Jack Colleran doesn't sleep, and it shows. The 18-year-old producer, who goes by the name MMOTHS, has embraced endless nights and bags beneath his eyes in exchange for something more; a uniquely ethereal sound that's entirely his own. Disregarding genre conventions, the Ireland-based artist and producer mesmerizes with sparse synths dripping in reverb, transforming digital soundscapes into organic songs, equally fit for both a night on the town and one spent indoors in the company of candlelight.

MMOTHS (not to be confused with MMOSS) is currently on his first North American tour that hits NYC tonight (6/19) at Glasslands with Young Yeller, Jacob 2-2, and Cult Fever (tickets). He'll play again on Wednesday (6/20) at Mercury Lounge, opening for The Hundred in the Hands and tickets for that show are still available.
