We're delighted that Martha Ffion will be coming to Cardiff as part of her UK Tour in support of her debut album 'Sunday Best' which will be released in early 2018 on Turnstile Music.
Initially breaking through with a ‘postcard single’ on Scotland’s flourishing Lost Map label, Ffion’s reputation soared with last year’s ‘Trip’ EP, a swooning five-track collection that was
released by Turnstile Music (Cate Le Bon, Gruff Rhys,
Charlotte Church, Emmy the Great etc.) and championed by GoldFlakePaint for its “beautifully melodic sway”.
Written entirely in Glasgow since her move from a distinct Catholic upbringing in smalltown Ireland, Ffion’s debut album, ‘Sunday Best’, spans the first songs she properly wrote to her most recent compositions, and is by far her most adventurous and accomplished work to-date, the lush instrumentation bringing her detailed lyrical vision to life through a series of gleaming guitar-pop songs that drift between soft-centred balladry and something altogether more cutting and forceful.
Support comes from Hoult & Matthew Frederick.
