Former SAMA winners Model Aeroplanes have returned with new music following a year away, with single 'Lover'.

Whilst that same sun drenched rhythm the band are synonymous with may remain within the roots of this track, instrumentals have matured alongside the band through the time they’ve been away, to deliver another charming summer soundtrack anthem to add to their already nostalgia inducing back catalogue.

Initiating a new chapter for the Dundee four-piece, they delve further into the funk infused composition their previous releases hinted at, to create a bittersweet, thoughtful track with a new rose-tinted aesthetics to match. 

Tour dates

Friday 16th June, 02 Academy 2, Oxford, UK

Sunday 18th June, The Cluny, Newcastle, UK

Friday 28th July, King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow, UK

Upcoming five-piece KOBA drop new track

FOLLOWING the release of previous single 'Rush' back in February and a string of local shows, it’s only right to follow that up with a track as brooding and razor sharp as 'Chase'.

The quintet, based across central Scotland, craft fragmented synth beats pieced together with clean cut vocals and pulsating drum beats to create a stimulating and panoramic sounding three-minute wonder.

Indigo Velvet release new single 'Mona'

Calypso drenched four-piece Indigo Velvet released new single Mona last week, amid headline shows and festival anticipation, the introduction to a fruitful Summer begins here with this three minute slice of harmonious vitamin C delivered reliably by the Edinburgh band. 

Despite being synonymous with a technicolour pop aesthetic, Mona defines an adolescent reverie Indigo Velvet continues to trademark so well. You’re launched head first into a shower of effervescent rhythm that’s hard to avoid, which backs a velvet rich vocal complemented by break-downs and slick chorus lines. Another assault on the senses to leave you bittersweet and longing for brighter, nostalgia fuelled days.

May tour dates:

Friday 5th May - PJ Molloys support OSKAR Braves, Deni Smith, Conall Adam

Saturday 6th May - The Garage (Attic Bar) support NOAH NOAH, and Flying By Mirrors

Walt Disco release debut single 'Jackets'

The five-piece have dropped their first track

Having only formed last September, the Glasgow quintet have already blazed their way through various local supports and headlines to finally release their first track.

As a collective still in its adolescent days, the undoubted stylings of new wave drench the very bones of each dynamic guitar riff and palpitating drum rhythm with unwavering catharsis.

The five-piece possess a dominating lead vocal, complimented by their clear knack for charismatic lyricism to present not only an optimistic introductory release but also pave the way for the anticipation of future releases.

Check out 'Jackets' now!

Lewis Capaldi - 'Bruises'

The track is the singer-songwriter's debut single

IF the talent of Lewis Capaldi hadn’t already been fully realised following nearly a decade's worth of work: consistent support slots, writing, recording and the selling out of venues without any releases to his name, it certainly will be with debut single 'Bruises'

Showing signs of genius both lyrically and vocally, charm can be found in a voice as tender as the heartache he speaks of, emotive yet wounding a sublime force to be reckoned with, accompanied only by the sedate enticement of piano keys.

'Bruises' provides three and a half minutes of aching soul that defines the significant progression of an artist who’s still in the infancy of what will be a shining career.

Lewis will embark on a U.K wide tour starting April which will culminate with his biggest Scottish headline to date at St Luke’s on 15th September. A captivating set, not to be missed!

LUCIA releases video for 'Saturday Is Dead'

The Glasgow girl is storming ahead in 2017

FROM the depths of a sweaty basement scene shines LUCIA. Amid disco balls and neon lighting rises this metal clad, self-assured cover girl of the modern age.

Ten months is all it’s taken for her debut EP to be released to the world, four anthems that simply define the life and times of a young musician in Glasgow. A dreamy exterior can’t deny Lucia’s dynamic stage persona, using a raw, cutting vocal to back a fusion of cathartic '60’s doo-wop riffs and contemporary garage beats.

The video channels a rose-tinted dreamscape accented with a fuzzy disco aesthetic alongside choreographed dancing and Saturday Night Fever-esque throwbacks to offer a stark contrast of the quintessential night out.

As taken from the Best Boy EP to display a representation of youth, both hopeless and anarchic, staying true to its Glaswegian roots. It was released towards the end of last year, assisted in part with words and production from ROXY AGOGO who also featured on this track, as released through Dead Beet Records.

These visuals may draw this introductory era to a close, marking the end of Lucia’s debut but it’s only just the beginning for this enigmatic musician.
