ANKSTMUSIK are proud to announce the release of a brand new track from Welsh language music legends and perennial Peel favourites Datblygu. Following on from The Peel Sessions collection released earlier in 2008 and the recent press interest in magazines such as Plan B this 7″ single features a brand new track recorded in April by David R. Edwards and Pat Morgan.
The track was the first time the band had recorded in nearly fifteen years and is intended as a full stop on their legacy rather than a brand new start. The song recounts (over its brief ninety seconds) the turmoil and madness that engulfed the singer as the band fell apart in the mid nineties and the long road to recovery that resulted from the fallout.
It is a fragile and unsettling piece of music that has no real precedent in the Welsh music scene.
The b side features Bombstar – a track performed by singer Charlie Sharp especially chosen by Datblygu mainman David R. Edwards to complement the sparse and chilly A side.
