Never miss another 'Pictish Trail' show
Mono Hogmanay Party: Pictish Trail + Randolph's Leap
Experimental folk-pop from one-man band Pictish Trail, aka Johnny Lynch. Fusing home-made electronica with DIY instrumentation, Pictish Trail's music is simple, sweet and instantly seductive. '… this is the sound of Scotland quietly floating far, far out to some deep enchanting waters. And never dreaming of floating back.' - Domino
Pictish Trail tour dates
Glasgow-based melody merchants Randolph's Leap are an eight piece folk-pop outfit, recently signed to Fence Records (home to the likes of King Creosote, The Pictish Trail and Kid Canaveral).
Following on from the success of their debut EP, 'Battleships & Kettle Chips' on Olive Grove Records, 2012 saw the release of the band's album of home recordings, 'Randolph's Leap and The Curse of the Haunted Headphones' on limited edition cassette through Peenko Records. The album was hailed as a lo-fi triumph, showcasing "funny, poignant acoustic arias" (The List) and "emotional accessibility and sheer likeability" (Song By Toad). In the summer of 2012 the band released their career-spanning greatest hits collection 'Introducing Randolph's Leap'.
The band followed this up with another home-spun album called 'As Fast As A Man' (Peenko Records). In October of last year the band released the 'Hermit' EP, the first studio material to feature the full band, on Fence Records as part of their Buff Tracks 7-inch series.
The band have won over many new fans thanks to their appearances at T in the Park, Celtic Connections, Wickerman, Belladrum and Fence Records' HomeGame, AwayGame and Eye O'The Dug Festival. More recently the band featured in the Blog Sound of 2013 list and they were also tipped by Vic Galloway in Ones To Watch in 2013. In addition to this they have recently recorded a session for Marc Riley's 6Music show and in February they are due to play their biggest gig to date when they headline the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh.
