Mellt are a four piece band originally from Aberystwyth, but now based in Cardiff. Their debut album ‘Mae’n Hawdd Pan Ti’n Ifanc’ (It’s Easy When You’re Young) won the coveted Welsh Language Album of the Year in 2018, and was nominated for the Welsh Music Prize the same year. It received rave reviews – “All the tracks feel so self-contained, so tastefully cut off, and in a world of long, static space-pop interludes, Mellt’s snappy college-boy snarls takes indie rock back to its roots.”

The band are now working on their second album, set for release in 2023 by Clwb Music (Clwb Ifor Bach’s music label). Their recent single ‘Marconi’ has received plays from BBC Radio 6 Music, BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Wales and the band have received high praise for their brand new single.

With numerous live shows under their belt, this energetic four piece manages to captivate an audience wherever they go. With their catchy guitar riffs and a perfect blend of slacker rock and post punk sounds — Mellt’s clever and intricate lyrics take them to the next level.
