Like many of his Welsh kinsmen, Gruff Rhys can often be found standing on a cliff overlooking the sea, with the wind blowing in his hair. The singer/chief technicolorist of rock exploders Super Furry Animals and electro team Neon Neon thinks big and fresh with his critically acclaimed American Interior project, written about the journey of 18th-century Welsh explorer John Evans, who traversed the early United States in search of the Madogwys, a mythical, Welsh-speaking tribe of Native Americans. Rhys presents the album’s mad mix of eerie folk/hillbilly, Morricone-esque desert twang, lovely lounge pop and sweeping cinematica in a multimedia show with help from Rhys’ John Evans “avatar” companion.
