Solkatt are an Irish duo made up of Leo Pearson and Peter Lawlor.
Following on from their two single releases last year—"Je Suis" and "Nocturne"—the duo are prepping a debut album, made over the course of a year in the Irish countryside and birthed from 90 minutes of original music produced for a 46-speaker geodesic dome. The dome, which premiered at Electric Picnic 2017 as part of the RedBull Soundome Stage, was the catalyst for the music, which has now been reworked and reformatted into a cohesive album of melancholic electronics. With a penchant for hardware synths and body-moving grooves, Solkatt have crafted a collection of music that is subtly affecting and utterly danceable.
To give a taste of what's to come, the duo have offered up "Meridian," a slice of deep melancholic techno, as today's XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below.
