Carrignavar, County Cork
Cork based "Mechner" released debut single "Surfacing" in late 2016, with accompanying music video.
"Surfacing" was featured in the INDIE CORK FILM FESTIVAL. A powerful piece of surrealist work, talking about humanity meeting technology, and the lines that are beginning to blur. "Surfacing" has been described as "David Lynch meets Radiohead".
Mechner is a new Cork based Artist, characterised as "Radiohead meets David Lynch" (John Loftus - 8 Radio), completely self-funded and self-produced, Mechner had great success with debut single "Surfacing", notable for its music video which garnered over 25k views and was included in Indie Cork's Film Festival to great crowd reaction. Apt considering Mechner's debut launch show, it was held in an old converted Art-house cinema.
The marriage of cinematic visuals and sound is a huge aspect of what makes Mechner unique, once described by none other than Morrissey of Smiths fame as "Simply brilliant...". Mechner is a self confessed "perfectionist" that could be likened to a Director of Film overseeing every aspect of sound, style and visual, with an exacting eye, everything has an extra layer, and is crafted to have more than one way of appreciating the artistry. Mechner has supported the likes of Dermot Kennedy, Delerentos and The Coronas amongst many others. Late 2020 will see the release of debut mini-LP "Club Idem" a project shrouded in mystery, shaping up to be a very important release for the budding young artist, indeed.
