Trying to listen to this track BM got tied up in knots by f*cking Spotify – it really is a frustrating platform to transfer between devices and can truly seem like the work of the devil… (huh, try being an artist on it – musicians everywhere)
Anyway, Livingston-based Dictator have had some good notices recently and this is their most recent track, referencing a particular street in Auld Reekie that BM was very familiar with once upon a time.
The overall vibe of this track is quite ambitious, quite powerpop, but mid-tempo, with some interesting layered sounds, sophisticated in fact. Unfortunately the curse of Spotify meant not only did BM get loads of adverts (despite the “premium” subscription), also the “suggested song” feature kicked in with some really random tracks…
Oh well – the Dictator track sounded good and BM will try to pursue this lot in a more relaxed format next time… (it’s not available on Bandcamp, so good luck with that – Ed)
