about

Recorded in a bonkers-remote Welsh studio accessible only by 4x4 (or sturdy hiking boot), under the tutelage of Owen Powell (ex-Catatonia) with Tim Lewis (Julian Cope, Spiritualized) at the controls.

Ten titty-tinglingly terrific tunes, from the upbeat Hedd Nod to the epic DNA, make up a brilliant album you don't need to speak Welsh to enjoy.

“Brilliantly blends a gentler side with upbeat blasts – Howl Griff are stepping up in the ranks of their predecessors, the Super Furry Animals” - BBC Wales website

“A breezy collection of guitar-pop nuggets, and very fine they are too. Growly lustiness and angelic harmonies... think Grand Prix-era Teenage Fanclub given a tantalising Taff twist. A Welsh Brian Wilson” - Clash magazine

“Crisp, chiming guitars and sweet harmonies make Howl Griff and his band impossible to resist. Hints of psychedelia drift through the songs. Whether Griff sings in English or Welsh, he strikes a universal chord” - Palo Alto Daily News

“A rich melodious sound, gorgeous sunshine melodies, strange yet beguiling. One of the best debuts of 2008. Buy it” - Electric Roulette

“Guitar-led, harmony-laden, anthemic… like the B-52s jousting with the Super Furries and the Beach Boys. Impressive” - Liverpool Daily Post

“Gorgeous guitar pop which has a lovely, loose, vaguely 60s feel about it” - The Last Post

“Blending the psychedelia of The Byrds with the modern AOR of The Raconteurs and drenched in lush harmonies, Howl Griff have created a unique West (Wales) Coast sound that ranks alongside the Super Furry Animals and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci” - The Joy Collective
