Not many people outside of Wales really know what the Welsh language sounds like, or have even heard many people speak it, but what better way to learn than through the incredibly infectious track from Heavenly Recordings newest artist Gwenno?

Inspired by Owain Owain's 1976 novel Y Dydd Olaf and its dystopian, robot filled world, Gwenno launches into sci-fi synths and glittery electronic sounds so bright that the stars glisten in the light of day. Although not many of us may be Welsh speaking, the language still fluently fluctuates between rhythmic verses and harmonised choruses, elevating Gwenno's vocals as well as intriguing us with her wonderful Welsh words. 

The politically driven album, Y Dydd Olaf is out 24 July via Heavenly Recordings.

You can stream the new track "Patriachaeth" below. Gwenno's upcoming UK shows can be found afterwards.
