The Pictish Trail - In Rooms

The second long-player from local alt.pop prodigy The Pictish Trail boasts more songs than some artists chalk up over an entire career.
Inspired by indie comedian Josie Long’s ‘100 Days To Make Me A Better Person’ endeavour, Pictish – aka sometime Silver Column Johnny Lynch – attempted to write a song a day late last year, and these are the odes which fill In Rooms.
Its 50 art-pop sketches, techno poems, electro vignettes and acoustic hymns each measure an all-too-brief 30 seconds, but they serve to spotlight the dramatic tension, warm emotion and melody that Lynch invests in his prolific work.
