9Bach Anian on LP

Anian is the newest Real World Records endeavor from 9Bach. Anian is a soulful, brooding record whose songs take a critical look at the world in which we live. While Tincian - BBC Radio 2 Folk Award 2015 Winner of Best Album - commemorated stories from the past, Anian explores more contemporary themes. As singer, composer and pianist Lisa Jên explains, the album comes from a desperate, anarchic place, "It marks where I'm at, whether it's my age, being a mother, or simply being much more exposed to social media where I'm faced with pictures and videos, images and words which I find difficult to cope with right now."

The eleven songs move from the rolling rhythms of "Llyn Du" to the piano settings of "Ifan" and "Deryn," the layered voices of "Brain" and "Si Hwi Hwi" to the full band Near Eastern climax of "Cyfaddefa." At the centre is always Lisa Jên's voice, and the instinctive way in which 9Bach work together. "The songs always start with the vocal melody," says Martin Hoyland. "Then it's my job to build the instrumentation and arrangements around that, and to compliment it as much as possible." Anian is a Welsh word meaning nature, the natural order, natural morality, the natural world, creation. What you are made of, your soul and bones, and how you connect with other people.
