There’s a fab­u­lous wild ener­gy about the new Pic­tish Trail sin­gle Nat­ur­al Suc­ces­sor, bring­ing its joy­ous aban­don­ment from the rugged land­scapes of the remote isle of Eigg to fes­ti­val crowds this late sum­mer and beyond. Get out there, recon­nect with your soul and dance.

The stomp­ing five min­utes-long track announces itself with a steady drum­beat before launch­ing straight into full on dance mode, no mess­ing about. The back­drop of fuzz nev­er lets up but dri­ves a con­sis­tent beat, laid over with John­ny Lynch’s atmos­pher­ic and trib­al vocals. This is one hell of a love­ly record.

Nat­ur­al Suc­ces­sor is avail­able dig­i­tal­ly now, and a 12” vinyl release is avail­able Octo­ber 22, 2021 (feat. remix­es by Djan­go Djan­go and Mak­e­ness) and will be avail­able to pur­chase on Pic­tish Trail’s autumn tour open­ing for the Djan­gos around the UK. Then stocked in select inde­pen­dent shops from Octo­ber 22.

Nat­ur­al Suc­ces­sor is avail­able to pre-order online via Fire Records and Lost Map.
