YNYS Set To Release New Single ‘Mae’n Hawdd’ 26th July Via Libertino Records
‘Caneuon’, the debut single by Ynys, succeeded in establishing this new project by Dylan Hughes, former member of Race Horses, as one of the most exciting sounds breaking out of a rejeuvenated and confident Welsh music scene.
His new single was originally written about 5 years ago following a midnight coastal walk. This was the first song he had recorded for years, and it sets a cinematic backdrop of the midnight moon and mist over the rolling waves.
Featuring long time friend Mali Llywelyn on vocals, the song was recorded with a mixture of 80s sequencers, 70s string machines and melancholic harmonies.
Lyrically Dylan created a nostalgic black and white movie scene set in West Wales in 2013!
The single is such a dreamy projection from the artist. A hazy and infectious new track, layered and textured soundscapes of sonic synths, paving the way for the contrasting vocals that create the feeling of dialogue- all of which showcase the wonderfully atmospheric deliverance. Combining elements of storytelling taking the listener afar and the refined and skillful pop production.
The themes of soul searching, transition, travel and isolation feature, interspersed with an uplifting chorus. It is about letting go and understanding that everything is easy when you know how.
Ynys has a full summer and autumn on the road playing at different venues and festivals including Sŵn Festival in his adopted home city of Cardiff.
