Earlier this year 9Bach released their long awaited follow-up album Tincian via Real World Records which we featured as one of our Albums of the Month for May (review here). This month on November 17th 9Bach will release their Tinc EP which will feature four leftfield re-imaginings from their album along with a re-recording of Bwythn Fy Nain which was the opening track of their 2009 eponymous debut album.
We have a premiere track to share with you today – Wedi Torri gets the subtle mix treatment from Sir Doufus Styles (Cate Le Bon, Super Furry Animals, The Flaming Lips). That slow brooding quality remains which Simon touched on in his review capturing the disquieting sense of being knocked off kilter by what you have witnessed. Listen to it below:
The album has provided them with their most successful year to date which also saw them perform to festival crowds at End Of The Road Festival, Green Man, WOMAD as well as a festival in Vietnam. Those that missed the chance to catch them live will now get another chance with their November / December mini UK tour (dates below).
