Trick Mist - Tummy Speak (Nighthawks Remix)

Info: Cork-based Dundalk native Trick Mist has announced the physical re-issue of his acclaimed debut EP, Jars in Rows, on CD via the experimental electronic artists Bandcamp page here. To coincide with the release, he has also shared a new music video, a mechanical-sounding remix by duo Nighthawks of previous single 'Tummy Speak' (above). 

Trick Mist is an electronic songwriter based in Cork. His music positions the lyrical song within a wider experimental electronic context. An intriguing blend of lyrics, traditional music odes and homemade samples form a sound which moves you inside and out.

He emerged in October 2015 with his debut EP 'Jars in Rows'. The self-produced observational EP was made after the Louth native's relocation to Manchester. The 4 track EP and its adjoining conceptual video project received widespread rave reviews and coverage from, The Thin Air, Broadsheet, Headstuff, Remy, Hotpress (Hot For 2016) and airplay from 2FM (Dan Hegarty), Amazing Radio (Simon Raymonde), TXFM, 2XM, Dublin City FM and Salford City Radio.

A split 7'' single with Video Blue followed in June 2016. The independent release available in stores across the UK and Ireland like Rough Trade (London), Tower (Dublin), Classified (Dundalk) and Piccadilly (Manchester) continued to turn heads.

'Fraction' emerged in November 2017. Composed with sounds captured by Murray on a writing and recording trip in India. The Single (available on CD and digital) and its accompanying remix by Kildare producer Phare received extensive coverage and garnered new plaudits from the likes of Nialler9, Golden Plec, craicntracks, diamond deposits,, and airplay from Totally Irish 98fm(John Barker), An Taobh Tuathail (Cian Ó Cíobháin) and Dublin Digital Radio.

Live, his shows are an intense, dramatic and almost meditative affair. Performances at Chorlton Arts Festival 2016 and Electric Picnic 2017 have cemented his reputation as an unusual and captivating live performer.

With Cork as his new home and a debut album in the works for 2018, Trick Mist's intrigue is set to grow.
