Welsh artist Gwenno – former Pipettes front-woman, Gwenno Saunders – is releasing her second album, Le Kov, on March 3 via Heavenly Recordings.
Le Kov is the follow-up to Y Dydd Olaf, Gwenno’s spellbinding debut solo album, which intricately weaved mixture of moods and textures, soft-edged synths, blissed out Krautrock and Motorik rhythms. Ahead of the hotly anticipated record, shared a video for its first single, ‘Tir Ha Mor’. The first single follows a similarly sublime formula, sung in Cornish, it is lush, sweeping, sparkling and brilliant. The video features Gwenno singing and dancing, and reflects ‘Tir Ha Mor’ colourful psychedelic leanings.
The album, Le Kov is sung entirely in Cornish and translates to “land and sea”, and while it has an awful lot to live up to if it’s reach the heady heights of Y Dydd Olaf but judging by ‘Tir Ha Mor’ at least, Gwenno is on the right track.
