The 11 track album features a lot of exciting collaborations with Scottish songwriters such as Lizabett Russo, Pete Harvey, Steven Milne, Iona Fyfe and many more. Out now on Aberdeen’s Fitlike Records.
Carla J Easton - Wanting What I Can’t Have
Teasing releases from an upcoming solo album, Carla J Easton, also known for TeenCanteen amongst other projects, is back with another single! True to form you can expect a synth drenched track backed by those now trademark vibrant vocal stylings.
Free Love - Synchronicity
Making a fresh return with a fitting name change, revelling in the aftermath of an explosive set at The Great Escape last month, this track poses a positively cosmic soundscape, prescribing a much needed injection of unadulterated dance-pop from the Glasgow duo.
Modern Studies - Disco
The Perth four-piece have produced a hauntingly exquisite track perfectly contrary to what its name may suggest, though overwhelmingly folk infused, hints of jazz peek through with the incorporation of brass instrumentation to form the most ethereal track that will leave you wanting more!
Sicly - Redy
Another new guise was formed this month as Glasgow’s Forever made their return with an interesting new release and name to match! Two and a half minutes of disjointed synth pleasure to leave you with nothing but intrigue, a very warm return for this trio!
Solareye - All These People Are Me
This solo debut full length may have taken years in the making but it’s been well worth the wait for this brutally honest take on all things socially, politically and personally aware, whose undeniable passion for the cause cannot be questioned!
Sweaty Palms - Transit Paul
From the band whose back-catalogue is as allusive as their stage presence, following recent dates across the country, the start of the month saw them release new single Transit Paul shamelessly adding to the ever-menacing production styling they’ve grown to hone well. You can catch them play at Stereo in Glasgow on 9th June, in support of their debut album which is released on 8th June on Nice Swan Records.
Tracyanne & Danny - It Can't Be Love Unless It Hurst
Tracyanne & Danny is a collaborative project between Tracyanne Campbell, singer and songwriter in celebrated Glaswegian indie band Camera Obscura, and Bristol’s Danny Coughlan (Crybaby). The track ‘Alabama’ also features guest vocals by Edwyn Collins who also produced the album, alongside Sean Read (Dexys). We’ve picked out “It Can’t Be Love Unless It Hurts” enjoy!
