Finishing off this great week of music we have the only and only Chroma with their brand new single ‘Weithiau’ (Sometimes)
‘Weithiau’ (Sometimes) is an emotionally powerful song that is one half of Chroma’s Double-A single ‘Weithiau / Caru Cyffuriau’. This is the group’s first release after joining the Libertino label. The songs were recorded live to capture the versatile and energetic sound of the Valleys trio by producer Kris Jenkins (Cate Le Bon, SFA, Gruff Rhys).
“‘Weithiau’ is about ending a relationship with someone that you love deeply. The process of coming to terms with the fact that the relationship doesn’t work, and putting your self first in that situation.” – Katie Hall, Chroma In perfect musical contrast to the sometimes melancholy ‘Weithiau’, ‘Caru Cyffuriau’ is a non-stop ‘in your face’ punk song about being a teenager in the South Wales Valleys.
“Caru Cyfffuriau is a song about being a naughty teenager in the valleys experimenting with drugs and sex because there’s not much else to do. I think there needs to be more stuff going on so young people don’t feel so isolated. We wanted to write a welsh language punk song that reflects young people’s lived experience today.” – Katie Hall, Chroma
