Strange Sun 1. Future Echoes is the mesmerising result. Written in remote seclusion but recorded in the bustling heart of London, it reunites Pictish Trail with Adem Ilhan, who produces the majority of the record. Johnny and Adem previously wrote music together in 2010 under the name Silver Columns, releasing the hugely well received album Yes And Dance via London taste-makers Moshi Moshi. Future Echoes features additional production and mixing from Rob Jones (Sweet Baboo, Slow Club) and drumming from Alex Thomas (Fridge, Squarepusher, Air, Bat For Lashes) and was mastered by Guy Davie at Electric Mastering.

Future Echoes is his making sense of all of this, notably the broken ties with KC – album highlights 'Lion Head' and 'Half-Life' see big choruses and addictive melodies boost thoughts on the destruction of platonic love, of slaying idols and breaking free from the negative effects of others.
Dead Connection, 03:12.
1. Far Gone (Don't Leave).
Johnny Lynch (born 28 September 1981, Edinburgh) is a Scottish musician who performs under the pseudonym The Pictish Trail. After graduation from the University of St Andrews, Lynch ran Fence Records from 2003 until 2013 and has since been running Lost Map Records. Lynch has attended and played every Green Man Festival since its inception in 2003. He's also played as band member with other musicians, including James Yorkston and Malcolm Middleton.
The opening track from The Pictish Trail’s brilliant new record begins with moody, droning strings coupled with a Massive Attack-style retro hip-hop beat and is inspired by the Coen Brothers’ snowy thriller Fargo. This mismatch of ideas and styles pretty much sums up ‘Future Echoes’ - it’s diverse, it’s original, but most of all, it’s super fun. Pictish - AKA Johnny Lynch - has never been one for seriousness, peppering his live shows with gold jackets and glitter, anecdotes on the wonders of rural Scottish island life and massive electro rave outs to end a moving folky number. Future Echoes’ is a reflection of Lynch’s home life in a caravan on the isle of Eigg, where he wrote the album. The remoteness, the silence, the space, the nature. It wraps you up like a sunny day in the middle of no where.
Summary: Produced by Adem Ilhan, the latest release for Johnny Lynch as The Pictish Trail follows a fall out with Fence Records founder Kenny "King Creosote' Anderson and a move to Isle of Eigg.
