Musus Glaw - Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog

Fun video and cool song. By the name I'm guessing they're Welsh. I just found their MySpace and it looks like Wales, alright... everything is in Welsh. "Un noson unig ar Ros Botwnnog, eisteddai tri brawd o amgylch y tan." Sorry, I can't tell you much about the video.

I like the effect on the exploding sun and the other nice weather effects. Some cleverly composited 3D too.

Labels: ,

This was made recently for the S4C Welsh music show Bandit (www.bandit247.com). It's a great little video and an absolutely fantastic song.

Since the Welsh language music scene is small and financially very fragile, it's extremely unusual for 'commercial' promotional videos to be created - the vast majority, like this one, are commissioned by S4C programmes to fill airtime. Another notable example would be this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDi5vNxmeW8
for Radio Luxembourg's last single but one.

Bought the Album, Dawns y Trychfilod, for the song Musus Glaw, and it's slower on the album. I much prefer this version, wish they'd released this on the album. They're a great band, and the weather effects are relative to the lyrics.
Also liked Cyn yr Haf and Pressez et Maintenez mon Bouton. Waiting for the next ablum.
