The band's name is inspired by the kingfisher bird, which is a native of Ireland. The bird is known for its bright blue plumage and its graceful flight. Kingfishr's music is similarly colorful and dynamic. It is a mix of folk, rock, and electronica, with elements of spoken word and world music.

Kingfishr's music has been praised for its "powerful vocals", "catchy melodies", and "thought-provoking lyrics". They have been compared to bands such as U2, Ben Howard, and Hans Zimmer.The band released their debut single 'Flowers Fire' in 2022, the week before their final exams. They have since released further singles: 'Eyes Don't Lie', 'Heart In The Water', and 'Anyway'. This has led to support slots for George Ezra and Dermot Kennedy, as well as an opening slot for Bruce Springsteen at Hyde Park, London. During the past summer, they performed at multiple major UK festivals, including Live At Leeds, Neighbourhood Weekender, Barn On The Farm, and Latitude. Additionally, they had a successful debut sold-out show at the Workman's Cellar in Dublin.
