Pictish Trail
It's a dreamy mixture of swirling electronics...

Pictish Trail is often filed away in the box marked 'Bearded Scottish Folkie Songwriter' types, and it's easy to see why.

After all, he claims each of those categories, with much of the Scottish artist's work as a songwriter containing a rich vein of folk influence.

Yet there's also a side to Pictish Trail that wants to get down and boogie, fusing electronics with his potent artistic voice - we're thinking of his 'Winter Home Disco' release, or even his work as Silver Columns.

Sharing a new remix, Hot Chip producer Joe Goddard has jumped on board, re-working the songwriter's plaintive 'Who's Coming In'.

An expansive, dreamy take on the original, the swirling electronics have a slightly poignant feeling, a bittersweet mixture with an emotive impact.

Tune in now.

Catch Pictish Trail on tour with Belle & Sebastian in Europe later this month.
