Ynys Press Shot

YnysYnys (aka Dylan Hughes) has announced details of his second solo single. Hughes (Radio Luxembourg/Race Horses) will release ‘Mae’n Hawdd’ digitally via Libertino Records on the 26th July.

‘Mae’n Hawdd’ follows on from his acclaimed debut solo single ‘Caneuon’ and sees Hughes take his sound even further sharing an epic guitar quality with fellow Welshman and the grandiose pop of McAlmont & Butler. The single was written five years ago following a midnight coastal walk and you can really feel the ebb and flo of a tide and the chill around the edges a gorgeous fog can provide.

Featuring long time friend Mali Llywelyn on vocals, the song was recorded with a mixture of 80s sequencers, 70s string machines and melancholic harmonies. The song is according to Hughes:

“about letting go and understanding that everything is easy when you know how”

Ynys has a full summer and autumn on the road playing at different venues and festivals including Sŵn Festival in his adopted home city of Cardiff.

Ynys – Mae’n Hawdd Lyrics / Translation

It’s Easy

Midnight clouds, rolling waves,
When I go back, I here those words,
Feels like an echo, the sadness returning.
The voices they call me under the deep dark sea.

Can I tell you where I went,
Can I explain to you


It’s easy, when you know how.
It’s easy, when you know how.
To forget those memories

The train’s waiting, but I’m still waiting for you.
Like somebody I used to know.
Do you want to be someone, who never feels like this.
The voices they call me under the deep dark sea.

Can I tell you where I went,
Can I explain to you
