BooHooHoo have been making waves on the Glasgow scene for several months now, hitting the mark with an explosive blend of 80s pop, funky guitar and an occasional burst of disco.

Since playing King Tut’s Summer Nights, the four-piece have been busy in the studio, with Prides’ Lewis Gardiner working his mix magic on the band’s debut EP, fittingly titled DebutHooHoo. Due to get a live launch at Nice’n’Sleazy in Glasgow on Wednesday, it is officially released on Last Night From Glasgow Records on Friday.

Catering for the collector, the label has created a limited edition USB bracelet containing the tracks Now Is The Season, Dreams Tonight and Mould Me. The latter comes with a promo video which premiered this month and can be viewed at:

DENI SMITH Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

We first encountered singer-songwriter Deni Smith performing at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival in August on her 19th birthday. The musician started out performing covers on YouTube and gradually began gigging live around Fife.

She’s played the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, supported more established artists such as Fatherson, Mull Historical Society, Sinderins and Model Aeroplanes and recently released a single, Bring Back The Sun, which is bound to get stuck in your head thanks to the catchy singalong chorus.

She tours this week as part of youth music initiative Hit The Road, headlining at home on Friday at PJ Molloy’s in Dunfermline, followed by gigs at The Stove in Dumfries and Oran Mor in Glasgow, with Elia Davidson and Rebekah Kirk.
