Summer Playlist | The Best Welsh Music of 2016

It’s been a top year in a golden age for Welsh music, and we at Wales Arts Review have had a lot of fun compiling this playlist of footstompers, barnstormers, and the odd quiet low-fi reflective tune to help our readers along through the summer hours. There is so much good stuff in here, and beyond these tracks is a pile of excellent albums, all released by Welsh artists in 2016. So sit back, pour a drink, and press play.
