Following on from 2018’s bewitching ‘Le Kov’, Welsh songwriter Gwenno has returned with her third solo album and second predominantly in Cornish. Once more marrying aspects of psychedelic, baroque pop, and the ethereal, ‘Tresor’ on the whole takes the listener on an entirely personal journey, a nearly lost language leading us on a journey of self. Except for two electronic led numbers that become more of a slog than a celebration, Gwenno has once again married the otherworldly with the primal with supreme effect. Another contemporary Cornish treat.
