Released: 21st Feb 2020


A kaleidoscopic and electronically explosive soundtrack for an imagined 80’s arcade game centred on our most opposable of digits – the thumb!

Bold, weird, wild, wired, sonically luxurious yet never losing touch with its DIY-‘til-I-die roots, Thumb World is a voyage to the outer rings of Pictish Trail’s mind at its darkest, funniest and most inventive – a plugged-in, fuzzed-out, fucked-up contemplation on, as he puts it, “life repeating and gradually degrading, the inevitable cyclical nature of things, and the sense of there, ultimately, being no escape”

FFO: King Creosote, Animal Collective, Hot Chip “sounds as though it’s being played on an ‘80s games console on the point of exploding” 8/10 - Uncut
