y niwl Undegsaith / Undegchwech (7", £3.95)
Double A side 7 inch limited to 300 copies only. Blink and you'll miss the second single from North Wales post-surf quartet Y Niwl. Released ahead of the vinyl issue of their debut album, 'Undegsaith' clocks in at just over a minute while the eerie "Moogs being mashed by manic Munsters" (NME) of 'Undegchwech' makes for a slower, swaggering stomper. 'Undegsaith' expands on the edgier, louder side of their style, in a 60 second crescendo of grungy surf. "...a classic surf beat surrounded by layers of increasing intensity..." (ARTROCKER) // Fresh off touring as Gruff Rhys' backing and support band, this is their first release since last year's acclaimed self-titled debut album. As well as spreading the surf across the world, Y Niwl have been making waves back home as well, with their track 'Undegpedwar' being chosen as this season's theme music for the BBC's Football Focus programme, and they're keeping themselves busy too, with a new album on the way. Produced by long-time collaborator and producer of the band, David Wrench, 'Undegsaith/Undegchwech' is an exhilirating progression of their debut album, combining old-school surf-punk energy with new ideas. You'll find yourself coming back again and again for your fix of Y Niwl's razor-edged Snowdonian surf.
