Connan Mockasin

Connan Mockasin’s an elusive character, sometimes hiding behind his long blond fringe, often keeping aloof, on the far side of his bohemian entourage. He co-writes songs with Charlotte Gainsbourg and has his songs remixed by members of The Horrors while he whirs away writing and recording his own material in London. His tour manager Sofia Karchi joins Connan as they speak with Nick Atkinson in a small Ponsonby bar ahead of his Radiohead supports here and in Australia.
