Brit punks Darko have a new video! The guys have premiered the visual for new track Hiraeth. The track is taken from their forthcoming record Bonsai Mammoth which is set for release via Lockjaw Records on February 3, 2017!
Now it seems the Guildford crew have a thing for using ‘foreign’ words in their titles. We all know bonsai is a type of tree, but just what exactly does ‘hiraeth’ mean? Well as a very proud Welsh woman, I can tell you, it has no literal English translation. It’s a word we use in Wales but actually doesn’t really have a meaning, crazy huh? Although to give it some context, the University of Wales in Lampeter have given it a broad overview of homesickness. Guitarist Rob Piper says of the single; “Its been really humbling to receive such positive reaction from all our fans and friends so far. We have been working up to this release for a while and I’m so excited to hear that people are enjoying the new single.”
The album is full of the issues currently faced by the population and is leading the way for a resurgence in true punk rock!
