Ynys (Island) is led by Dylan Hughes, ex-Race Horses and Radio Luxembourg. The songs of Ynys are rich collection of melancholic harmonies, over a soundtrack of 80’s sequencers, 70’s string machines, and fuzz guitars.

From Aberystwyth, Ynys released their debut album on Libertino Records in November 2022.

Their ambitious sound palette journeys from Big Star power pop to Beach House via cinematic strings, sung in Welsh and English. Their adventurous playful song craft and off-kilter psychedelic pop songs have led to singles of the week on Amazing Radio, BBC Radio Wales, and live sessions for BBC 6 Music’s Marc Riley show and Amazing Radio.
