It being the first day of January, time to look forwards rather than back. Buzz writers have already picked their Welsh musical tips for 2018, and while the likes of Adwaith and Boy Azooga were among those named, Niterooms weren't. On the strength of their new EP, as well as previous single 'Wash' and a glowing endorsement from Adam Walton, they perhaps should have been. Below is my Buzz review of the EP, as featured in the December/January issue.

Niterooms are aptly named: their hazy songs swim in and out of focus, the beats often muffled and only distantly audible, as though heard from the darkened recesses of a comedown cave in the bowels of a club. Abstract, texturally adventurous android r'n'b that holds considerable promise.
