Song of the Day: "Shark Ridden Waters"

Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) is a Welsh musician who loves reverb and probably wishes he were born in a different decade. Reminiscent of flared chords and throwback bands like Tame Impala, he's written a song that I like, "Shark Ridden Waters". Rhys is celebrating the launch of his album Hotel Shampoo with a sold-out party taking over the Gresham Hotel in Blackpool. It sounds like it'll be both hilarious and great.

Clearly his crackly, warm pop style is doing well enough to grab the attention of The Guardian, Clash Music, This is Fake DIY and BBC Music. I like that you can view his website in Cymraeg too.
