Scotland On Sunday, 19 June 2016, Modern Studies

The term supergroup tends to conjure up images of self-indulgent aging rockers, usually past their sell-by date.

However, Modern Studies are the exception, bringing together the combined talents of the amazing Emily Scott, the ubiquitous Rob St John, drummer/venue manager Joe Smillie and arguably Scotland’s most prolific cellist Pete Harvey. Carried by a piano melody and Scott’s captivating vocals, the band’s debut single Ten White Horses begins as an understated joy before building into a magical climax of quirky brilliance.

The single gives a taste of Modern Studies’ debut album, Swell To Great, which is released on Song, By Toad Records in September, and we predict it will be a contender for next year’s SAY Award.

Expect a bunch of dates to be announced soon and in the meantime listen to Modern Studies at https://modernstudiestheband.com/portfolio/sound-and-vision/

Scotland On Sunday, 12 June 2016, Bloodlines

A young quartet from Fort William, currently based in Glasgow, Bloodlines have played Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, ButeFest, Tenement Trail and secured airplay from the likes of Vic Galloway and Jim Gellatly.

The band kicked off 2016 with a sold out headline show at King Tuts, promoting the release of their debut EP ‘Love The Taste,’ and we witnessed the band deliver a flawless, high-energy set at last week’s XpoNorth Festival.

They play the T Break Stage at T In The Park on 8 July [selected by music industry judges from over 1,000 entries], with a pre-festival show at Glasgow’s The Hug & Pint on 5 July.
As part of Edinburgh Festival Fringe they also perform at the Electric Circus on 25 August.

Watch the video for their blistering new single ‘Skeletons’ below or at: https://youtu.be/wtF3-Qw-kgQ
