Our new music feature takes us to Wales this week and we get introduced to the wonderful three piece Adwaith! We first heard Adwaith’s track ‘Orange Sofa / Byd Ffug’ played on a ‘Spotify Recommends’ playlist and also on the radio – we loved their sound and found their 2018 album ‘Melyn’ absolutely superb. We found out some more about the band and their plans for 2020 despite its current challenges.
So according to Google Translate the name of your band is Reason is that right?
Yes it is!
Tell us some more about yourselves?
We are all from the Carmarthen area in West Wales. Hollie and Gwen have been friends since they were 3 and we met Heledd at our first gig (when we didn’t have a drummer!) We jammed and it was great and the rest is history!
You released your debut album ‘Melyn’ a couple of years ago (which is a beautiful piece of work) and then there was your single ‘Orange Soda’ which strays away from your native tongue – will this be consistent theme or a mix for your future releases?
Yes we did release Orange Sopha in English but the Welsh route is definitely something we’re always going to concentrate on and promote.
We listen to a lot of Icelandic bands and notice how their songs in Icelandic don’t sound to far from yours – have you noticed any similarities between the two languages?
Yes there sure are similarities in the poeticness of both languages, we’d love to play there one day!
2020 is upon us – what is planned for Adwaith?
Definitely a second album! We’ve basically finished writing but recording and releasing are going to be difficult with the circumstances we find ourselves in now, so hopefully it will be out end of the year, fingers crossed!
What have you been watching, listening to or reading recently that you have been loving? Any recommendations?
I’ve just ordered John Cooper Clark new autobiography so really looking forward to reading that! Also our fellow label mates Sybs and Clwb Fuzz have just released new singles which we are loving right now.
Finally, what is your tip of the day?
Go check out Sybs and Clwb Fuzz!
