Bydd Talmai yn rhyddhau eu EP gyntaf ar Rheidol Records y mis Mai yma.  Maent wedi bod yn perfformio ers blwyddyn bellach ac o’r diwedd wedi mentro i stiwdio Radical Academy er mwyn recordio rhai o’u hanthemau roc.  Gan gyfuno elfennau roc, prog, metal a dubstep, mae’r band wedi bod yn diddanu cynulleidfaoedd drwy Gymru gyda’u hegni byw a’u gallu cerddorol.

Yn gyntaf daw “Dim ond Ni” – cri angerddol o’r galon.  Cyfuniad o sain gywrain gitarau Dafydd Dabson a llais esgynnol Ceri Ambrose sydd yma yn gwau drwy’i gilydd,  llawn riffiau trwm a bachau lleisiol cofiadwy.

Cân serch yw “Fy Merch”, ond cân serch â thro chwerw iddi.  Mae’n cipio ein sylw o’r nodyn cyntaf un, ac mae hyn yn parhau, grŵf ar ôl grŵf.  Dawnsio mae llais Josh Holland rhwng ebychiadau milain a chytganau tyner, melodaidd, tra bod Aled Lloyd yn ategu’r effaith â’i ddrwm bâs dychlamol a’i dabyrddau meistrolgar.

Ar “Dyddiau Byw” mae’r band ar eu gorau yn felodaidd.  Stomp o anthem roc yw’r gân hapus, hafaidd hon.  Mae canu pwerus Ambrose yn cael ei wthio yn ei flaen gan linellau bâs ysgogol Seun Babatola a synths dirgrynol Ben Dabson i greu trac gyrru perffaith sy’n eich gorfodi i ymuno yn y gân.

Mae’r EP yn cloi gydag ailgymysgedd ingol o “Dim ond Ni”.  Gyda chymysgedd o weadau cynnes y tannau a gitarau distaw mae’r band yn dangos eu gallu i greu teimlad hiraethus lle ceir hefyd ing y fersiwn wreiddiol.

Tracks: Dim Ond Ni // Fy Merch // Dyddiau Byw // Dim Ond Ni (Acoustic Mix)dagrau cover front talmai take 2

“Dim ond Ni” (Only Us) starts off the collection, a heartfelt cry of passion from the soul. Dafydd Dabson’s intricate guitars blend with Ceri Ambrose’s soaring vocals in this epic number full of heavy riffs and catchy vocal hooks.

“Fy Merch” (My Girl) is a bitter twist on a love song – grabbing your attention from the start, groove after groove keeps you transfixed. Josh Holland‘s vocals dance between angry exclamations and tender melodic choruses, complemented throughout by the pounding bass drum and virtuosic drum rolls of Aled Lloyd.

“Dyddiau Byw” (The Living Days) sees the band at their melodic best. This stomping rock anthem is sure to be a feelgood summer hit. Ambrose’s powerful vocals are accompanied by the driving basslines of Seun Babatola and throbbing synths of Ben Dabson to create the perfect driving track you can’t help but sing along to.

The Dabson brothers’ poignant remix of ‘Dim ond Ni’ brings the EP to a close. With a mix of warm string textures and soft finger picking guitars the band show their ability to capture a yearning, nostalgic mood.
