Gwenno – ‘Y Dydd Olaf’ album review

Sci-fi meets funky industrial electronica

4 out of 5 stars

If you usually look to Cold War-era Europe for icy synth soundscapes and expect Welsh pop to be all twanging guitars and quirky romance, Gwenno Saunders is here to set you right. The Welsh-language debut by the former Pipettes frontwoman pairs luscious, breathy vocals and sci-fi themes with funky electronica and industrial clanks – the sound of the M4 meeting the autobahn.
