Estrons means ‘aliens’ or ‘strangers’ in Welsh and this band of misfits may at times seem very far removed from any particular scene because they make music their own way, when they like, how they like.

Their forthcoming single Make A Man (released 4th December) premiered on Gigwise and you can stream it now via the band’s Soundcloud page.


Make A Man not only presents the band’s dynamic indie sound, the sentiment behind the song is just as strong and meaningful with the idea of female objectification turned on its head. “It’s the story of a heterosexual female’s battle between desiring a man, whilst simultaneously finding herself having little respect for his self-important ego and misogynistic attitude towards women. She retaliates by objectifying him herself,” explains singer Taliesyn Källström. In a time when female pop stars are shouting out about the same subject matter yet presenting themselves as sex objects regardless, Estrons are the real deal. They write about sexual dominance, belonging, divorce, self doubt… themes that matter to them and they write about them with passion and truth. They sing in English and Welsh, sometimes flitting between the two depending on the feel of the song.

Estrons met after a chance encounter in 2012 on a beach in Aberystwyth. Although the core members consist of Taliesyn Källström (vocals) and Rhodri Daniel (guitar), the band are actually a collection of people that come and go, all strangers who have one sole purpose and common denominator – to make great music that says something.

Last year singer Taliesyn gave birth to her son Björn and toured Wales within a month of his birth. The band’s video for ‘Aliens’ features Taliesyn breast feeding. A subject that has received much attention over the last year yet Estrons approach all subject matter with ease and a good sense of humour.

The band have already played the length and breadth of their home country and festivals such as Swn Festival andFestival no. 6. BBC Radio WalesAdam Walton and Bethan Elfyn and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens are also huge supporters but the band are ready to take their sound and present it to the world, flying the flag for Wales, the UK and for anyone who loves music with balls.

Make A Man is released via Gofod Records Ltd on 4th December 2015
