Connan Mockasin is a psychedelic pop musician from Te Awanga, New Zealand.
Connan Mockasin released their first album “Please Turn Me into the Snat” in 2010 on Phantasy, and in 2011 on Because Music. The album reached No. 39 on the New Zealand album charts, and received glowing reviews from critics including NME and Drowned in Sound. It was also shortlisted for the 2011 Taite Music Prize.
On 28 March 2011 the album was re-released as 'Forever Dolphin Love' with a live bonus disc on Phantasy and Because Music. Mockasin has received favorable reviews for his unusual sound and musical style.
Connan Mockasin's second album 'Caramel' arrived on Phantasy/Because Music in 2013. He describes the record as a concept playing off his last LP, “It starts with the dolphin leaving, and the boss who is so in with love with the dolphin is sad, and then it kicks into the new album, and he is happier. But there’s a car race and a crash.”
