Melys – “Llawenydd” (Joy).

Hi hi people! 🙂

Today I’d like to share with you a song from a band of whose existence I’ve known for a couple years but only recently started listening to their music more. They are from the Conwy area in Wales and are quite a successful band, not only on the strictly Welsh-language music scene but also more broadly, which is probably thanks to John Peel – a BBC Radio 1 DJ and presenter who, while not being Welsh himself, had a great interest in Welsh music and promoted it a fair bit, and seemed to be a particularly big fan of Melys. –

Their name means sweet in Welsh (the word melys does taste really sweet indeed in my synaesthetic, lexical-gustatory brain 😀 ). While there are Welsh rock bands that I like more and I’m not crazy about Melys, I definitely do like them and have been listening to a lot. The single I want to share with you is from 2019.
