Following a tour of Japan, a Welsh Music Prize nomination and a gig-filled 2019 HMS Morris are back with their new single ‘Babanod’ meaning ‘Babies’ , will be released on February 7th (Dydd Miwsig Cymru – Welsh Music Day) on Bubblewrap Records. ‘Babanod’ is the first in a series of singles slated for release in 2020, during which the band will also be developing a theatre show ready for performance in 2021.
The impetus for writing ‘Babanod’ was the awkward moment in your friend’s wedding when someone feels compelled to reassure you that “you’ll be next”. In that situation, surrounded by married couples and young children, how do you assert your right to a slightly alternative lifestyle, something other than just moving directly from graduation to marriage to parenthood, without sounding like a total dick? Better to smile, bottle it up, and release it in a song when you get home.
‘Babanod’ will be available digitally from all the usual platforms.
