Wales has produced a steady crop of exciting indie bands in recent times, top of the pile of course is a band who you should all know of my love for, The Joy Formidable. There are others too; Islet are one of the most compelling live bands around and Cut Ribbons have a dramatic, cohesive sound that deserves more success.
The latest Welsh band to come to my attention are Carmarthen quintet Tree of Wolves, who introduce a shimmering, summery slice of guitar-based prettiness on their new track "Half Light". There's a tight rhythm section throughout and the combination of dual-vocals, chiming guitars and big, bright melody does make you think of breathless, whirlwind noise produced by Cut Ribbons, that's definitely a good thing.
