Introducing Adwaith – our new favourite menywod swnllyd (that’s Welsh loud women, in case you were wondering).
Signed to Cymru’s finest, Libertino Records, the all grrrl trio just released their debut double A-side single ‘Lipstick Cock’ (Red Lipstick) and ‘FEMME’, the former described as “a fully charged post punk anthem in the vain of The Slits at their most immediate, an anthem celebrating youth, androgyny and love. The flipside ‘FEMME’ on the other hand could quite easily have been a long lost single on Postcard Records or Cherry Red Records from the mid-80s.”
The BBC are loving their Adwaith, quite rightly, playing them on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio 6, and BBC Radio Cymru. Adwaith were introduced on the BBC Introducing stage at Latitude festival as the most exciting band from Wales in decades and will finish the summer on the Gorwelion /Horizons stage at Festival No 6. In the middle of all this activity, Adwaith have managed to record their debut album, and their label Libertino believe its ‘creatively ground breaking and will stand as one of the important albums from Wales alongside the works of Gorky Zygotic Mynci, Super Furry Animals and Gwenno.’
We just missed out on booking Adwaith for LOUD WOMEN Fest, but we promise we’ll get them on a London stage pronto.
