A stunning collection of multi-instrumental lullabies to the untamed landscapes of Snowdonia - the welsh four-piece's 2nd album reveals a masterpiece of sweeping instrumentation, soaring choirs & shimmering string sections.

The remarkable beauty of Uwch Gopa'r Mynydd (Above the Mountain Summit) is Led by the poetic heart & musical mind of Dilwyn Llwyd. their 2007 debut was famed for being mastered in the swimming pool studio of friends, Sigur Rós, who are the most obvious reference points here. All but one of the tracks (the stunning Word Song) is delivered in Welsh, causing non-native ears to drown in the simple melody of the words. Llwyd’s gentle brogue, delivered in restrained tones is set against shimmering backdrop of the band’s morning dew melodies, each unravelling slowly to reveal the most celestial of musical sensations.
