‘Up to the surface’ – Penji EP reviewed by Journal of Music

Leading Irish publication The Journal of Music have written an extremely positive review of my Penji EP! Here’s a nice extract:

“Adopting the name of Penji for his solo project, Hackett appears to have taken his most interesting musical digression…in the process (Penji) has created a groove-laden sound that is augmented by weighty beats, shimmering processed guitar and warm synths. These are songs to reward repeated listens as various elements seep up to the surface and reveal themselves..
With this EP, Penji has revealed a knack of merging the ecstatic with the downbeat.”

A friend of mine AKA Black Tongue Visual Media, made a beautiful video about me recently. It was the first in a series of featurettes on creative people in Galway and further afield.
