On last Thursday’s edition of our show on Dublin Digital Radio we debuted the new single from an artist we’ve become rather fond of in the past two years. Gavin Murray AKA Trick Mist‘s blend of skilled songwriting, atmospheric electronics and percussion, and looped violins make him a solo artist whose output has only improved since we first came across it.
Now, the newly Cork-based artist who had lived in Manchester for the past number of years, delivers his most mature work to date in the form of ‘Fraction’, a track in two halves that blends echoed vocals and layers of violin and keys in the first half with a rhythmic, hypnotic pulse in the second to accompany a simple but deeply affective spoken word section. Embellishing the track are collections of sounds recorded and captured while Murray was travelling across India.
Take a look at the video below. Trick Mist will play in Alchemy in Cork this Sunday 12 November and on 29 December in his native Dundalk’s Spirit Store.
