The Pitchforks – Afflictions
The Pitchforks are a young band from the Rhondda who are currently part of the development scheme Forte which is working with young music artists emerging from South Wales. ‘Afflictions’ is a polished adrenaline fuelled slice of floor filling, indie rock. The track is a far cry from the band’s previous single ‘Headlock’. The vocals are much improved and the band seemed to have found a sound and style that they feel comfortable with. On the evidence of this single the band should now take their place alongside the likes of The Himalayas and Boy Azooga as one of the exciting new wave of young bands emerging from Wales in 2017.
