“A real hero of the Scottish underground scene” Huw Stevens

Throughout his career Pictish Trail 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.

2020 saw the release of PT's new album, Thumb World. 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, fucked-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.”

When not putting out his own music as Pictish Trail, Johnny Lynch is a fulcrum of the British independent music

community. Through his label Lost Map Records, he champions a diverse and idiosyncratic array of extraordinary

talent and has helped to elevate the likes of Rozi Plain, Seamus Fogarty, Bas Jan, Callum Easter and Free


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.
