9Bach

‘Lisa Jęn’s ethereal voice still swoops beguilingly over Martin Hoyland’s expansive arrangements, fusing harps, dulcimers and guitars with dub beats, loops and pounding bass… ‘Yr Olaf’ sounds like Kate Bush conducting a Druidic ceremony.’ Uncut

‘…Anian is an altogether stunning and engrossing album of depth and diversity which touches the listener’s head, heart and soul. Never forgetting its roots, yet grounded in the present, Anian looks set to become an essential part of a lot of people’s soundtrack to a brighter future – and deservedly so.’ Folk Radio


9Bach formed in 2005 thanks to a chance meeting between Welsh singer-songwriter Lisa Jên (also known for her collaborative work with Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys) and English guitarist Martin Hoyland. With their unmistakable sound of Welsh language vocals shimmering alongside swamp guitar, harp, rhythm section and a subtle use of technology, 9Bach have been widely credited with giving a new voice to Welsh song. Their second album, Tincian, was described by The Line of Best Fit as ‘ripped through with transcendence; a brooding melancholy as much as a gossamer dreaminess’, and was voted Best Album at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Awards by the public.

Their latest album, Anian, is a soulful, brooding record whose songs take a critical look at the world in which we live. While Tincian commemorated stories from the past, Anian explores more contemporary themes.
