Having just formed in 2021, Dublin based alt-electronic artist wornoc (aka Conor Walsh) has quickly championed the likes of Rock Sound and Hot Press magazine, along with gaining national and international airplay. wornoc has also collaborated with highly respected artists; Andrew Marshall (Billie Eilish) and Justin Nace (PVRIS) on a live drum performance of his previous release ‘Signs’. Inspired by the sounds of artists such as Massive Attack, God Is An Astronaut, Tycho, Olafur Arnolds, and Bonobo, wornoc’s music is cinematic, intense and emotional. Driven by infectious grooves, lush ambient textures, melodic guitar riffs and electronic music, wornoc provides a spectacular sonic environment for introspections, sounds that are far removed from what’s going on in the Irish music scene.
Released on the 13th of July, wornoc celebrates the beauty of Ireland in minimalist instrumental journey ‘Four Corners’. Confined to his country during lockdown, Conor took off on an inspiring trip around Ireland visiting glorious coastal points such as Malin Head, Mizen Head and Belmullet, sites which can be viewed in his upcoming music video. Oozing alt-electronic and downbeat elements, ‘Four Corners’ is led by emotive strings and sax, soft percussion, intimate plucks, and dreamy keys.
“My mate Oscar Hackett and I took off on a spontaneous trip around Ireland for a few days with the intention to visit locations that we have never been to before such as Malin Head, Mizen Head and Belmullet. I always knew Ireland was a beautiful place but I never really properly explored it in this carefree kind of way. After coming home with a bursting array of inspiration, I began writing ‘Four Corners’. This track has a completely different vibe to my last single, it’s calming, emotional and hopeful. Over the next few weeks I will be releasing the official music video which is basically a short documentary of the trip, along with cool visuals created by Oscar.”
