Candelas are a Welsh rock band from Llanuwchllyn, North Wales.
Candelas released their first EP "Kim Y Syniad" in 2011. Since being signed to the label I Ka Ching in 2013 they have released two albums and three singles. Their first album featured songs in both Welsh and English and their second album is entirely sung in Welsh.
In 2013 the band won three awards from the magazine Y Selar for best song, best long record and best band. They won best band again in 2015. Their album Bodoli'n Ddistaw was shortlisted for the 2015 Welsh-language album of the year.
The band have played at numerous music festivals across Wales such as Festival Number 6, Maes B, and Tafwyl which they headlined in 2016 and again in 2017 after Bryn Fôn pulled out.
As of 2017 the band is reported to be recording their first English-language EP and a third album.
The band's drummer, Lewis Williams, won best instrumentalist at the 2013 Y Selar awards for his work in Candelas and Sŵnami.
