Thran is the monicker of Belfast based electronic musician Ronan Scullion. Releasing his debut EP At A Loss on his own label imprint Nonchalant Recordings, Thran’s music has been a patient labour of love over the past couple of years, taking plenty of time before releasing his melodious, frosty electronica into the world.
Blending elements of Trip-Hop, post-dubstep and hints of garage, the music could best be compared to the likes of Mount Kimbie, James Holden and Burial. There is an ambient, spacey quality to tracks such as ‘Retreat’ and the EP’s title track that could lead to comparisons being drawn with acts such as MMOTHS and God is an Astronaut.
With a second EP expected to be released in August of this year, momentum is set to increase for Thran in the coming months. In the meantime, check out At a Loss on Spotify. Also worth checking out is his stunning remix of Jealous of the Birds ‘Goji Berry Sunset’, available through his Soundcloud.
