New video for track from reissued Secret Soundz albums' release

We've previously reported the double whammy of Eigg-based excellence been dealt out by The Pictish Trail this year: on July 18-20, he and his Lost Map label will be hosting the first Howlin' Fling festival on their home island, with a full complement of roster acts alongside Alexis Taylor, Luke Abbott, Beth Orton and more. Before then, on June 9, he'll be reissuing his Secret Soundz Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 albums, via London's Moshi Moshi. To whet your appetites for the latter, Johnny Lynch, for TPT is he, has kindly given us a first look at Alan Cameron and Ben Cowie's new video for Vol. 2 cut, 'Wait Until', a tender, hazed piece of ambient pop, weighed down with the heft of sadness and loss that comes from being the first song that Lynch wrote after his mother passed away.

TPT is currently in the middle of a UK tour with the Lost Map showcase, which sees him joined by Tuff Love and Monoganon, stopping at Cambridge's Junction 2 tonight. For full details of that, head here, watch 'Wait Until' above and download 'I've Been Set Upon', also from Vol. 2, for free below.
