Ep. 44 – Adwaith

This week, a special interview with a band that I’ve always wanted to sit and have a proper natter with.

Hollie and Gwenllian from Adwaith join me in the bedroom to discuss their latest single “Gartref” which will be released this coming Friday (13th July)

PLUS all the GOSS on their debut album (including it’s title!) which comes out later this year.

This is a real chance to hear quite candidly about a band you must’ve seen before!
