Adwaith tap into their bedrock on new single ‘Addo’.
The Carmarthen band took home the Welsh Music Prize last year, scooping the gong with their outstanding album ‘Bato Mato’. While that record leans on some of their most abstract impulses, the trio’s next step brings them closer to their foundations.
Started in their bedrooms, new single ‘Addo’ was finished at the Black Bay Studios in the Outer Hebrides, and boasts a Welsh legend on guitar. A surging piece of grunge-leaning musicality, the song is reminiscent of everyone from the Breeders to Liz Phair via bar italia, or even those stunning Hole records.
Additional guitar comes from Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield, who adds a different form of energy to Adwaith’s work.
The Welsh word for promise, ‘Addo’ is “about relationships in life that drain you…”
“It’s about caring deeply for someone self destructive who doesn’t care about themselves, and how when you’re involved in these relationships, it distorts your view of the world and the people around you.”
Tune in now.
