BE LIKE PABLO Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 19 March 2017, Be Like Pablo

Few Scottish acts have mastered the Weezer art of creating the catchy tune like Forres’ finest, Be Like Pablo.

The band mine an inexhaustible seam of poptastic harmonies underpinned by new wave guitars and a keyboard sound which provides the icing on this melodious cake. Latest single, There She Is is no exception.

It was released on Friday and is accompanied by the type of video which would usually be limited to an act signed to a large label. According to frontman Ewen Watson, it is the embodiment of what he visualised when he wrote the song. Staring actress Jerry-Jane Pears (Survivor and The Royals), who comes to life on billboards and magazines, it was directed by Andrei Staruiala and is well worth a look and listen.
Be Like Pablo. play Edinburgh’s Mash House on 22 April. Definitely a date for the diary.

MT. DOUBT Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 12 March 2017, MT. DOUBT

MT. DOUBT began two years ago in Edinburgh as the solo project of singer-songwriter Leo Bargery, and is now a very promising sextet.

They release latest single ’Tourists’ through Scottish Fiction records on 31 March as a split 7’ vinyl alongside Dunfermline band Foreignfox (for their single Lights Off Carry Me Home).

Mt. Doubt have been on our radar for a while. They’ve played T In The Park, supported artists like White Lies and Admiral Fallow and Bargery’s distinctive vocals and accomplished songwriting have led to airplay on Roddy Hart’s BBC Radio Scotland show and BBC 6 Music.

See Mt. Doubt and Foreignfox perform live together on 7 April at Beat Generator in Dundee and 8 April at Nice ’N’ Sleazy’s in Glasgow. Support for both gigs comes from young Edinburgh quartet SKJØR who we featured last year. Listen to ’Tourists’ at https://soundcloud.com/mtdoubt
