Ynys is a new project by Dylan Hughes, ex Race Horses and Radio Luxembourg. The songs of Ynys combine Dylan’s melodic gift and adventurous playful song craft into a rich collection of melancholic harmonies and off-kilter psychedelic pop songs that mirror the vulnerability, yet assured, classicism of alternative touchstones such as Velvet Underground, Elliot Smith, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci and Teenage Fan Club.
His debut single ‘Caneuon’ (Songs) is released on Libertino records(Adwaith, Accu, Silent Forum) on the 26th of April, is the first material recorded and released by Dylan since his days in Race Horses and it’s been worth the wait.
With an open and big chorus that envelopes the listener into his world; ‘Caneuon’ is inviting and unforgettable. It’s a hymn to the power of an ‘unexpected song’ saved from the past and it overflows with longing for the pure joy that music brings.
