Lily Somerville and Megan Markwick found each other at Falmouth University, now the world is discovering their music.
As Ider, they’re currently headlining their own European tour and supporting Sigrid on her UK and Ireland arena tour.
They’ve been rated by NME, MTV, Vice, the Independent, the New York Times and the Guardian who said their album, Emotional Education, was “full of world-class, homegrown pop”. Their single, You’ve Got Your Whole Life Ahead of You Baby has been streamed nearly 14 million times on Spotify.
Course Leader for Popular Music, Dr D Ferrett said, “We’re extremely proud to have been part of Ider’s journey and thrilled that they have received such well-deserved recognition for their album. From the very beginning of their degree, Ider’s creativity and strong work ethic was focused on developing a unique vision for fresh and contemporary pop. The result is evident in their incredible performances that combine quality songwriting, captivating voices and a range of electronics which all come together to produce a super charged enthralling live experience.”
The duo graduated from BA(Hons) Popular Music in 2014 and were signed less than a year later.
