YNYS Shares New Single “There’s Nothing the Sea Doesn’t Know”

Self-titled debut album due 4th November on Libertino Records

UK live dates announced inc. London headline show on 14th January

Following the announcement of their self-titled debut album in November, YNYS shares new single “There’s Nothing the Sea Doesn’t Know”, a string-laced, nostalgic song about returning to your hometown.

YNYS will be released 4th November on Libertino Records -preorder here.

YNYS is the solo outing of Welsh songwriter Dylan Hughes, previously known for psychedelic pop band Race Horses. His debut full-length is a bold return, the album’s ambitious sound palette journeying from Big Star power pop to Beach House via cinematic strings and Italo disco synthesizers from 1981, sung in Welsh and English.

A lot of the songs wrestle with Hughes’ move back to Aberystwyth from Cardiff; home from home, city to rural, the idea of thriving urban activity, and the stillness of a rural seaside hometown. “Moving on but trying to get back to somewhere,” he shares.

Ynys returns with this intimate exploration, proudly capturing this raw journey that boasts expressive twists and this dramatic surge of intensity carried by the stunning strings. Ynys has unleashed this immersive ensemble filled with melodic motifs and this touching movement. As you fixate on the harrowing lyrics, the touching words are elevated and exhilarated by the orchestral upheaval, and this rich tonality.

There’s Nothing The Sea Doesn’t Know” is a deeply compelling arrangement that will floor the listener, Ynys has shared this sincere arrangement that is indisputably affecting.
