Tir Ha Mor


Gwenno has a new album out soon and this song/single Tir Ha Mor is a lovely way to promote it. Lots of little melodic touches, organs and synths pushed along by insistent drums and topped with her sing-song vocals (in Cornish). The song was inspired by a trip to St Ives and the Cornish abstract landscape artist Peter Lanyon.



Gwenno's last album was a psychedelic/motorik joy sung mostly in Welsh. One of the songs, Chwyldro, was remixed by our friend Andrew Weatherall in fine, wigged out, lengthy style.

Really looking forward to Gwenno's new album. This tune sounds a lot poppier than the last album though. I hope the rest of the record won'[t be quite as sugary.

Cornish sounds a lot like Welsh in places - it is after all based on the same language and really just a different dialect.

Not heard that remix before, it's rather splendid. Great, another album to add to my ever increasing list!

Gwenno is new to me but this song and your comments are the reasons to investigate for more. Thanks for introducing Adam.
