It’s our 10 year anniversary this year, pretty hard to believe sometimes. What a trip it’s been!
We’re feeling excited & contemplative & ready to mark this special occasion with a beautiful new release. Available from today, on presale is a 10 year double album edition of A Balloon called Moaning.
This was our first EP, written a decade ago by Rhyds and I in North Wales & just before we met the beautiful soul that is Mr Thomas.
The double album will include the 2009 version (re-mastered for Vinyl) plus a newly recorded acoustic Welsh Language version Y Falŵn Drom.
It’s been a really reflective studio session; returning to the old recordings & transforming them into these beautiful stripped back, intimate versions. It’s exciting hearing them in the Welsh language because now they have new life too & we love exploring that bilingual side of TJF .
For those of you who like vinyl, you’re in for a treat.
Double coloured vinyl, re-mastered, with lyrics.
1000 copies only of the vinyl & the CD
To celebrate this release, we’ve put some UK & North American dates on the calendar this winter. The “Ten Years Floating tour” will kick off in the UK and continue through to Los Angeles on December 21st, 2019.
UK dates will be announced on Thursday so keep checking back for more info.
The insanely talented Bryde will join us on all North America dates, hwre for great music.
In CARDIFF, WALES we’re launching Gwyl Aruthrol/ Formidable Fest a mini festival at The Tramshed.
We see this event as a lovely opportunity for us to invite some bands to play in Wales, in front of an audience that otherwise, might not get to see them. That, and having a bill that promotes Welsh language acts and bands from Wales; just a really inclusive night of great music.
We’ll be doing 2 shows that night, one short acoustic Welsh set & the other full electric.
Full line up to be announced, you’ve guessed it on Thursday. It’s going to be a really special night, so please think about joining us so we can make it the first of many.
for reading our news & more importantly thank you for a very special
& memorable 10 years. Here’s to many more.
Ritzy, Rhydian & Matt X
