Gymnast are Manchester-based duo Cathy Wilcock and Chris Lyon. They played their first show at the Olympic Park during London 2012 - quite an introduction.
In Manchester, they have gained the support of some of the city’s key champions of new music, including BBC Radio Manchester, Thank Folk for That/Jackdaw Social and Fat Out Promotions. In addition to local interest, Gymnast have also received endorsements on national platforms such as Amazing Radio and BBC 6Music.
Having released their debut self-released EP 'Wait For Dark With a Heady Heart' in 2013 the duo are continuing to write and play shows in preparation for an album release in 2014.
"Great atmosphere created by eerie keys, juddering beats and ethereal voice. Precious, in all senses." The Times
"If you imagine a world where the Wild Beasts frontman were born a woman, it may sound something like this; but it’s safe to say that the electro-folk duo are really, and successfully, making their own unique sound in an already eclectic genre." Thank Folk For That Blog
"How I would want contemporary pop music to sound ... Gymnast are creating a sound that is fresh, innovative and different"
