2017 was an exciting year for Omaloma. Single ‘Aros o Gwmpas’ enjoyed a lot of love from the likes of Gideon Coe, Lauren Laverne, Tom Ravenscroft and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music. Huw Stephens aired the track several times on BBC Radio 1 and the band received widespread support on BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Wales. Festival appearances included Green Man, and, thanks to BBC Radio Cymru, a chance to headline the BBC Introducing stage at Latitude Festival.
It looks as if 2018 will be just as exciting as the band prepare for the release of their next slice of space pop, the blissful 7” single ‘Bubblegum’. The B side features an extended version of ‘Aros o Gwmpas’. The single will also be available digitally. Omaloma will supporting Gwenno on 7 of her spring UK tour dates.
