Gruff Rhys’s seventh solo album, Seeking New Gods, started off as a biography of Mount Paektu, an active East Asian volcano. However, as Gruff wrote, he began to reflect on the inhuman timescale of the peak’s existence and the intimate features that have allowed mythologies to be built around it over centuries. Both the mountain and the songs became more and more personal to him as time went on.
Seeking New Gods is “pop gold” (NME), “another finely-crafted addition to [the Super Furry Animals’ frontman’s] illustrious repertoire” (DIY Mag). Hearing it live will definitely be one of the highlights of the summer!
