New Album From Oblong Out Now!

Following on from the modestly titled ‘Briliant…Gwd’ here’s the even more modest and slightly delusionally titled album ’hollalluog’.

The band have again recorded the album themselves in various rooms and outside buildings around the Llanelli area.

Ten brand new tracks and bonus instrumental track. There’s still the weird and wonderful mixture of inspiration for the songs. 

Band line-up Andrew (guitar & voice), Rob (bass guitar & voice) and Hyws (drums).

"Spiky, joy-injections of guitars in our ear-holes” – Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales

“Top tune ‘Sdim Ots Da Fi’” – Rhys Mwyn, BBC Radio Cymru

“Briliant…gwd” - David R Edwards

Having existed in a nascent form for years, oblong finally emerged in 2016 as possibly Llanelli’s only bi-lingual post-punk band. Singing in Welsh and English, they take a skewed look at subjects such as zombies and phone hackers. Their sound is raw and unadorned - BBC’s Adam Walton once described it as ‘Fuzzed up shed skronk’. Their 2017 self-recorded album, “Briliant…Gwd” attracted fulsome praise from music blogs and had repeated airplay on stations across Wales, England, Europe and North America. Their live set is uncompromisingly, punchy and compact - blink and they may have already left the stage.
