From the depths of Mid Wales comes Owain Griffiths, who now lives in Leipzig, Germany after a spell in Cardiff. Under the moniker Carw, Owain’s music experiments with 80s synth sounds and dream-pop melodies weaving through layers of guitar effects, punctuated by abrupt drum-machine beats.

As well as repeated plays on BBC 6 Music, Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru, BBC Three Counties Radio and Amazing Radio, Carw has attracted a lot of attention for his recent live preformances, joined onstage by an assemblage of machines and instruments.

Carw’s first EP, Les Sœurs was released in June 2015 on Blinc, followed by his full-length debut in 2018, Skin Shed, and the album Maske in 2020.
