“Wedi Blino” is accompannied by a Eilir Pierce-directed video, and follows their February lead outing “ETO”.
Adwaith said of the new release, “We wanted to create a big indie pop song that has a melancholy feel to it. It’s about being worried that life is going too fast or the worries of a relationship, the overwhelming feeling that you’re not good enough and that you are the reason things aren’t working out.”
“The concept of the video is all about anxiety, feeling detached from the world, feeling like you’re the problem always,” Adwaith added. “All these emotions that are very apparent in your early 20’s. We worked with Eilir Pierce to create this video as we wanted it to be more dramatic and heartfelt than our other videos.”
Bato Mato is inspired by the band’s trip to Siberia, and shares its name with their guide Bato Mato. It’ll follow their 2018 debut album Melyn, which won the 2019 Welsh Music Prize.
The album was largely recorded at Giant Wafer studios in Llandrindod Wells, and saw them reunite with Melyn producer Steffan Pringle (Estrons, Boy Azooga).
“Wedi Blino” is out now. Adwaith’s Bato Mato album will follow on 1 July via Libertino. They’ll play London’s Moth Club on 5 July. Visit dice.fm for tickets.

Yn dilyn melodiau ewfforic y sengl gyntaf 'ETO', mae ‘Wedi Blino’ yn troi’r fuzz i fyny a’n cloddio’n ddyfnach i or-bryder yr ugeiniau cynnar. Bydd Bato Mato, ail record hir-ddisgwyliedig y band, allan Gorffennaf 1af ar Libertino. “O’n ni eisiau creu can indie-pop fawr ond melancolaidd” meddai’r band. “Mae hi am boeni fod bywyd yn mynd yn rhy gyflym neu boeni am berthynas, y teimlad nad wyt ti’n ddigon da ac mae ti yw’r rheswm nad yw pethau yn gweithio mas”
Following on from the soaring melodies of euphoric opening single 'ETO', latest cut 'Wedi Blino' cranks up the fuzz and digs deeper into the anxieties of your early 20's. Their eagerly anticipated sophomore album Bato Mato, due 1st July via Libertino. "We wanted to create a big indie pop song that has a melancholy feel to it" say the band. "It's about being worried that life is going too fast or the worries of a relationship, the overwhelming feeling that you're not good enough and that you are the reason things aren't working out."
English translation of ‘Wedi Blino’ lyrics:
I'm tired, I feel like life is running away, running away
The smell of anxiety, suffocates me it's so hard to breathe, to breathe
Maybe I'm the problem, maybe I'm the reason you're awake in the night
When I'm with you it doesn't feel like it should, every day, I'm not free
Look at me with your golden eyes, every time you want me, just say the word
