“…it offers a new chapter in the story of Welsh folk music…
Her story is distinctive and rich and adds to Wales’ own.”
- Danny KilBride, Director, trac: Music Traditions Wales 2013
In a whirlwind of excitement this EP was recorded in time for WOMEX and produced by the masterful Charlie Francis. We are almost deliriously happy with it – working with such a pro producer helped us turn our sonic ideals into reality. I think my favourite is No.4 ‘I Chwerthin’, but I love them all, especially the Tom Waits-esque percussion on ‘Criwch Ddim’ (which involved a bucket and a radiator), the layered vocals in ‘Two Wild Birds’, the intensity of ‘La La Low’, plus of course, Noel’s stupendously impelling drums and double-bass throughout. Hope you enjoy, let us know
