Describing themselves as Avant Pop and capable of some truly gorgeous melodies, it is with some delight that Welsh duo Trwbador launch Just Played’s attempt at streaming suitably splendid tunes in your direction. Having set up their own label, Owlet Music, the pair unveiled their debut EP last summer, ‘Sun In The Winter‘, which can still be purchased here. With some fortuitous timing, I believe the good ship Radcliffe and Maconie gave the band a play on 6Music only today, so nice to know that people are hearing their wonderful music. Chief amongst their supporters, and the man to whom I should doff my cap for the steer on this fine new tune, is Adam Walton. The squire of all things new, Welsh and musical, his genuinely delightful Radio Wales show has just been relocated to Saturday nights at 10pm (after the equally ace Bethan Elfyn) and is always worth three hours of your time.
Anyway, this delightful track, ‘Deffro Ar Y Llawr‘ has been played on Radio Wales and performed live for the lovely Huw Stephens and the good folk at Green Man. I think, and keep in mind that my Welsh is terrible, that it means ‘Wake Up On The Floor’. Don’t quote me on that. Trwbador aren’t sure exactly when this will be out there for you to buy but, for now, you can keep coming back here to listen to it. Spread the word:
