WOLFNOTE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 26 November 2017, Wolfnote

Paul Dennington is a rare talent who takes the DIY ethos to creative heights, setting himself apart from the herd with excellent self-directed videos, gigs in exotic locations and some great tunes to match.

After several years as the drummer (and producer) in Edinburgh band The Dark Jokes, Dennington is back with a solo project entitled Wolfnote and an eponymous album will be released on Thursday.

An atmospheric, sometimes haunting, collection of songs which a combine a slightly folky vocal style with electronic effects, acoustic guitars, harp and spacious bass, they are perfectly suited to Leith’s Ukrainian Church on Dalmeny Street, where the launch takes place on 7 December (click HERE for FREE tickets)

We also recommend checking out his videos shot in locations as far flung as Sao Paolo and Glencoe see http://bit.ly/PDVid1 and http://bit.ly/PDVid2

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.
