EDWIN ORGAN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
The death of a rosemary plant is an unlikely inspiration for a song about loss, but then Edwin Organ is no ordinary artist.
Originally hailing from Dunfirmline, where he spent several years recording house tracks, his move to Glasgow has led to decidedly left-field take on electronica.
This is particularly evident on the ode to the culinary herb, titled Serenade, which sees a pacey rhythm and engaging double bassline, underpin a vocal style which will remind older listeners of OMD and the younger musical connoisseurs, of C Duncan.
Already attracting interest from big record labels and booking agents, not to mention Swedish House Mafia’s Axewell, he will be in session on Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway show on 13 February and is expected to play live as a three piece act, around the same time.
