Primarily a composer, Páll Ivan’s lo-fi pop output is something of an accident. After suffering a mental breakdown, Páll started creating music in his studio as a therapeutic exercise—“like colouring in.”
To his surprise, people were transfixed by the outcome.
It’s incredibly eccentric music that flips between genres from song to song, from bassy trap to psych-pop to what sounds like medieval court music played on keyboard presets. Irreverent, surreal and bizarre, it makes Ariel Pink seem conservative—there’s nothing quite like this.
