Cardiff indie-rock trio Mellt have revealed their new single “Diwrnod Arall“.
The track features on their forthcoming second full-length album ‘Dim Dwywaith‘, due out on October 27 via Clwb Music. Get it here.
‘Diwrnod Arall‘ (‘Another Day‘) finds the band taking a despairing look at where technological developments have brought us.
“Does dim synnu bod e’n anodd anwybyddu / Y teclyn yn dy law sy’n gwrando ar ti nawr (No wonder it’s hard to ignore / The device in your hand is listening to you now),” guitarist/vocalist Glyn Rhys-James sings atop a rangy, winking instrumental.
“It sounds quite serious when we say [things like that], but I think it is littered with quite funny lines as well, and things that kinda take the edge off of it,” he says. “We don’t pretend to have all the answers to all the problems that we talk about. But I think there’s this element of humour that brings it down to earth a bit more.”
UPDATE 07/21: The band have now shared the single’s accompanying video. Watch it below.
Formerly winning prizes such as Welsh Language Album of the Year in 2018, the band is composed of childhood friends, Ellis Walker on bass and vocals, Glyn Rhys-James on guitar and vocals, and Jacob Hodges on drums.
