Cardiff-based Ani Glass is the musical nomme de guerre of electronic pop musician, producer, artist and photographer, Ani Saunders.
A member of The Pipettes, she’s also now well known for performing in the Welsh language, with her solo musical style taking elements of the mystic and the electronic, creating a sound that is moody and moving as on Peirianwaith Perffaith.
With its dramatic opening coming off like a cross between some folk reverie and a 70s-inspired cult sci-fi film, there’s no end to the song’s inventiveness and playfulness, each listen uncovering a little nugget of aural joy.
There’s an innocence and beauty to it also; that’s very much down to Glass’ vocal delivery, breathy and ethereal in equal measure, and when in utilised in combination with the moving arrangement, Peirianwaith Perffaith is sure to delight fans of synthpop, Italo and Welsh language music alike.
Peirianwaith Perffaith is due for an official release on 26th October via Recordiau Neb, so be sure to keep an eye on Ani Glass’ Facebook and Bandcamp pages for more information on this creative and unique artist.
