Lliwia means Colours. It’s a song written about childbirth. All the colours you can see when you close your eyes and the instant love that you feel for this soul that comes out.
Tincian is 9Bach’s second album. It’s an atmospheric, emotional record that reflects their home environment of Gerlan, North Wales. As Lisa Jen explains, ‘tincian can mean a lot of things, to move with a tinkling sound, to ring and make a clear sound. Depending on what area of Wales you are from, the meaning varies. It comes to life in dialogue when you use sentences like “I gave him such a talking to, he didn’t know what had hit him…he was ‘tincian’.” It’s almost like a cartoon image of someone’s head being hit by a hammer’.
