Confirmed to play Glastonbury Festival
Ahead of its full release next Monday (9th June) on Moshi Moshi, The Pictish Trail is streaming Secret Soundz Volumes 1 & 2 online.
Listen to the albums here.
The Pictish Trail aka Johnny Lynch has an innovative, genre-defying approach to songwriting. His eloquent songs are as wildly varied as his selection of brightly coloured bobble hats and have seen him get mentioned in the same breath as his heroes Beck, The Beta Band and Hot Chip. His extraordinary vocals reveal hidden depths and have been accompanied by everything from acoustic guitar to a full-on four piece metal band to throbbing dance beats and samples, and often during the course of the same gig.
Known for his ability to subdue the most rowdy of audiences into a blissfully hypnotised silence, The Pictish Trail recently completed a full tour of the UK. He will play Glastonbury Festival ahead of his own festival Howlin’ Fling – taking place on the remote Hebridean island Eigg, where he calls home.
