CONNAN MOCKASIN: FOREVER DOLPHIN LOVE – album released on Phantasy/ Because Music on March 21

The New Zealand born, current London resident Mockasin draws fans as diverse as Johnny Marr and Radiohead to Ed Banger chief and ex Daft Punk manager Pedro Winter into its wide-eyed, childlike exploration into the final frontiers of pop music. Written from start to finish one hot summer, while camped outside his parent’s church-like house in a tent, album “Forever Dolphin Love” is unique and beguiling.

This record (packaged with a special live recording) is, however, only the beginning for Connan – the next few months will see him scoring the first short film from acclaimed video director Kinga Burza, called “Candy”. In addition, alongside the likes of Villagers and Noah and the Whale, Connan has also been working on new music with the inimitable Charlotte Gainsbourg, with a brand new collaboration set to appear on a “live and unreleased” edition of her album in the summer, and he has also been working with Sam Eastgate of Late of the Pier on an offbeat upcoming project called Soft Hair. Conan has also been confirmed as main support on Warpaint’s UK tour in May.
