Lo-fi Jones has released their new video for the track titled ‘Bad Technology’. Genres meld and mold with precision and grace bound with sheer originality in such a way that a new subgenre may have been formed. A subtle anthem with a slight act of angst fuse the notes and settle the rhythm with a track that started out as a lucid idea.

Whatever Lo-fi Jones is, it’s original. It’s here and ready for the masses. ‘Bad Technology’ is a slow burn that builds as it caresses. It takes what it needs and gives you back what you want. A dirtier sound from fold with a cleaner set of ideas.

About Lo-fi Jones

Forged in slate and small town angst in the foothills of Eryri, North Wales, by brothers Liam and Siôn Rickard, Lo-fi Jones enjoy igniting audiences with eclectic folk/indie/pop. Part of a growing wave of artists taking Welsh language music and culture beyond Wales’s borders.

Based in Machynlleth, the line-up is completed by Nicaraguan multi-instrumentalist Rolando Bertrand and the versatile ‘Badger’ Brown. High-energy, unpredictable, infused with surreal humour, Lo-fi Jones fuse contemporary and traditional styles, exploring themes both personal and global.

The award-winning Welsh indie-folk band are now returning for 2024 with their new single, Bad Technology, which will be the title track off their forthcoming EP of the same title.

Bad Technology is a cry of frustration and catharsis for the millions of people who feel modern technology may be conspiring against them. A comic, dark and bilingual exploration of our relationship with technology, the grungy feel of this track is in contrast to the folkier sound of the band’s debut EP Llanast yn y Llofft, and introduces a humor that could be compared to Flight of the Concords.

The track is joyfully accompanied by Trigger Happy Creative, a Welsh production team who have created content for artists such as Panic Shack, Mali Haf, and Wrkhouse.
