Adwaith are a Welsh language indie rock band from Carmarthen, South West Wales featuring Gwenllian Anthony (bass), Hollie Singer (vocals, guitar) & Heledd Owen (drums). Adwaith released their debut single ‘Pwysau’ and album Melyn in 2016 and released follow-up album Bato Mato in 2022. In a historic first, the band became the first act to win the Welsh Music Prize twice over, and now have three headline tours, an acclaimed Glastonbury set and Manic Street Preachers and IDLES support slots under their belts. Adwaith might be a band with clear roots set down in Wales – but looking towards the future, they’re now keenly focused on taking the language worldwide.
