  • C Duncan

    Indie Pop

    Christopher Duncan, who performs as C Duncan, is a Scottish composer and a multi-instrumentalist whose classical music upbringing seeps into his sophisticated, billowy indie pop creations. Raised in Glasgow by two classical musicians, Duncan studied piano and viola before taking up guitar, bass and drums in his teens, eventually studying music composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

    Set for release via FatCat Records on March 29th, C Duncan’s highly anticipated third album sees the Scottish multi-instrumentalist ditch his bedroom studio and work with other producers, engineers and musicians for the first time. “This was the biggest shift in dynamic for me,” he explains, “having always worked alone, it was a daunting prospect but one I knew I had to explore.” Navigating themes of love, anxiety and sexuality, ‘Health’ – produced by Elbow’s Craig Potter – is a deeply personal record that delves into a world Duncan had previously felt uneasy exploring. “Writing it was a very cathartic process. It helped me through a lot of tough times and also to celebrate the good,” he continues. Warm and harmonically rich, Duncan delightfully juxtaposes the vibrant and wholesome aesthetic of the album with an often-darker lyrical undertone, pushing himself to refine and explore new ways of writing. As the sole protagonist of his self-carved niche, ‘Health’ sees Duncan evolve and expand its parameters in mesmerising fashion.
