Single review

Xan Tyler

Vicky (Foxstar)

This was released late last year and is a twangy of guitar and breathy of vocals track



Stanley Odd

Where They Lie (Handsome Tramp)

A welcome return for The Odd in 2020 and they are pulling no punches…



Tom McGuire and the Brassholes

Caveman / Battle Weapons (labelname)

The Brassholes have quickly made their name as one of Scotland’s finest funk/soul collectives, tearing it up at multiple live gigs last year with an all-out brass assault.

The Wild Places

Fear City (Remote)

Glasgow trio The Wild Places have absorbed some great pop-punk influences



Kohla

_Gorgeous (Last Night From Glasgow)

The first single of 2020 (following a brace last year including July’s ‘Touch‘)



Kleopatra

Ukiyo (KLEOPATRA)

Be Charlotte

Rumours Don't Work (Columbia)

A new single by Be Charlotte, now on a major label



The Cherry Dolls

Girl Afraid

Dutch Courage (Kycker)

With my love of indie rock, this energy-filled anthem from Yorkshire based 4 piece Girl Afraid caught my ear immediately.



Loudmammoth

In Blue (Last Night From Glasgow)

This combo is from North East England and their jangly and catchy pop is immediately appealing
