Cardiff’s Cate Le Bon is slated to follow up her debut album, Me Oh My, on Jan. 17 with CYRK. The album is a pop-heavy long player that features wiry guitars, old-school production and her haunting Welsh-flavored voice.

Le Bon started to record her sophomore record at the beginning of 2011, continuing her blend of art-rock drawing from equal parts Nico and Gruff Rhys. In the process, she created one of 2012’s first impressive pop records, exuding a confidence similar to recent tourmate St. Vincent.

Following her album release, Le Bon will set out on a headlining tour this February, starting in Cambridge, Mass. Stream CYRK in the player below and see her upcoming tour dates below.
