We’re delighted to premiere the immersive and trippy visuals from Abbacaxi’s latest track ‘Used To Keep Me Warm’.
Thomas Garnett AKA Abbacaxi may not have a huge catalogue of music on streaming services, but that doesn’t mean he’s a spring onion. Cutting his teeth in the local gig circuit for a number of years, he became a sought-after commodity following his time spent as a session musician.
However, the Dublin multi-instrumentalist has stepped out from the shadows and moved front and centre in the past 12 months. Confident marrying various distinct styles, he has a formula that is described succinctly in his Twitter bio as “Guitar music for house fans.”
His latest release ‘Used To Keep Me Warm’ leans on his bubbling vocals and its pulsing percussion is a welcome injection of energy for the colder months.
The video and animation come courtesy of Des Garvey and sees Abbacaxi enter a trippy vaporwave-like universe. Made up of warm and vibrant colours, the music literally breaths life into the vibrating outer walls of the otherworldly settings.
A confident multi-instrumentalist, Abbacaxi’s pulsing new effort is the synthesis of styles he’s experimented with throughout his career. It follows the release of singles ‘Got To Move On’ and ‘Snow Dance’ that dropped in 2019.
