Bray, County Wicklow
ARACHIDONIC is the super-ego of Bray-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Trevor Albert Ledwidge.
After releasing 'In the Night Garden' under his post-rock alias Leylandii, Trevor decided to exorcise some daemons and incorporate elements of his shadow into a more direct and dramatic musical expression.
On October 31st, 2018… ARACHIDONIC unleashed 'In Flames' his debut EP. Setting out to shake up the primal energy of his beholders with a trinity of sound to rage against the dying of the light. One year later, the follow-up EP 'Ashes' was released where Trevor used Nietzschean affirmations to inspire an antidote to our turbulent times.
In 2020, amidst the madness of crowds... ARACHIDONIC's third EP 'We Mortals' will be released. Engineered by Sean Corcoran (Daithí/Le Galaxie/Kormac) and Mastered by Sam John (Justice/Boys Noize/Joris Voorn); Sofia is the first single off 'We Mortals' an ode to Ridley Scott's 'Gladiator'.
ARACHIDONIC is a frequent performer at Midnight City in Whelan's hosted by Michael Pope (Le Galaxie) and has supported fellow electronic producer EHCO in recent months.
The sound of ARACHIDONIC is a mix of aggressive beats and melodic hooks, with influences from electro and witch house.
