Ymbelydredd by Gwenno
As you know, I love The Pipettes. While they are taking a break, Gwenno is releasing a new EP! Yay!
The good news is that the single is really good. There is no bad news, but it isn't sung in English. That's right, it is sung in Welsh.
You see, the Saunders sisters (Gwenno and Ani) are from Wales. And Gwenno was already a Welsh singer before she joined The Pipettes. She had a song called "Vodya" in 2003.
The Pipettes: Ani and Gwenno
Anyhoo ... her new song is very chill ... dreamy and beautiful. I love it! And even if you don't know the words, you can just sort of make them up as you go along. I've done this before with Bananarama's song in Swahili "Aie A Mwana" and Alcazar's Swedish song "Grillvagn."
The song and EP will be available on August 6 via her label's website at www.peski.co.uk, as well as iTunes.
