Clwb Ifor Bach (Isaf / Downstairs)

Hailing from Dolgellau, North Wales, Welsh language indie troupe Sŵnami deliver bright shining pop melodies and cheery, catchy hooks. Since forming the group in 2011, band members Ifan Davies [vocals, guitar], Ifan Ywain [guitar], Gruff Jones [synthesizers], Gerwyn Murray [bass] and Lewis Williams [drums] have proved themselves to be one of the most proficient Welsh language bands on the scene. It was off the back of their self-titled debut album, released in 2015, that Sŵnami’s journey really began – winning Welsh Language Album Of The Year; being nominated for The Welsh Music Prize; representing Radio 1 at Eurosonic Festival in the Netherlands, as well as performing a session at the legendary Maida Vale studios. With album number two on the horizon, it’s clear that Sŵnami are still drawing powerful currents on the Welsh music scene and beyond.
