Back to Beò: Pictish Trail In Concert

Supported by: Hector Shaw/ Scout

Pictish Trail, the alias of Scottish pop sensation Johnny Lynch, has resolutely furrowed his own path, steadily creating a unique catalogue of recordings and performances, while eschewing the blueprint of the predictable singer-songwriter in favour of something untidily intriguing.

In 2020 Pictish Trail’s new album, ‘Thumb World’, was released on Fire Records to critical and commercial acclaim. Bold, weird, wild, wired, sonically luxurious yet never losing touch with its DIY-‘til-I-die roots, ‘Thumb World’ is a voyage to the outer rings of Pictish Trail’s mind at its darkest, funniest and most inventive – a plugged-in, fuzzed-out, f**ked-up contemplation on, as he puts it, “life repeating and gradually degrading, the inevitable cyclical nature of things, and the sense of there ultimately being no escape.

”Pictish Trail’s critically acclaimed first pair of albums were gloriously eclectic slices of lo-fi folk-pop, later revived as a deluxe double-vinyl in 2014 by Moshi Moshi.His third album ‘Future Echoes’ was released to further acclaim in September 2016, and went on to be shortlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year Award by popular vote. When not putting out his own music as Pictish Trail, Johnny Lynch is a fulcrum of the British independent music community.
