Chris Pellnat - 'Cairn'

7/10

Throughout his tenure to date, US singer-songwriter Chris Pellnat has looked to establish himself as one of more varied and inventive names doing the rounds. Turning out a fresh and exciting array of delights almost every year since 2017, he has spent much of these last few years building a distinctive direction for himself, one that looks to explore a multitude of ideas and textures throughout. And with a flurry of standalone singles last year, he now returns to share his latest studio album 'Cairn', a record brimming with more of that adventurous spirit he is known for.

As an artist that prefers to perform all of the instruments himself, 'Cairn' is instantly recognised as an extremely cohesive and succinct release. With Pellnat's warm and invigorating vocal style spread across this rich and illuminating atmosphere from beginning to end, this new ten-track collection builds upon the immersive energy he has delivered in the past, and introduces us to a broader and more diverse listen this time around.

The one-man-band aesthetic certainly suits his appeal here, as 'Cairn' creates this beautifully arranged ebb and flow that sits wonderfully with his own captivating persona. Warm and inviting throughout, Chris Pellnat continues to rise as a true visionary on the new music scene right now.
