Hey guys! 🙂
The piece I have for you today comes from the musical project called Bendith, from their album called Bendith, and the piece is called Bendith as well. Bendith have featured on my blog a few times earlier, because one of my faza people – Gwilym Bowen Rhys – took part in it. It is a collaboration between members of the band Plu (Gwilym and his two sisters) and Carwyn Ellis – leader of Colorama, an indie pop Welsh band. – Plu and Colorama sound very different from each other, but the four are all a very versatile bunch and, judging from the album, must have gotten along very well musically. The idea came from Carwyn Ellis, with whom the music of Plu resonated very strongly so he reached out to them asking if they’d like to do something together. And that’s how Bendith was born, it sounds a lot like Plu, yet different. I like how it’s both so contemporary yet also rootsy, filled with nostalgia and childhood memories. “Bendith” is the closing track from this album.
