About the Artists

Cardiff sound artist, DJ, radio presenter and singer Gwenno creates sci-fi keyboard sounds wrapped in exquisite, echoed vocals. Her songs are almost entirely performed in Welsh with a deep melancholy and deceptively intricate arrangement of electronic sound, complimented beautifully with live instruments. Previously a member of Brighton-based conceptual pop band The Pipettes and more recently a member of durational performance sound art collective Canolfan Hamdden (Leisure Centre) alongside Y Pencadlys, Rhys Edwards and Pat Morgan of Datblygu, her songs have a strong political influence, spearheading the Welsh-language music movement.

Gwenno will be supported by new electropop innovators Pumarosa and Pixx. Newly signed to Chess Club Records and fronted by singer, guitarist, and Wonder Woman Isabel Munoz-Newsom, the 5-piece East London dance-rock band Pumarosa wowed the music world with their 2015 release ‘Priestess’. Pixx (Hannah Rodgers), starts the night off with her powerful electronic folk influence.
