piglet is the solo project of Irish songwriter and producer Charlie Loane, born and raised in Belfast and based in South London. His new seven songs EP is a collection of tracks that detail his experien- ces of mental health, substance abuse, affirmations of self-identity, trans experience and friendship. The EP includes re-recordings of previously released solo singles ‘mill’, ‘dans note’ and ‘oan’; songs which lead to a deal with London label Blue Flowers (Puma Blue, Nilüfer Yanya, Westerman) in early 2022.
These songs were captured in a live session by NTS Radio of piglet’s ex- panded 9 piece band featuring members of Goat Girl and Caroline. piglet released his first EP alex’s birthday in February 2020 on South London DIY label Double Dare, a warm set of songs which, like his writ- ing with past project Great Dad, reflects themes of queer/trans experi- ence, but with more of a personal focus. Two collaboration tracks with friends Porridge Radio were released in February 2021 through the Secretly Canadian label.
