And this is another song on my blog from one of my most favourite Welsh bands, which I still love no less than the last time I shared their song with you guys, and still didn’t come up with an idea why I like them so much. 😀 It’s gorgeous, and so is Jac Davies, the vocalist! 🙂
Hi people. 🙂
This is the Christmas song of the day I have for you. I heard it last year for the first time and it somehow stuck with me, I really like it for some reason and I hope you will too. 🙂
Hi guys. 🙂
Today I have for you another very Christmassy song, from another of my crushes – Gwilym Bowen Rhys – and more exactly the first band in which he sang and played guitar, called Y Bandana. It doesn’t exist any longer, but from what I know from a fellow Gwil’s fan from Wales he is most known for being a member of this band as they were so successful on the Welsh language music scene and I guess thanks to the fact that they were making pop music could reach just slightly wider audience. That’s cool and I really like their music, although I think Gwilym’s solo music, folk music, is so very beautiful, so it’s a pity that for many people he is associated only with Y Bandana, and there is also the band called Plu which i also shared here earlier, who make great, sort of psychedelic, otherworldly music.
Anyways, I really like to listen to this song in Christmas season, it’s funny and just great. 🙂
Yeah I didn’t give up haha, recently I have again a small obsession with this Welsh band and their song was what I planned to share with you today, and my stroppy Spotify effectively made it impossible for me. I don’t have the song I wanted to share, because I don’t have it anywhere else than on Spotify ( 😦 ) but I have another one from Yr Angen.
I still like Jac Davies – the vocalist – as much as I did when I shared the first song by them with you, and I still don’t know why I like him so much because his voice is so much not my style lol, but I really like him to pieces and I find music of this band really resonating with me for some reason I still don’t know either. So I will give you just the link to my Dropbox and it will expire after a month. I planned to listen to Jac tonight but, ugh, not happening, probably. 😦
Here’s another song from Alys Williams and Ifann Dafydd of those two I promised you. As I said, I really like them both, don’t know which one I prefer. As for the word llonydd, from what I know it means still, as in quiet, peaceful.
Hi guys. 🙂
I’m very sorry I didn’t finish the 3 Day Lyric Challenge, I was feeling very crappy physically yesterday and am still not doing very well, and just wasn’t feeling like writing anything at all. So instead my song for yesterday is from ALys Williams. If you’re with me since some longer time you may remember her from my previous song of the day posts, I shared with you her performance in The Voice, as well as other songs she’s made in both English and Welsh. This is a bit different, because even the genre of this song is definitely different. All the previous songs by Alys I’ve shown you were kinda pop or rock(ish) stuff, she has done also some folk music, but this is made in collaboration with a Welsh electronic musician – Ifan Dafydd. He has made two songs with Alys as the vocalist. I’m gonna show you both of them, the second one will be probably tomorrow. This one is called “Celwydd”, which, according to what I’ve read, means “lie” in Welsh. I’m not really sure because actually I’ve heard that lie is gorwedd in Welsh, but maybe that’s just a synonym, or something like this. Anyway, I really like this. I think Alys’s vocals make this very interesting to listen to.
Hope you enjoy. 🙂
Hi guys. 🙂
Sme time ago I’ve showed you a few songs from the Welsh-language band called Gwilym. Well actually those were all of their songs as they’re quite a new band. But, as they are showing, a very dynamic one, because all the time there’s something new from them, and they get a lot of attention on the Welsh language music scene. So far, I like all their songs, so I follow all the new stuff they’re doing.
And here’s a brand new song from them, I really like it, and I hope you will too. 🙂
