Igloo Hearts

Wrexham based duo Igloo Hearts are made up of Welsh married couple James and Katie MacGregor. Their music incorporates classical piano and powerful harmonies, in a style that is hauntingly beautiful.

Igloo Hearts have been featured several times on BBC introducing Wales. Adam Waltons’ (BBC Radio Wales) response to their latest single (FishFood) was ‘Oh My God, that’s really, really good!!’ and ‘There is something quite ‘McCartney – esque’ about the melody’.

Indie Music For All wrote ‘I am astounded by the talent of this couple. They are a combination vocally, of the best bits of Kate Bush and Enya. A bigger compliment I couldn’t give them.’

They were one of six bands selected for the Autumn FOCUS Wales 2021 ‘Songwriting Bootcamp’, working alongside producers such as Cian Ciaran (Super Furry Animals). They were also finalists at the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Competition 2022.

Their passion is sweeping the listener up in a tidal wave of major/minor chordal progressions, with dark twists and turns, and goosebump inducing vocal harmonies.
