THE MOTION POETS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 7 May 2017, The Motion Poets

Usually when we hear that a band has formed on a music course, it brings to mind jazz-funk noodlers or formulaic Glee-like horrors. Fortunately, The Motion Poets, four students at an Edinburgh Napier University – are the exception that proves the rule.

Professing a shared penchant for gig-going, discount beer-drinking and decorating their shared Edinburgh flat with street furniture, they apply their musical abilities to honing well-crafted rock, picking the good bits from the heavy guitars of the seventies, along with eighties grunge, nineties Britpop and noughties indies.

Their new single, One Too Many released on Friday, demonstrates they are certainly moving in the right direction. Released on Friday, listen here: http://bit.ly/2TMPUTR

The Motion Poets play Edinburgh’s Opium on 17 May and Glasgow’s Broadcast on 23 June.

MONKOORA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 30 April 2017, Monkoora

Monkoora is the musical moniker for producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer Julie Fern Crawford.

Her new six-track EP (seven including a radio edit of lead single ’Bocx Wurld’), was released last week via Glasgow-based artist management agency and record label Hot Gem.

The single has picked up radio support, while last year’s mini-LP, ‘Pale Slopes’ is on the eligibles list for this years Scottish Album of the Year award.

Monkoora creates bright bubble-gum electronica pop music, but with meaty lyrics exploring sexual politics, and philosophy.

We highly recommend seeing Monkoora live as part of Edinburgh’s Hidden Door Festival on 3 June.
