STORM THE PALACE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 23 April 2017, Storm The Palace

If there were a musical equivalent to slow food then it would be Storm The Palace, whose debut album, Snow, Stars and Public Transport was written over a nine-year period while Edinburgh-born singer Sophie Dodds was living in London.

With lyrics capturing snapshots of her life in the Big Smoke, its blend of styles incorporating strings, vocals which nod to Kirsty McColl, the occasional mandolin and the keyboard genius of the ubiquitous Ruben Taylor.

The band’s five members are split between London and Edinburgh, and are signed to US label Abandoned Love Records, which releases the album on 12 May. They begin a tour in London on 6 May, finishing with dates in Glasgow’s Glad Café (13 May) and Edinburgh’s Wee Red Bar (14 May).

A musical feast worth tucking into, Storm The Palace have created one of the best albums this year.

DECLAN WELSH & THE DECADENT WEST Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 16 April 2017, Declan Welsh & The Decadent West

Declan Welsh & The Decadent West are a punk band with strong pop influences hailing from East Kilbride.

Guaranteed to appeal to lovers of The Clash, they’ve supported artists including; The Proclaimers, Ocean Colour Scene, Eddi Reader and Glasvegas, performed at BBC 6 Music Festival in Glasgow last month and were one of only 120 UK bands, to be selected for Glastonbury Festival’s Emerging Talent competition (whittled down from many thousands).

Welsh’ songwriting covers everyday frustrations, suburban boredom, social commentary and politics. It’s refreshing to discover an artist with genuine integrity and something relevant to say – Welsh and band are a must see.

They play a FREE gig on Friday at The Liquid Rooms in Edinburgh for our Wide Days festival (click HERE for tickets) and at The Art School in Glasgow on 26 May.
