The first Donky Pitch release of 2015 is a debut on the label from Brighton based Mount Bank. Out 9th March ‘Island Life’ features five original tracks of classically influenced electronic music that calls on melancholic piano lines brushed up against bright synth melodies, intricate percussive movements and a restless energy that runs through each composition.

Outside of this he is a member of the Physics House Band (signed to Blood & Biscuits), playing shows across Europe with acts like Jaga Jazzist, Deerhoof and Alt J.
