Dogtanion is the musical guise of Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau, a musician, filmmaker and artist based in London.
Matthew’s musical roots stem from a variety of styles and genres, encompassing UK Garage, Electronica and folk. His diverse scope has resulted in him producing a unique approach to Folk music and has led to him performing alongside Lil Silva, Elijah & Skilliam and Anneka at The Nest in London last month.
As a debut album, ‘JAPAN’ is steeped in creativity. Opener ‘Beast And The Boots’ ebbs qualities reminiscent of Grizzly Bear, whilst ‘Bastard Son’ reveals Matthew’s more experimental electronic side.
As an artist, Matthew is part of the ARKA Group, an arts collective working in film and installation. Having made films for Ideastap and Cornerhouse, Matthew is currently working on a short film to be screened later this year.
Get lost in the surreal world of this modern day poet and take a journey to ‘Japan’, his debut album released in August through Tape Club Records.
