Ynys - Mae'n Hawdd

Ynys, aka Dylan Hughes (Former Races Horses) follows his debut single 'Caneuon' with another fine piece of Welsh language pop ‘. Originally written 5 years ago, Hughes roped in his friend to Mali Llewelyn to add vocals and finish it off.

In the height of Stranger Things series 3 fever, it’s a perfectly timed release. The 80s synths recall the exquisite theme tune from the Duffer Brothers masterpiece.

Hughes' ability to conjure the 60s pop Burt Bacharach and the melodic peculiarities of Gruff Rhys act as a tonic to the synths. There is an effortless flow to this tale of wandering the coast at midnight. It’s a freeing of the soul in a world gone mad.

With a summer and autumn tour booked, be sure to get out and see the UK's latest alt-pop sensation.

Friday 2nd August marks our 8th birthday. Come down to the New Cross Inn for a night of great live music. Tickets available here:

Ynys – Caneuon

Ynys is the new project from ex Race Horses icon Dylan Hughes. Released today on Libertino Records, it is timed to perfection with the sun beating down on the UK once more.

The Welsh language will be alien to many but, in fractious times, Hughes’ delivery should signify just how much togetherness can be gained via difference.

It’s an effortless sun kissed Elliot Smith track which meanders without a care in the world. Although clearly a great slice of pop, there is a defiance to this record. A carefree attitude for sure but, with an immediacy and a sense of “my time is now” permeates throughout.
