Pikelet returns with Tronc + new video + launch announced

Melbourne exploratory art-synth performer Pikelet returns with album-length recording Tronc, to be released on cassette and digital by Chapter Music on Friday May 6.

Over the years Pikelet has gone through numerous permutations, all centred around the indomitable Evelyn Morris, now recognised as one of the most adventurous and compelling voices in Melbourne music.

Tronc follows on from full-band efforts Calluses (2013) and Stem (2010) but sees a return to the solo format of early Pikelet recordings, with each of the tape’s eight songs recorded and performed by Evelyn at home.

Noisey have also just premiered a video for Tronc track The Neighbour’s Grass, directed by Ece Yavuz and featuring a full 3D render of Evelyn’s head! Check out the premiere here and the video below.

You can pre-order Tronc now from the Chapter webstore or Bandcamp and get an immediate download of The Neighbour’s Grass.

The launch is Saturday May 21 at Hugs & Kisses with Ninetynine and Suss Cnts. Event page here!
