A founding member of Animal Collective, Lennox burst onto the scene in 2007 with his third solo record, ‘Person Pitch’. It would go on to inspire and influence the sounds of independent electronic music for the next decade. In turn, the record’s artwork gave credit to the sounds that influenced its creation, directing listeners to dig deep on everyone from Ariel Pink and The Kinks to Joni Mitchell and Aphex Twin.
A wildly prolific songwriter, Lennox went on to release ‘Tomboy’ in 2011 on his label, Paw Tracks, before signing with Domino to release 2015’s ‘Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper’ and a string of EPs, most recently ‘A Day With the Homies’ this past January. Now based in Lisbon, he’s toured the world performing at festivals and collaborating with the likes of Daft Punk, Pantha Du Prince and Atlas Sound. And he’ll be bringing this teeming back catalogue – along with something brand new – when he sets out on his first run of Australian headline dates this summer.
