Several Wolves

Released: 11th August 2014
Label: Owlet Music

‘Several Wolves’ is the second album from the incredibly talented Welsh duo Trwbador who, in 2013, gave us one of our albums of the year with their self titled debut which was rightfully nominated for the Welsh Music Prize. As soon as you press play on this follow up album it quickly becomes apparent that Trwbador will be sure to receive a successive nomination for the Welsh Music Prize in 2014.

‘Several Wolves’ is an album of so many glorious sounds that seem unique to Trwbador, I don’t think there is anyone currently out there creating music the way this band do. The album opens with ‘Side By Side’ a beautiful, hypnotic song with angelic melodies and vocals that will capture the listener's attention and imagination from the outset. ‘Start Your Car’ follows with the euphoric sound of a late night dance floor and ‘Breakthrough’ is, quite simply, mind blowing; you will be hanging intently on every lyric that is delivered by ESSA.

The album continues with one standout song after another including ‘Come To Me Tomorrow’ which contains some of the most beautiful vocals you will hear all year. This is such a sweet song which the listener will be sure not to forget in a hurry. ‘Blue Minds’ sees the band joining forces with Welsh legend Richard James, a combination which means this song could be nothing other than short of amazing. ‘Love and Folly’ provides the album with a perfect ending, highlighting everything and more that there is to love about this band; the way the music has been put together with such thought to complement the vocals clearly shows that Trwbador are a band who care about every sound they create.

Two albums in just over a year from Trwbador really has been a treat. This is a band full of creativity and imagination, and I only hope they continue to release amazing music with such frequency for a very long time to come.
