For fans of… Børns, Passion Pit, Phoenix, MGMT
Channelling euphoric, feel good indie pop, Dundee quartet Model Aeroplanes return to form with their new single, Lover.
Following on from their successful debut EP Something Like Heaven released on Island Records, the 4-piece make a welcome return into the spotlight.
Friends for life and band mates since they were 13 – Rory Fleming-Stewart, (Vocals, Guitar), Grant Irvine (Lead Guitar, vocals), Ben Buist (Bass) and Kieran Smith (drums, vocals) have achieved notable success for a band so young and their new single indicates an impressive progression.
New single, Lover is a surefire summer anthem, with its outright hedonistic melodic hooks, sky-scraping falsettos and catchy chorus; this is a dazzling re-emergence that will place the band firmly amongst their more established peers.
Model Aeroplanes have received airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Phil Taggart, Alice Levine, BBC Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway, XFM’s John Kennedy and BBC Radio 6 Music’s Tom Robinson. They have enjoyed press from Clash, The Line of Best Fit and The Herald. They have also graced the stages of Open Air Gampel in Switzerland, Bergen Fest in Norway, Way Back When in Dortmund, Where’s The Music? In Sweden, Indiependence Festival in Ireland, T in the Park, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Kendal Calling, Dot To Dot.
