Anian (live) 05:09


‘Ar y 9’ is an 8 track live album recorded during the band’s celebratory UK tour of 2019, in support of the 10th anniversary re-release of their debut album.

The concert features songs from each of their studio albums, 2010s ‘9Bach’, 2014s ‘Tincian’ and 2016s ‘Anian’, all available on Real World Records.

‘Ar y 9’ is the equivalent Welsh expression to the English “dressed up to the nines” and reflects the band's feeling after the addition of Andy Gangadeen to the line-up, who has brought an electronic element to the band’s sound, as well as his unique drumming style, first showcased on the tour, and now this live album.

Building on a deepened, almost ambient sound picture, the songs take you into the landscape and the emotions that it evokes. Music is a living thing, not a museum piece, and the way that 9Bach compose and perform reflect this. ... more
