FOREIGNFOX Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 2 July 2017, Foreignfox

Foreignfox are a five-piece indie-rock band from Dunfermline.

They released their excellent new EP ‘I Used To Be a Bellydancer’ on 12-inch vinyl via Scottish Fiction Records on Friday, picking up airplay from Vic Galloway on BBC Radio Scotland, Amazing Radio and BBC Radio nan Gàidheal. It’s also currently streaming on the Scottish Alternative Music Awards website http://bit.ly/Foreignfox-SAMAs

Jonny Watt’s emotional, raw vocals and Scottish-twang showcase authentic lyrics, with the music often gradually building towards gloriously epic choruses.

Foreignfox play today at Edinburgh’s Assai Records, with a headline set in Glasgow as part of King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival on 20 July. Other dates include Blackthorn Festival in Stockport on 22 July, a Nordoff Robbins Scotland fundraiser at Glasgow’s ABC on 19 August and Edinburgh’s The Voodoo Rooms on 15 October.

FUTURE GET DOWN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 25 June 2017, Future Get Down

One of the highlights of the recent XpoNorth showcase in Inverness, was a packed gig featuring two men dressed in bee-keeper outfits, with an additional three musicians providing a range of additional instrumentation. The band in question, Future Get Down, were formed by bassist Ally Dennis and award-winning brewer Oli Kass.

Both were in Edinburgh electro-groove outfit Homework and their new musical vehicle ploughs a similar furrow, albeit enhanced by the vocals of percussionist Jeanne Laidlaw. This winning combination is exemplified on the recently-released track, End Of The World After Party http://bit.ly/FGDUTR
With a handful of cool shows already under the belt, including at Edinburgh’s Caves and the Stag & Dagger Festival, the band’s next scheduled live outing is at the Electric Fields Festival. By then, we expect the other three bee keeper outfits will have finally arrived.
