The Pictish Trail


Everyone’s tags

More tags


The work of Johnny Lynch, aka ‘The Pictish Trail’ is more stirringly subversive stuff from the Fence Collective. Lynch writes warm, welcoming tales with tiny keyboard patterns, acoustic neo-folk rumblings and all manner of undeniable oddball noises.’

‘Akin to Lou Barlow sobbing his tiny heart out while submerged in Loch Ness, this is the sound of Scotland quietly floating far, far out to some deep enchanting waters. And never dreaming of floating back.

    @theneongreen - perhaps you've spotted it but Fence have the new album to pre-order now - the LP version also comes as a double gatefold with his previous album.

    Can anyone point me towards anywhere I can get this guy's music from? Even the label seems to be sold out..

    I went to see Pictish Trail supporting James Yorkston at the Luminaire last night and he was excellent. Very entertaining show and I'm enjoying his album that I bought :)
