Breichiau Hir announce new double A side single on Libertino Records
To move from the caustic, the abrasive, the aggressive to a pensive sadness that eventually brake’s into a cacophony of blistering chords with such ease is a testament to Breichiau Hir’s growing confidence. The last 12 month of releases has shown a band forever forging their own individual path.
The Cardiff 6 piece are set to astonish with the release of their double A side single. ‘Yn Dawel Bach’ / ‘Saethu Tri’ out 20th September via Libertino Records.
‘Yn Dawel Bach / Saethu Tri’ is their new Double A side single, it’s also the band’s most melodic songs to date. These songs combine Breichiau Hir’s love for loud noise and soft sad moments. Emphatic sounds and melancholic atmosphere.
‘Yn Dawel Bach / Saethu Tri’ belong together, they come from the same emotional and creative place. As Steffan Dafydd the bands lyricist and vocalist explains:
“In Saethu Tri, I outline the dread or regret that can overcome me and how I’m never totally sure how to deal with it. I don’t dramatise it in the song, I kept it matter of factly and tried to convey the numbness and dullness that comes with it. It’s wistful and sombre.”
“Yn Dawel Bach is nearly a response to this dread I talk about in Saethu Tri. It basically points out that these waves of panic can overwhelm you whenever it wishes. It can come crashing at you wherever you are. It doesn’t ask permission, it just arrives, unannounced and uninvited.”
Yn Dawel Bach starts as a truly emotive track before intensity hits with the powerful force of the band. A pure, captivating track which hooks the listener from the get-go. The track is bold, abrasive, yet utterly melodic and moving at the same time.
These frail emotional landscapes the songs move through are beautifully conveyed. Calm verses that ease the listener into a false sense of security and control before a wall of sound blissfully brakes into the chorus.
The single will be available on limited edition cassette tape and Breichiau Hir will celebrate the release with a launch night at The Dojo, Kings Road Yard, Cardiff on September 28th presented by the great guys of Tone Deaf Creatures.
