Track Of The Day: Aderyn – ‘Silver Screen’

‘Silver Screen’, the second single from Welsh artist Aderyn, is an anthem for anyone who spent their youth messily falling in and out of love, and in and out of nightclubs.

Having drummed in grunge bands since she was sixteen, ‘Silver Screen’ sees Aderyn fuse her lo-fi roots with a real pop sensibility. The result is irresistible! A real nostalgia trip, it’s reminiscent of the kind of brilliant, alt ’90s pop tunes that blared from teen movie soundtracks and high school sleepovers. And the jangly, indie-pop guitars and catchy hooks make this feel just as playlist friendly.

Yet while ‘Silver Screen’ is unashamedly poppy, there’s real melancholy to Aderyn’s vocals and her lyrics that give it a rawness and a depth. I can’t wait to hear what more she can do.

WATCH: Thallo – ‘I dy Boced’

Gentle, soothing sounds and startling visuals come together on ‘I Dy Boced’, the latest release from Welsh artist Thallo. Premiered on Welsh blog Y.Selar last week, the songwriter’s talent for creating sounds that are easy on the ear shines through on her new single.

Roughly translated as ‘In Your Pocket’, Thallo’s new song is a fusion of archaic lore and personal experience, mixing elements of jazz, folk and electronica. Accompanied by a six-piece band and their celestial instrumentation, Thallo sings her pretty lyrics in both the Welsh and English language.

“Described as “a paradoxically bittersweet rose-tinted fantasy” ‘I Dy Boced’ is an intriguing release from an intriguing newcomer. Watch the video for the single below, and follow Thallo on Facebook for more updates.
