New Video Alert | Gwenno | Fratolish Hiang Perpeski


Gwenno has a new video for her single ‘Fratolish Hiang Perpeski’ directed by Jacek Davis. Gigwise are premiering it:

The video offers a sort of physical manifestation of these layers, as Gwenno appears through various camera filters and guises, draped in red silk, a paisley wrap, even cling film, each incarnation superimposed over the next, or doubled up as if through a drunken, psychedelic haze.

I made this video with photographer and film maker Jacek Davis,” Gwenno says. “Jacek’s imagery evokes pure glamour in the most DIY sense, and since Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki is about dancing in a dystopian future where robot overlords have taken over the world and we’re all rapidly being turned into clones, we thought we’d make a video of me dancing — as a final wave goodbye to freedom.”


The single is from her debut album “Y Dydd Olaf’ which was released to great critical acclaim last year:

Y Dydd Olaf is at once spooky and playful, romantic and angry… Mixing an ancient, bucolic language with otherworldly dance music is a genius move.”
Mojo – ★★★★

Saunders immediately commuincates a sense of fracture and collapse, the dying fall of Golau Arall or the chaotic pop static of Stwff unfolding against an ominous deep red horizon… This record demands what’s left of your time.”
Q Magazine – ★★★★

A record so effortlessly coherent, consistent and engaging as to be almost perfect… A fabulous voyage that delights at every unexpected turn.”
Record Collector – ★★★★

A neatly devised tribute to 1970s electronic pop, all vintage synthesizers and propulsive krautrock beats, with echos of Goldfrapp and Stereolab.”
Financial Times – ★★★★

The Welsh-language debut by the former Pipettes frontwoman pairs luscious, breathy vocals and sci-fi themes with funky electronica and industrial clanks – the sound of the M4 meeting the autobahn.”
Time Out – ★★★★
