OCEANCODE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 19 November 2017, OceanCode

Formed at the end of last year, OceanCode are a promising young folk/pop/Americana quartet with members from Aberdeen, Dumfries, Inverness and Glasgow.

In their short time together, they’ve supported international touring bands, (as well as artists we’ve featured in this column such as Mt. Doubt and NOAH NOAH), they’ve played King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival and frontwoman Ruth Gillies has toured Scotland as part of youth music project Hit The Road.

A chance meeting with Idlewild’s Rod Jones in Brighton earlier this year led to him inviting the band to record at his Leith recording studio. The result is the band’s excellent debut single Across The Room which is released on Friday. See OceanCode play live at a launch gig at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 30 November.

SUN ROSE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 12 November 2017, Sun Rose

Long-standing readers of this column might recall our enthusiasm for electronic outfit Nevada Base, whose track Love In My Mind was a firm favourite of 2011. So we were pleased to discover a musical phoenix had risen from the band’s ashes in the form of Sun Rose (not to be confused with Swiss duo SunRose or Australian outfit Sunrose).

Earlier this year their debut track, Smirk, was named single of the week on Radio Scotland’s Janice Forsyth show and the follow-up, Minima, is equally promising. Boasting a more atmospheric feel with dreamy vocals and attractive piano interludes, it also appears on the album The Essential Luxury, mixed by Miaoux Miaoux and released on vinyl by the discerning Last Night From Glasgow Records. Anyone ordering a copy from the label’s online shop, gets a free ticket for a special launch gig at Nice N Sleazy in Glasgow on Friday. Visit www.lastnightfromglasgow.com
