Mei Emrys – “Brenhines Y Llyn Du” (Queen Of The Black Lake).

Hey guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

I think I haven’t posted much Welsh music lately, not as much as I used to. So I’m going to share with you this song by Mei Emrys, and perhaps a few more in the near future. He is a Welsh singer-songwriter, whose music, as many other artists’, I discovered thanks to the online Welsh radiostation called Cymru FM, which plays mostly music, and exclusively Welsh language music (apart from a track here and there in Cornish or Breton that I’ve caught occasionally). He does kinda rock music, or maybe it’s pop rock, something along these lines. And I quite like many of his songs.

Miriam Bryant – “Black Car”.

Hiya! ๐Ÿ™‚

Mainstreamy today. Mainstreamy, and from Sweden again, but in English. This singer is very popular in Sweden, and this song was song of the year 2016 in Sweden, so a real hit and you can still hear it quite often in the media. If I lived in Sweden, I’d probably be sick of it, but since I don’t, and haven’t heard it too often randomly, I still like it. What I actually like most about it is Miriam Bryant’s slightly husky and powerful voice. By the way, is it just me to whom it sounds a bit like Pink’s voice? I prefer Miriam to Pink though.

Gwibdaith Hen Frรขn – Coffi Du (Black Coffee).

Hi guys! ๐Ÿ™‚

Dw i’n hoffi coffi! That’s I like coffee in Welsh, doesn’t it sound cool? ๐Ÿ˜€

Any other coffee addicts here? This is a song for you. ๐Ÿ˜€ I love it, because it describes my relationship with coffee so well! OK, I don’t think I’m an addict, I can manage a day without coffee or more in necessary, it can just be damn hard when you have always very low blood pressure, but when I really want to feel the effects of coffee, I need to drink a few because I’ve never was particularly sensitive to caffeine. My Mum just laughed when I read the lyrics to her, she’s been drinking coffee everyday since she’s grown up and if by some accident she sometimes don’t do it on time, so right after she wakes up, she quickly gets an awful headache. But at least she manages on one coffee a day.

So yeah, today’s song is for the love of coffee, it’s just fabulous. And, as for the band, Gwibdaith Hen Frรขn are a trip folk band from north Wales, and I must say I like their quirkiness.

The lyrics are in the video, both Welsh and English. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ™‚
