Biography

Here he comes. The dark horse. The bloke at the back. The odd one.

Cian Ciaran is a founder member of that democratic state of music known as Super Furry Animals.

He’s got this album, right. It’s a real beauty, songs of love and
longing; delicate, fragile and understated. People who know about
these kind of things have been whispering about it ever since Cian
started messing about in the studio. This is a bit special, they said.

Just so you know, Cian is the baby of the SFA bunch. He has a
performing history in music stretching back to his early teens. His
first love was acid house and he didn’t hear anything by Neil Young
until he was 21 years old.

In our desire to understand one of the most intriguing groups of their
time, we gave the Super Furries name tags and job descriptions,
praying they wouldn’t move around too much to confuse us.

That made Cian the one who sat at a keyboard and added vocal harmonies
when they played live. On occasion, he released techno tracks of his
own making. That was him sorted.

So it’s no wonder this debut album comes as a surprise, even to those
who’ve known Cian for donkeys. It was written entirely on the piano
and features contributions from fellow-Furries Dafydd Ieuan and Guto
Pryce, as well as regular collaborators Osian and Mei Gwynedd.

All Cian had to do was write the songs, sing and whistle a bit,
engineer, produce and do the mixing. Easy.

The difficult stuff was writing about things that really matter. Love
