Gruff Rhys

We’ve long suspected that Gruff Rhys likes Wales; not only his country of origin, but also the sea-dwelling mammalian creatures. By which I mean whales. As if to prove it, the Super Furry Animals frontman is releasing his latest solo single, ‘Whale Trail’, with a whale-themed iPhone/iPad game of the same name.

Rhys himself will narrate the game in Welsh, following the whimsical adventures of Willow The Whale as he collects ‘Blubbles’ to nourish his multi-coloured vapour trail. If by any chance that doesn’t make sense, the ‘Whale Trail’ preview below might just help.

With app and single both set for release on 20 Oct, you can also stream the song here.
