Wornoc is the solo project of Conor Walsh, who is also the guitarist of Irish alt-punk band Versive.
Irish alt-electro artist Conor Walsh has shared 'Four Corners', the brand new single from his Wornoc project.
'Four Corners' celebrates the beauty of Ireland in minimalist instrumental journey. Oozing alt-electronic and downbeat elements, the track is led by emotive strings and sax, soft percussion, intimate plucks, and dreamy keys.
Speaking to Hot Press, Conor said the single was inspired by a trip he took around Ireland with a friend when restrictions were eased.
"'Four Corners' is an expression of how I felt when travelling to beautiful coastal points such as Malin Head and Mizen Head, along with hiking up Sugar Loaf and experiencing the Bray to Greystone walk for the first time" he explained.
"The track intentionally has a completely different vibe compared to my previous release ‘Signs’ which has a bit more of a darker tone. Given my experience on this trip was incredibly positive, I wanted to showcase a more upbeat and hopefully light in this tune. I can’t wait to play this live, I intend to get a big band for my headline show at Whelans Upstairs on 29th January."
These sites can be viewed in the upcoming music video shot by friend and collaborator, Oscar Hackett of Long-Lost Designs, which will be released in the coming weeks.
Having just formed in 2021, the Dublin based alt-electronic artist has been quickly championed the likes of Rock Sound and Hot Press magazine, along with gaining national and international airplay.
Known for his work as guitarist for alt-punk band Versive, Wornoc has also collaborated with highly respected artists such as 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.
Wornoc will play a number of live shows next year, including a night at Whelans Upstairs on January 29th. Tickets are available here.
