Hey guys! 🙂
Today I have a very beautiful song for you from an album which is a result of collaboration between two quite distinctively different Welsh bands – Colorama (which is more like alternative rock with some psychedelic and indie stuff as well as folk motives thrown in there) and Plu (which is classified as alt-folk or psychedelic folk). They called this project, as well as the album that came out of it, Bendith, which means blessing in English. The album focuses on pleasant childhood memories and so generally feels rather nostalgic, more specifically it evolves around Carwyn Ellis’ (the leader of Colorama and the initiator of this collaboration) fond childhood memories of Carmarthenshire. Plu is one of the bands where Gwilym Bowen Rhys – the object of my most recent major faza as you may know – is involved as a singer, guitarist and other stringed instruments player. I love Plu so this album is very special to me, even though it’s not exactly what you’d expect from your typical Plu album. I shared one song from this album in the past and a few others from Plu. I think, despite it came out in February, it’s a great listen for autumn. And I wonder whether they’ll be doing something more together. This song is one of my favourites from this album because it sounds very much like the sound of Plu. It just has a great feel to it.
