THE EVER ECLECTIC SAMA’S ROUNDUP IS HERE FROM FOLK, TO GRIME, POP, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN!
HERE ARE TEN TRACKS HAND BY PICKED BY SAMA’S TEAM. SUBSCRIBE NOW TO THE SAMA’S SPOTIFY PLAYLIST.
Annie Booth - Magic 8
Laced with beautiful backing vocals, singer/songwriter Annie Booth’s magical performance on her newest single Magic 8 is nothing short of sublime. The Edinburgh based singer has had her praises sung by the likes of Tenement TV and The List for her melancholic take on the genre. A restrained and subtle track, Magic 8 is a reflective look on luck and life.
Chuchoter - U Can Find
This electro duo based in Edinburgh bring synth-pop dreams to life with latest release U Can Find, fresh from their Wide Days debut and festivals in their horizon, the future is sounding sweet for the pair!
Declan Welsh and The Decadent West - Absurd
Slowly but surely taking the country by storm with his sharp lyrics and powerful indie-rock, Declan Welsh and his band The Decadent West return with the lead single from their upcoming album. Reminiscent of golden-era Pulp combined with jaggier guitar lines, Absurd acts as a commentary to the discourse of modern life. Set to continue their rise to the upper ranks of the UK music scene, the group are well deserved to touch the skies.
Echo Machine - Chameleon
Another truly anthemic offering from the burgeoning Dundee scene brought to you by three-piece Echo Machine, backed by barraging drums and urgent vocal tones, panoramic sound made for crowd roars.
FAUNA - Creed
Within the first year of their formations, FAUNA have managed to take the Glasgow music hold with their striking performances. On Creed, the four-piece clash distorted guitars with blissful, chorus-laden verses. Powerful vocals take centre stage on the chorus allowing the band to stand out within the burgeoning Glasgow scene. Erupting in a wave of noise in the climax of the track, Creed is a force to be reckoned with.
Memes Music - Blah Blah Blah
First championed by radio legend Steve Lamacq, this Glasgow duo are already hitting the airwaves with their post-punk tinged debut single despite an otherwise elusive online presence, remaining an enigma their track speaks for itself.
HYYTS - Car Crash Carnivore
The Glasgow duo have grown ever synonymous with producing hard-hitting pop anthems and the latest single is no different. A serene soundscape of disco tinged synth layered amid thought-provoking word play and ethereal vocal stylings to make for a truly immersive listen.
Ransom Fa - Hungry
For the finest in Scottish grime look no further than Aberdeen’s own Ransom Fa, with an already mighty back catalogue on his hands, Hungry sees this take an incline, a positive sign of what’s to come for the young MC!
Roseanne Reid - Heading North
Coming from her debut album ‘Trails’, Roseanne Reid’s slice of Americana makes it hard to believe she’s Scottish. Heading North is almost something that could have come off a Steve Earle album, but Reid makes it her own with the distinct vocals she lays down. On top of the laid back slide guitars and organ, the singer creates a pocket of America.
Triptych - You Say Jump I Say How High
Packed full of energy this is an exciting first release of 2019 by Glasgow alternative rockers Triptych. Having just supported I Cried Wolf in Bar Bloc, the future looks bright for the trio, we are expecting to see Triptych on various festival bills this summer!
