Gwenno Saunders’s award-winning 2015 debut Y Dydd Olaf was comprised of songs in Welsh, with one in Cornish. This follow-up is exclusively dedicated to the latter language, which is spoken fluently by the artist. The lyrics are partly based on local legends of sunken cities, which have particular metaphorical weight when considering the implications of a dying language, set to suitably melancholy, sub-aquatic piano and synth arrangements. . There’s also a cover of local hero Aphex Twin’s Hy a Scullyas Lyf a Dhagrow, and a guest rap from Super Furry Animal Gruff Rhys.
