The Joy Formidable have announced the 3rd single in their Welsh language singles series, Aruthrol C, will be released this month. Pre-orders opened March 1st, but copies are still available. Aruthrol C includes a new track from the band, 'Y Garreg Ateb' as well as 'Ready to Run' from the Cardiff based band Bloom, and 'Isabelle' from the Swansea based band Heavy Petting Zoo. International shipping to the States is available, inexpensive at £5, and should be an afterthought for fans of the band. All orders will receive a digital download of 'Y Garreg Ateb'.
The Bloom track is a first time listen for me, but Heavy Petting Zoo is a long time Aimless Skylarking favorite. Listen to each below.
The band held a contest for the artwork for Aruthrol C. Submit your design, and they'd select a winner. Simple as that. The winning entry by Dovi Joy is seen at the top of this post, and is a fine entry, however, I will say I am gutted that my entry did not win. And for those who scrolled down this far and are curious, Plant Aur Solet translates to Solid Gold Kids in Welsh (I think).
