Bio

Goblin Prince’s supernatural Baroque Pop feels like being led through a young boy’s dream. Tragic and playful, the Spanish singer/songwriter blends medieval imagery, floral strings and 80s fantasy movie synthpop as he draws on his experiences as a queer youth, candidly exploring shame, identity and alienation. Influenced by a wide range of artists such as Regina Spektor, Lewis Carroll, The Knife and Kate Bush, Goblin Prince is ready to establish his own genre-bending pop kingdom.

His vision wasn’t always this clear. Mario Llana needed a drunken fall down the stairs and a lost tooth to receive the wake-up call he needed. Resolving to end a cycle of avoidance, he left the US for Berlin in 2015 to pursue self-discovery and a life of music.

Alone in the new city, his musical endeavours turned into a reflection of his own rootlessness. “I felt like a lamb in a wolf pack”, he explains on his first year in Berlin. “But in losing my confidence I became painfully aware of complexes I’ve had since I was a child. It feels like a second coming-of-age and I think that feeling’s bleeding into the songs.”

Nose-deep in Ableton, Llana began reformatting his anxieties into home recordings and in 2017 he teamed up with Israeli producer Oded K.dar, with whom he’s finishing his debut EP.
