NEWS: Aderyn returns with anthemic ‘I Wish I Had a Dog’ from debut EP ‘Sea Glass’

Aderyn returns with ‘I Wish I Had A Dog’, the lead track from her forthcoming debut EP, Sea Glass.

A perky indie-punky-pop anthem, with a cracking almost doo-wop beat and jiving riffs, it’s laced with Aderyn’s withering(tongue in cheek) side eye at ‘the 20s’ and her own generation-an era of Instagrammers, influencers, dodgy landlords, nepo-babies and social media stars.It’s not only a cracking tune, riven with hooks and bittersweet singalongs, it’s a clever message delivered with a glint in the eye. It has the punchy effervescence of a movie soundtrack, and yet uniquely encapsulates the disenfranchisement of the 2020s. Cardiff’s Aderyn is the pop star we need!

Aderyn says of the song “I wrote this song about the surreal times we are living in. The lyric ‘all the girls are selling pictures of their feet’ really sums up the absurdity of my generation. It’s probably more common for a girl in her twenties to have an OnlyFans than own a house. As an artist, I want to talk about that.”

Aderyn was recently awarded the Welsh Music Prize Triskel Award. ‘I Wish I Had A Dog’ was recorded with Gethin Pearson (Charli XCX, Orla Gartland) in West Wales, and Aderyn herself played all the drums on the track.

Aderyn says: “Drums are my first instrument so it was so fun playing all the drums for the EP. I really wanted to create a sort of indie punk feel on the rhythm section, and then more of a
Pop shimmer on the top end”
