of Rob and Katy Pearson has emerged over the past few months and it’s seen them take a considerable creative leap forward.

We first caught a listen of their new material at the Dot To Dot festival back in May and it immediately grabbed the attention. Moving into slightly more pop-based territory while retaining the sublime folk sound that made their earlier material so engaging, the tracks released this year suggest a growing confidence and desire to develop an altogether more complete outlook. There is also a slickness to the production that elevates their work and is starting to get them the airplay that their obvious talent deserves.

Last year, they topped our end of year favourites list with the remarkable Over The River. This year, they once again appear in our final ten with Together which, as a sign of things to come, points to some very exciting directions for the future.
