Christopher Duncan is the bedroom genius behind one of the years most beguiling debut albums, released through the ever reliable Fat Cat records. The son of 2 classical musicians, Glaswegian Duncan is a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and that schooling shows through in this meticulously crafted slice of baroque folk-pop. Both understated and expansive these songs create their own captivating dream-world that is propulsive, gently psychedelic and ornately beautiful. ‘Architect’ was a surprise, but very deserving, entry to the 2015 Mercury Music Prize short-list. This will undoubtedly be the very tip of the iceberg of critical acclaim for this most magical of releases
Fans of Tunng, Beirut, The Beta Band, Django Django, Grizzly Bear or even The Beach Boys will love this.
