Connan Mockasins much anticipated debut album 'Please Turn Me Into The Snat' is now available in New Zealand and has already received rave reviews in 'The Listener, The NZ Herald, Radio NZ and many more to come

The standout album artwork and name has also been generating attention, and has even managing to inspire a mannequin display at the Cuba Street shop Mandatory, in Wellington.

The new album introduces the listener to the amazing world of Connan Mockasin - from cats with larger-than-life personalities, unicorns in uniform, to alter egos such as Don Dicaprio. It was written and recorded over 18-months, in East Sussex, UK and an abandoned haunted house in Wellington. (Get the album here now)
