Adwaith : Fel i Fod / Newid (AA Single)Released 16.02.2018 : Libertino Records
Just over a year since they appeared with their debut single Pwysau, already fully formed as a post-folk phenomena, West Wales trio Adwaith have released another two exceptional tracks.
As much as Pwysau instantly mesmerised and flickered Fel i Fod is the complete article - a sparkling song by any measure, written about 'uncertainty and fear of life at the threshold of a new beginning'. With it Adwaith continue to demonstrate an astonishingly fast development of songwriting confidence and ability.
The second song is harder edged; Newid is monumental political post-punk - an anthem about the 'cold, selfish world of Brexit and Trump' that finishes with a statement of hope, 'They never break us'.
These songs, as are all their singles so far, are the foundations of a serious career - and confirm Adwaith to be at the front edge of a creatively fearless Wales.
