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.
