Bendith share 4-track EP on Aficionado

Bendith
Via Juno

Thanks to the hard-to-define nature of the Balearic sound that inspired it, Aficionado Recordings can pretty much release whatever they like – providing, of course, that it fits their hazy, horizontal and loved-up ethos. It’s also why they can release this surprise EP from Welsh “super-group” Bendith, whose five tracks explore the more pastoral, string-drenched end of the folk spectrum. Via a range of tracks built around acoustic guitar motifs, lilting strings, twinkling piano lines and Welsh-language vocals, Bendith deliver an EP as breezy and beautiful as anything Aficionado has released to date. It’s undeniably traditional in feel – there’s not a synthesizer or drum machine in sight – but that only adds to its alluring nature.    

Bendith EP is out now via Aficionado Recordings – buy from Juno or Bandcamp.
