Biography

Trophy Boyfriend is Gregor, his guitar, a Vox AC30, a PC, several pedals in various states of disrepair and a fistful of soft-synths. He makes music to block out the noise of rain hammering against his apt. window in Rathmines.

Debut EP was released in December 2009. Following this, the Distant Chimes EP was released in May 2010 and is available for FREE download from bandcamp.

Trophy Boyfriend's latest single 'Feels Like Autumn' was released in May to positive reviews.

To coincide with the Eurovision this year he produced an unofficial remix of Jedward's 'Lipstick' which received a warm response from both electro and pop fans alike.

'apartment-sized slo-mo, hazy shoegazelectronica'
- Jim Carroll, Irish Times

‘Distant Chimes, the title track has a hazy electro with big synths and thumping drums....So is this Ireland’s first chillwave tune? Carles to comments please!.’ - Nialler9.com

'For fans of Washed Out, Neon Indian and Deloreon, it's essential listening' - Ragged Words

'Chillaxed electro from Irish producer Trophy Boyfriend. It's got a rich synth, 80's pop feel about it, not unlike Cut Copy or Tiga.' - Pop Goes The Radio
