Stream: Gnarkats – Enigma

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Belfast three-piece Gnarkats recently teamed up with Paul Mahon of the Answer to record a new track, ‘Enigma’. Released this week, the single is a starry-eyed burst of gazey alt-indie with a lyrical undercurrent of feeling isolated in toxic relationships.

Speaking of the recording said, “Paul was amazing to work with, he loved the songs and we all got on really well. He put so much effort in to our music, had great suggestions and got the best performances out of us. We are very proud of the two tracks we worked on with him and it was truly a dream come true for [guitarist] Jordan (Evans) – The Answer is one of his favourite bands of all time!”

‘Enigma’ is yet another confident effort from Gnarkats, revealing within its shapeshifting three-minutes a band sonically progressing at a rapid pace.

Gnarkats play McHughs in Belfast alongside Rebekah Fitch on April 12.
