TUNE Trwbador - Breakthrough ft. Essa
Trwbador (featuring Essa) - 'Breakthrough' IMPACT DATE: Mon 2nd June 2014.
TRWBADOR (Welsh girl/boy duo of Owain Gwilym and Angharad Van Risjwijk) team up with underground legend on first single from sophomore album.
BREAKTHROUGH is a harptronic future bass track featuring the vocals of UK Hip Hop heavy weight ESSA aka Yungun. Inspired by Welsh folk music, minimalism and eastern european hip hop, this track sees the boy/girl duo from rural Carmarthenshire grow from last years Welsh Music Prize nominated debut album, described by Q magazine as “A magic debut” and Huw Stephens as “A thing of real beauty”.
All TRWBADOR music is released to the World via their very own cottage industry label Owlet Music. The duos songs have been soundtracking advert campaigns world wide over the last 2 years and have been heard performed live across the UK’s biggest festivals.
The instrumental version of BREAKTHROUGH has leaked on to Welsh airwaves where it is currently being championed by BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru DJs. This support is sure to multiply with the presentation of the single version of the track containing ESSAs show stealing vocal performance.
BREAKTHROUGH ft ESSA will be available on 7” in record stores up and down the country as well as online download platforms and from the band and label websites. This is the first TRWBADOR 7” on Owlet Music and a fitting follow up to the 2013 Great Pop Supplement release of the TRWBADOR track ‘Mountain’.
2014 is gathering pace for the duo with their second album set for release in late Summer along with another single following in September, before a UK tour in late October and a number of exciting announcements that will see the two progress to the next level.
