Whimsical Wannabe Snat

“Behind the tomfoolery, the chap who appears to have stumbled off the set of Withnail and I is making some of this year’s boldest music,” Guardian reviewer Dave Simpson writes about Connan Mockasin’s Manchester performance at The Deaf Factory. “With shimmering guitars, rubbery basslines, inventive percussion and Mockasin’s childlike, almost feminine vocals, no one sounds quite like the New Zealand-born new prince of psychedelic whimsy. It is hard not to be drawn into Mockasin’s weird and wonderful world of beautiful noise and skewed pop songs called things such as Please Turn Me Into the Snat.” Simpson gives Mockasin 4 out of 5.
