Having made a name for himself in Wales as a founder member of pop band Yr Ods and a member of Yucatan, Osian Howells begun releasing his own material on Blinc Records under the name OSHH. The music graduate from Star, Anglesey, has taken a new direction with his style of dark pop, and has released a string of singles on the label – All Mistakes, Lleisiau’n Galw and Dal i Frwydro – and another of his songs, Rhywbeth Gwell featuring on the Welsh language compilation O’r Nyth. He has recently been completing work on his eponymous debut album, recorded in the label’s own recording studio, Ironworks Studio in Llanllyfni, North Wales.

His live performances include festivals such as the Huw Stephens-curated Sŵn Festival in Cardiff, and Gŵyl Gardd Goll on Angelsey, with a live band consisting of Gwion Llewelyn (Villagers, Race Horses), Griff Lynch (Yr Ods), brother Guto Howells (Yr Eira) and Ioan Llewelyn.

OSHH released his debut album on Blinc on October 6th, 2017.

“With powerful vocals and swirling layers of impressive synth work, the debut album from Welsh artist OSHH acts as an excellent introduction to electronic music. Used To Fly displays an acute sense of melody and atmosphere, while Birds offers an inspirational and vivacious listen. Finally, Aflonyddu closes the album with sweeping theatrics. We are left with the sense that, while OSHH may be a newcomer in the field of modern electronic music, he has a bright future ahead of him”

A superb listen. Coming in hot straight from the school of modern electro-wizards such as LA Priest (Late Of The Pier), Jamie XX, Solid Gold and Will Wiesenfeld (Baths), OSHH is a stunningly woozy, softly beating work of gorgeous electronica with slightly darkened edges.
