FOGGY CITY ORPHAN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Glasgow quartet, Foggy City Orphan combine family members with school friends – brothers John and Paul McLinden on guitar and vocal duties, and Michael Valente on bass and Stephen Sweeney on drums.
Taken from their debut album, which was produced by Paul Savage (Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand, Arab Strap), the band release excellent new single Fake News Blues on 9 October. It’s a short, sharp slice of topical indie/rock social commentary, poking fun at Trump and fake news in general.
The single has gained airplay from Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, Billy Sloan via BBC Radio Scotland and they played XpoNorth and TRNSMT Festivals earlier this year.
Catch them live on 26 October when they headline a BBC Introducing gig at Glasgow’s King Tuts.
