Hen Ogledd share new track ‘Space Golf’

The experimental indie group has shared their latest track, ‘Space Golf’, ahead the release of their forthcoming album Free Humans, out tomorrow via Weird World.

‘Space Golf’, with its lyrics alluding to skewering U.S. president Donald Trump, denounces the obscenity of the ruling elite and catastrophic capitalism.

The track is the third single from Hen Ogledd’s forthcoming album, Free Humans, after ‘Crimson Star’ and lead single ‘Trouble’.

The trippy track, much like the album as a whole, shines a light of hope and liberation while also highlighting the tragedy of the wrongs happening in the world.

Free Humans is scheduled for release tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 25). The album tackles “themes themes of love, friendship, Gaia theory, sewers, the nature of time, human stench, and the thrills of wild swimming”.

The group has described the album as,

Inspired as much by ABBA as the work of 12th century mystic-composer-naturalist-visionary Hildegard von Bingen, touched equally by the spirits of radical philosophical plumber Mary Midgley and PC Music star Hannah Diamond, as quiet as the paintings of Agnes Martin yet bombastic like a Werner Herzog documentary… it’s an album of seamless, glorious contradictions.

Hen Ogledd is founded by experimental folk artist Richard Dawson and avant-garde harpist Rhodri Davies in 2012, taking their name from the Welsh term for the region between Southern Scotland and Northern England.

Vocalist and electornic musician Dawn Bothwell joined the band for their 2016 live album Bronze. They recently signed to Domino Records’ Weird World imprint for their third album Mogic in 2018, welcoming vocalist Sally Pinklington into the band and changed their eccentric music style to pop-friendly songs.
