piglet is the solo project of Irish songwriter and producer Charlie Loane, born and raised in Belfast and based in South London.
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 writing with past project Great Dad, reflects themes of queer/trans experience, but with more of a personal focus.
Two collaboration tracks with friends Porridge Radio were released in February 2021 through the Secretely Canadian label, titled 'Let’s Not Fight!' and 'Strong Enough', ahead of the single 'mill' in April and 'dan's note' in September 2021.
His first single of 2022, ‘oan’ eschewed a pop structure and instead embarks on a glorious multi-melodic journey through time, memory and experience, channelled through Loane's idiosyncratic DIY production.
A live session produced by NTS Radio was released in late 2021, featuring a 9 piece live band including members of Goat Girl, Caroline and Leather.head.
New singles and EP forthcoming in summer and winter 2022 through London based label Blue Flowers (Nilufer Yanya, Westerman, Puma Blue). ‘oan' is released following strong support from Spotify (including the Fresh Finds, Lo-Fi Indie, Duvet Day & Out Now playlists), Matt Wilkinson at Apple Music 1, a place on NTS Radio's WIP development programme, and UK tour dates with Mercury Award nominated artist Porridge Radio.
