Catmando is me. Alex Lindsay. A Northern Ireland-based electronic artist from Derry, with an eclectic range of influences including dreams, SNES music, cats and all manner of artists, both musical and none. I have taken to describing it as Slow-Fi, which is more a running joke than anything else, which came about from a previous band, which we found hard to categorize. Slow-Fi takes elements from dream pop, electronica, glitch music and shoegaze.
I played guitar in original rock bands for years and without one I felt a bit lost. I discovered that making electronic music could be done on my own and artistic visions could be realised in my own bedroom. It was like having a huge weight lifted from my chest.
I have recently recruited the help of a few of my friends; “Blind” Stuart Doonan on bass and the lovely Una Dunne on vocals. Both will feature in my upcoming releases and with the help of Stuart, I will now be able to play this project live.
I have remixed a number of artist's tracks and have also collaborated with fellow Irish musicians, GRIM, Joel Harkin and Avian Chase. I am always interested in new collaborations
