Gwenno is ready to share her second album “Le Kov” and the project is entirely written in Cornish. She shares the first single: the lovely indie pop track “Tir Ha Mor”.
Don’t try to understand the lyrics of Gwenno‘s new single “Tir Ha Mor” except if you master the art of Cornish, a survival of Britain’s lesser-known Brythonic language. For her new album “Le Kov”, the artist decided to use this language from beginning to end. Nevertheless, as proven on the first single, the final rendition sounds fresh and modern, a bit like if a fairy or an elf was singing some indie pop. The whole album is set to explore the individual and collective subconscious and the myths and drolls of Cornwall. “Le Kov” is an artistic document more than a concept album. In any case, the first single “Tir Ha Mor”, is a lovely and heady indie pop track. After all, maybe Gwenno is actually a bewitching elf…
