WORLDCUB – ‘Here Comes The Moonshadow’ Single Release
Worldcub, who previously worked under the moniker ‘CaStLeS’, have been busy producing a followup to their 2016 site-specific themed debut album ‘Fforesteering’, to which The Guardian’s Paul Lester stated “It is simultaneously gentle and powerful." (‘New Band of the Week’, The Guardian, December 2016). Their debut album was very warmly received, with Gigwise proclaiming..."Do yourself a favour and find a peaceful spot to listen and discover this new band. It won’t be long until the Eryri landscape unravels before you” and Drowned in Sound declared “Although it's still only early days in the band's fledgling career, their potential is enormous. Today North Wales, tomorrow the world!”
The follow up album, which has been recorded at their home studio in Ceunant, North Wales is due for release in the first quarter of 2020. The band lift their first single from the album on the 4th of October, the immediately catchy and blissful ‘Here Comes the Moonshadow’ will be accompanied by a video produced by ERFYL Productions and also a Welsh language b-side track titled 'Hel y Hadau'.
The band is piloted by brothers Cynyr and Dion Hamer and have recently been joined by new members Carwyn Ginsberg (Hippies V Ghosts / Fauna Twin) on guitar and Dion Wyn Jones (from record braking band Alffa) on bass. This single release campaign coincided with the band's first international live performance at BreakOut West festival, Canada in association with FOCUS Wales and help from PRS Foundation’s International Showcase Fund. The band played two showcases, one to a full capacity ‘Roundhouse’ venue and also met with an indigenous clan to talk about the struggles indigenous languages have had to endure, the band joined in with their ‘Smudging’ ceremony and played some music with them.
