A WELSH language band, barely out of school, went back to school to showcase the Welsh language to pupils.

Dagrau Tân are making waves, not only for the quality of their music, but the tender age they are producing what some reviews from Cardiff are calling “astonishingly professional sound”.

The four-piece indie band are Josh Lewis, 15, (drums), Elian Davies, 15, (vocals, guitar), Steffan Lloyd, 14, (guitar) and Rhydian Carnie, 14, (bass). 

The up-and-coming youngsters sing in Welsh and English and play indie-rock melodies with pure vocals and a hint of grunge. 

They recently went back to Ysgol Pen Y Garth in Penarth (former primary school of 3 of the band) at the invitation of Mrs Bliss, their former teacher, to entertain and inspire the kids, give them a chance to celebrate their Welsh culture and identity, and showcase Welsh language Music. 

On the gig, the band’s bassist Rhydian Carnie said it was really enjoyable.

“It was cool to come back to our old school – we loved it here - and it was brilliant to watch the kids rocking out to our music – these are our future fans!”

Penarth Times:

The band played a gig at Ysgol Pen Y Garth in Penarth for St Davids'

The band are now all pupils at Ysgol Gymraeg Bro Morgannwg in Barry. 

A recent review of their performance at the ‘Immersed Festival’ in Cardiff said the band’s sound was brilliant.

"With such a professional sound, it’s astonishing to find out that the group are still just 14 and 15 years old," said the review.  

The band have gigged at Tafwyl, Gwyl Fach y Fro and Clwb Ifor Bach and are currently recording a demo with music producers Sound Progression in Cardiff.

They are also about to film their first music video - Watch out for Dagrau Tân; Wales’ next big thing.
