‘Feathers’ – single by Carw out this Friday (+stream link)
Dim the dancefloor lights as Welsh electro-jangle maestro releases a cut of low-key electro-pop majesty…
Pulse-quickening, infectiously irresistible electro-indie-pop tiptoes from the DIY studio set-up of Cardiff-based singer-songwriter Carw, as he releases his third single, FEATHERS via BLINC Records on Friday 28 September 2018 to prelude his anticipated, debut LP, Skin Shed.

There’s always a summit at the top of every glistening mountain slope and Feathers provides a breathtaking view from the album’s peak (released Fri 12 October 2018), bringing Carw’s pop sensibilities rushing to the surface of his understated songcraft. Carw’s lo-fi masterpiece (co-produced with Llion Roberston, producer of Gruff Rhys’ Babelsberg) has already offered two, radio-charming singles in Lanterns and Lovers with repeated plays on BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio Wales.
Carw, Welsh for ‘deer’, emerges from a world of music, art and literature with a determinedly focused and self-initiated project influenced by 1980s electronic pop, the expansive dream worlds painted by Cocteau Twins’ guitars and the sun-setting grooves of Balearic House. Carw’s creative vision has been to cherry-pick nature’s influence, having grown up in rural isolation, whilst suffusing deep breaths of clean air with the dust kicked-up in the vibrant cycle of city life.
Under his real name of Owain Griffiths, Carw’s previous collaborations and live appearances have been as part of Cotton Wolf, Eugene Capper & Rhodri Brooks, Winter Villains and the electronic synth trio, Hlemma.
