Adwaith are Gwenllian, Hollie and Heledd; a post-folk, post-punk band from Carmarthen, South West Wales.
The release of their debut single ‘Pwysau’ at the end of 2016 heralded a new brave and exciting chapter for Welsh music. Opening the floodgates for four further releases within eighteen months and gaining rapid critical acclaim and extensive radio plays on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru, BBC Radio 6 and Amazing Radio.
Their latest single ‘Gartref‘ is the sound of a band stretching and exploring hidden parts of their creative process as a unit. Driven by their musical instinct and written off the cuff in the studio during recording, it displays a clear indication of where the band is headed next on their musical journey. Taking influence from ‘The Scream’ era Siouxsie and the Banshees and the metallic desolation of Public Image Ltd ‘Metal Box’, ‘Gartref’ boldly states that they are not scared to explore a darker, moodier musical pallet. You get a feel for the Velvets, Patti Smith, the brash pop of the Gorillas, the elastic bass of The Cure and so much more in Adwaith’s sound, but eventually all you can hear is Adwaith, the fresh sound redefining Welsh music for a new generation.
