I seriously love this tune, so I’m sharing it again, with its recently released music video, which I totally missed till now. UK alt rock band FJORDS released Sulwyn as a single on July 14 on Crookedman Records. The song and FJORDS style reminds me heavily of a ton of bands I love, including Editors, The Bravery, and Cold War Kids. It’s no wonder I gravitate to Sulwyn so easily. There’s even a touch of The Cure on this fantastic track. I love post punk music, if you haven’t noticed. 

I Heart Moosiq have done another lovely mention of Sulwyn. @

Our single has been reviewed in the incredible The Vinyl District

Artists Point of View: ‘Sulwyn’ - Fjords

by Kyle McCormick on 14 August 2014 in Features
With a sound that’s heavily indebted to the ’80s, those unfamiliar with the band may well be forgiven for thinking that Cardiff’s Fjords are a nostalgic band. And they would be right. Sort of. In fact, Fjords’ overall sound is built around a delicate appreciation of both old aesthetics and contemporary technologies, going so far as to use QR codes on posters to give away ‘Sulwyn’ in their hometown.

Speaking of which, ‘Sulwyn’ is a sleek, synth-tinged affair that encapsulates the sound of the band perfectly; deep bass paired against shimmering synths and nuanced percussion, it’s a track that reveals a little more about itself with each listen. We asked singer Sonny to divulge a little more on the nature of the track.”
