'Breathtakingly powerful - the true magic of song writing
that few can pull off with such aplomb. Highly recommended.'-
Trick Mist is an electronic songwriter based in Cork.
His music positions the lyrical song within a wider
experimental electronic context. An intriguing blend
of lyrics, traditional Irish music odes and homemade
samples form a sound which moves you inside and out.
He emerged in October 2015 with his debut EP 'Jars in
Rows'. The self-produced observational EP was made after
the Louth native's relocation to Manchester. The 4 track
EP and its adjoining conceptual video project received
widespread rave reviews and coverage from State.ie,
The Thin Air, Broadsheet, Headstuff, Remy, Hotpress(Hot
For 2016) and airplay from 2fm(Dan Hegarty), Amazing
Radio(Simon Raymonde), TXFM, 2xm, Dublin City FM and
Salford City Radio.
A split 7'' single with Video Blue followed in June
2016. The independent release available in stores across
the UK and Ireland like Rough Trade (London), Tower
(Dublin), Classified (Dundalk) and Piccadilly (Manchester)
continued to turn heads.
He has built himself a reputation as an unusual and
captivating live performer with his intense, dramatic
and almost meditative live shows.
With Cork as his new home, another single set for release
in Autumn this year and a debut album in the works for
early 2018, Trick Mist's intrigue is set to grow.
