THE DEATH OF ROBOTNIK is the second studio album from Irish singer-songwriter Robotnik also known as Chris Morrin.
His debut album PLEASANT SQUARE was released in 2008, which was greatly received by the UK & Irish press and public. The buzz around his debut album soon scored the young Dubliner support slots with Crystal Castles and Laura Marling, and the video for his debut single 'People Walk Away' was quickly snapped up by MTV.
Possessed, unhinged and strikingly original, Robotnik channeled a more cosmic Motorpsycho, a more sporadic Smog and through a frenzied mix of lyrical lullaby’s and unforgettable live shows, had become one of the rare wonders of the Irish music scene.
After the curtain had fallen down over his debut release, THE DEATH OF ROBOTNIK is the next piece of work to surface. Written & recorded over the course of the winter of 2011, in a basement flat in Dublin, the album is about holding onto psychological control of the inner & outer self. It’s a snapshot of tougher times in Morrin’s personal life.
At the end of recording his Mother got ill and he also suffered a mental breakdown. All music in his life was put to aside.
It was mixed in 2012 in the infamous Funkhaus Studios, Berlin. Not being able to even face the idea of playing music publically again, Morrin ended up going on a deep reflective journey for the last 4 years in Berlin. It’s taken all this time for Morrin to even consider releasing such a harrowing reminder of his past.
THE DEATH OF ROBOTNIK is about the CHAOS that we so desperately fear. THE DEATH OF AN EGO
The result is 10 tracks which unearth a gateway to a new beginning.
