C Duncan

A 26-year-old classically trained Glaswegian composer, Chris Duncan recorded his astonishingly pretty debut album, Architect, in his bedroom.

Cinematic dream pop brimming with complex, cascading arrangements and Duncan's own reedy, sweet vocals, Architect's bewitching beauty earned it a 2015 Mercury Prize nomination.  

Duncan's 2015 single "For (Autumn Rebuild)"—a reworking of his very first single, "For"—is a perfect mirror of the album itself: like cartwheeling through drifts of golden leaves on a hazy October afternoon.
