"A poignant, lo-fi project that revels in a kind of melancholic, DIY sound" THE FACE
"A triumph of DIY, dare-to-differ song craft that simply sounds like nobody else" BOOMKAT
"An unorthodox and exciting new force" DISTRICT MAGAZINE
Drawing from a surreal, daydream-like cloud of reference points, the songwriting of mysterious Irish artist pigbaby is painfully honest, and sonically unconventional, drawing on themes including love, loss, mental health and identity. His music shares parallels with oddball auteurs such as Daniel Johnston and Jim O'Rourke — experimental, ambient singer-songwriters who deal in rough-edged truth-telling.
Listening to the dissonant, hallucinogenic world of pigbaby feels like sinking deeper into the artist's subconscious. His introspective bedroom folk draws together the most absurd of reference points – from Sinead O'Connor playing the Virgin Mary, to the online reality game Second Life, to random YouTube videos of people fighting. pigbaby's music forms a picture of digital chaos, longing, and loneliness.
During a period of particular bleakness in 2021, pigbaby fled the world he knew and travelled along windy, wet roads to find a small cottage in the Irish countryside to nest in. Armed with 3 bottles of whiskey, some potatoes and sausages, old synthesisers, a harmonium and cassette tapes he found in his mother's attic, pigbaby planned to make his debut album. Over the course of 2 months many people came to visit, and with the help of Max Granger, Maria Somerville, Felix Stephens & Cajm, pigbaby crafted a record of love, heartbreak, hope and remembering his past.
The album sat on a hard drive for some time, and pb occupied himself making music videos for each track to help piece together some sort of narrative, he filmed in indonesia, ireland, new york, japan & london, until the album was finally ready to be heard and seen.
