Trout is the creative alias of 23 year old Cesca – who spent their childhood years growing up in Copenhagen, born to an Iranian father and British mother.
Their early musical memories are of sibling rivalries played out to the soundtracks of the Gipsy Kings and a worn out Suzanne Vega tape which emboldened their early love of songwriting. Their influences are therefore unsurprising, but by no means insignificant – with Trout nodding specifically to the poetic songwriting genius of Adrianne Lenker, the layered vocals of Warpaint, and Sorry’s seamless blend of post-punk with idiosyncratic electronic motifs. Carrying an undeniable charm and arriving in earnest, debut EP ‘Colourpicker’ is a testament to the magic that can happen when a musician goes with their gut – a striking early declaration from a compelling new talent.
