New sounds from Glasgow: “Doing some brilliant things up North with 2 ‘Breakout Track’ placements on Radio X / Xfm, plus plays on XFM Scotland, Amazing Radio, and BBC Scotland, Acrylic responsible for big, echoey indie-rock. There’s also an delightful almost psychedelic chorus to be enjoyed. There’s a bit of The National in there. There’s some School Of Seven Bells in there. And even a helping of Spirtualized in there. So basically if you’re into your big, chiming, indie rock, this could well be for you. Take a listen below.”
