“‘Pang!’ is a Welsh language song with an English title,” explains Rhys. “It started life as a folk reel and soon expanded into a ‘list’ song, listing various reasons for pangs; hunger, regret, twitter, pain, bad design etc. Using the English word pang in a Welsh language track may appear weird but I suppose it’s like using the French word ‘magazine’ in an English song. In that it’s slightly pretentious but completely acceptable.”
