Winner of the Welsh Music Prize in 2015, Gwenno Saunders is a sound artist, DJ and radio presenter. 

Political, feminist and passionate about the preservation of the Welsh and Cornish languages, she is charting her own defiant course and producing brilliant music that’s free of commercial shackles.

Her second album Le Kov is one of 2018’s most beautiful and stirring records, swirling with ancient myths, modern themes and retro-futuristic synth lines tumbling over Krautrock and pop rhythms.

“Sitting somewhere between Air, Serge Gainsbourg and Broadcast, Gwenno conjures up ten atmospheric tracks filled with driving beats, bubbling synths and clouds of reverb, over which she sails gorgeous melodies…. Le Kov casts a lovely musical spell.”- Q Magazine ★★★★

“There is shared ground with Jane Weaver, Broadcast and Cate Le Bon, but Saunders marks out her own terrain… An immersive statement of identity and survival in a fractured world, catching the light between the ancient and the modern.”- MOJO Magazine ★★★★

‘One of the most ageless and accessible pop records of 2018, via languages practically no one understands. Pure stealth’ – Record Collector ★★★★
