Welsh duo

Vocable (Anglais) - - Échos Brèves De Culture -

Two tee­nage rock mu­si­cians from ru­ral North Wales have be­come the first band to pass one mil­lion plays with a Welsh lan­guage song on the strea­ming ser­vice, Spo­ti­fy. Dion Jones and Sion Land, 18, whose band is cal­led Alf­fa, broke the re­cord with their song “Gwenwyn” (“Poi­son”). With this hit, the band ac­qui­red fans in the UK and the US as well as in coun­tries such as Bra­zil, Mexi­co and Po­land. “It’s real­ly weird to think people are lis­te­ning to our mu­sic all over the world. That’s a bit sca­ry, real­ly,” Dion Jones said, af­ter ack­now­led­ging how ama­zing the ex­pe­rience has been.
