It matters not a jot that the lyrics are in Welsh and despite my lineage (my Granny is Welsh) I understand not one word – on Gwenno‘s new EP Ymbelydredd the ennui and longing of youth shine through whatever your mother tongue.
I’ll be interviewing Cardiff based Gwenno Saunders – who is best known as one member of The Pipettes – about the making of her new record soon. In the meantime enjoy the retro saturated tones of the video (directed by Steve Glashier) for the lead single Ymbelydredd which tells of dozy summer afternoons, teenage loves and being hassled in a dress from C&A.
