Huw Stephens is taking the Daily Download reins again this week as we present a five day Swn Festival takeover. The three-day weekender has basically any new band you need to know about playing at the end of this week (Oct 21st, 22nd, 23rd) – get full details on their site. For now, here’s Huw’s first two picks.
“Playing the NME Radar night along with Egyptian Hip Hop, Happy Birthday and Veronica Falls, the slacker-pop group come to Cardiff for the first time and we’re delighted to have them. Their short songs rule.”
The Vaccines – ‘Blow It Up’
“Crash.Disco! is 18 and from Bangor, North Wales. He crashed into our discos earlier this year with his ace techno-chip-tuned beats which are guaranteed to get even the most reliable heartbeat going wonky.”
Crash.Disco! – ‘Something Like This’
