STATIC UNION Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 11 December 2016, Static Union

Although still in their teens, Static Union have amassed a healthy amount of music experience, with frontman Sean penning his first songs at the tender age of 12 and bandmates Liam and James growing up playing in the same function band as their fathers.

Formed two years ago while still at school in Glasgow’s South Side, the four-piece have already played some of the city’s more prestigious grassroots venues including Stereo, Broadcast, St Luke’s and the now defunct Arches.
The band have given us an exclusive preview of their debut single, Turn Out The Lights, released at the end of next month listen at: https://soundcloud.com/static_union/turn-out-the-lights

Driven by a pacy guitar sound, it is set to be accompanied by a video featuring professional dancer Joanna Pirrie. In the meantime, check out Static Union at Glasgow’s Broadcast on Thursday – we expect great things.

Scotland On Sunday, 4 December 2016, Dancing On Tables

Hailing from Dunfermline, young five-piece outfit Dancing On Tables have picked up plenty of praise across the blogosphere and recently completed an unusual tour of shopping centres to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Their latest EP, a brilliant collection of bright, vibrant indie-pop songs which is officially self-released on Friday, was produced by George Shilling, whose credits include artists such as Primal Scream, Steve Winwood and Ocean Colour Scene. The band play a free-entry gig at the Electric Circus in Edinburgh on Tuesday with support from Lost In Vancouver and Akrobat. They perform at home in Dunfermline on 6 January at PJ Molloys.
