Out now on Cae Gwyn Records
Roedd, the new Omaloma EP is out now (download, stream)
Written and recorded during the first lockdown, recorded by remote due to the climate, this collection of songs represents the Dyffryn Conwy band’s attempt to make sense of a turbulent world.
400+ was written on the day Edward Coleston’s statue found its new rightful home in Bristol Harbour, Afalau Drwg considers the divisions confronting America, Awyr Agored is a lament for those unable to afford a house where they grew up – in this instance a tranquil valley and its imagined transformation into an adventure park. Peloton – somewhat different in tone though not without poignancy – chronicles a cyclist who’s unsure whether they’re good enough to compete in the race they’re in.
Written by George Amor. Performed by George Amor and Llŷr Pari. Recorded and produced by Llŷr Pari. Artwork by Dafydd Owain. Mastered by Iwan Morgan.
