In fact, 18-year-old multi-instrumentalist Robert Downie is all about deception – "Illusions and mind trickery" serve as inspiration for the rich soundscapes and rippling textures of his work.
Bobby’s latest single ‘My Mind Is Already Gone’ nails this to a tee. Sitar twangs and celestial synths underpin Downie's swirling vocals in a psychedelic slow-jam reminiscent of Connan Mockasin and Tame Impala.
‘My Mind Is Already Gone’ is the first enchanting glimpse of a forthcoming EP. Given Bobby's prolific output and marked progression since last year's debut LP Flick My Switch, a sophomore release in 2015 is sure to see him stake a claim among Australia's most promising young talents.
Certainly one to keep an eye on, if nothing more.
