Adwaith is a band going places. Hollie, Gwenllian and Heledd from Carmarthen are producing some fantastic bilingual songs, with clever lyrics and catchy tunes. In June 2022, they performed at Glastonbury on the BBC Introducing stage, wowing audiences with their unique take. Their second album, Bato Mato, won the Welsh Music Prize in 2022, with songs like ‘Eto’ and ‘Wedi Blino’ – and their banger of a song “Addo” was just released at the end of 2023. I can’t recommend them highly enough!
Foxxglove is a singer and songwriter from Ferndale, who just released her debut EP, “The Chaos”. With such an emotive voice that takes you on a journey from her upbringing in the south Wales valleys to moving to Cardiff and even heartbreaks. This artist is one to keep on your radar for sure. To get you started we recommend her song “Paradwys”, in collaboration with Luxembourgian artist Eädyth.
Sage Todz – A rapper and producer from Wrexham, rapping rapid-fire lyrics in Welsh and English. He’s leading a new wave of Welsh language hip-hop, with song like “O HYD” in collaboration with FAW for Wales world-cup playoffs in 2022. He’s now collaborating with notable Welsh artist such as Mace the Great and Luke RV to bring in the new wave of Welsh hip-hop and rap into 2024. We recommend “Deg I Deg” as a must listen song, want to give a special shoutout to “Teithio Cymru” a Welsh rap song he features on.
