Songwriter, electronic musician and multi instrumentalist Trick Mist (Gavin Murray) presents a beautiful live performance video shot on Christian’s Hill, Ardee. The Pizza Pizza Records produced video sees the electronic artist performing in his favourite field.
Featured is a new song ‘Flagbearer’ along with a new version of older song ‘Crumbs Abound’.
In Murray’s words-
The song Flagbearer was written after my Nan’s wake. It was such a mad time returning to her home house. I hadn’t been there in so long and I was confronted by memories of the place mixed with the whirlwind intensity of a traditional Irish wake. A wake is a great Irish ritual. I reckon it’s something we do well. The song is an ode to that as well as to her. The hill in the video is called Christian’s Hill. I used to love coming over here as a kid. The structure’s function seems unclear. Some people say it was a lookout post, others say a mill for flax or flour. Another theory is that the hill was a place of worship or ritual. This is the theory I like the most! So I’ve decided to create my own ritual here today with my flag, my art and my experience in a place that resonates.
