A NIGHT of contemporary welsh Music with some of Wales’ leading bands at the moment – Yr Ods, Clinigol, Castro and Bromas. This gig is one not to be missed and is at the Ffwrnes, Llanelli on Friday, September 27.
‘Yr Ods’ are currently on tour promoting their brilliant new album ‘llithro’ and Clinigol are still riding the wave of success with their album ‘Discopolis’ . Supporting the main acts will be local bands ‘Castro’ and ‘Bromas’ who are busy making their mark on a national level.
Come on over for a night of rock, pop, punk and dance music!
Yr Ods are a five-piece pop band originally from the Bangor area of North Wales, now based in Cardiff. Singing bilingually in English and their mother-tounge of Welsh, Huw Stephens of Radio 1 has described Yr Ods as “a brilliant indie band from North Wales with sharpness, melodies and a natural flow that can make you blush”.
Yr Ods have been writing and performing for over 5 years. Their self-titled EP was released in 2010. After a successful 2010 which saw them make a string of well-received live performances including a second consecutive appearance in Glastonbury, Radio 1's Big Weekend, Camden Crawl and North Wales' very own Wakestock festival, they have spent 2011 writing and recording their first LP, 'Troi a Throsi', which was released in October 2011.
Joining Yr Ods will be Clinigol who were formed by brothers Geraint and Aled Pickard in Cardiff in 2005, they create perfect little pop songs in the Welsh language. They have released five singles: Eiliad (2006), Y Gwir (2007), Hufen Ia (2009), Swigod (2010) and Cyfrinach (2010). Their first album Melys (Sweet) was released in 2009. Their second album Discopolis (2012) is jam packed with pop, electronica and dance tracks, sung by some of Wales' biggest singing stars. It also features a bonus disk of acoustic and dance remixes making it the first double album by a single artist in the Welsh language EVER.
