ONR. Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 27 August 2017, ONR.

ONR. is the brainchild of singer-songwriter Robert Shields, from Dumfries & Galloway.

Shields spent some time state-side last year, touring and writing, and it has paid off, with the announcement that he’s signed a deal with the US branch of Capitol Records.

Drawing comparisons to the likes of Arcade Fire and Depeche Mode, new single Jericho is a synth-laden, electro-pop gem – catchy, and with interesting lyrics and some dark overtones. Early support comes from Los Angeles radio stations KCRW and KCSN and, in the UK, Clash Magazine and Jim Gellatly on Amazing Radio.

Produced by Mark Crew (Rag & Bone Man, Bastille), an EP is set for release later this year.
ONR. play the main stage at Electric Fields Festival on Friday. Watch a lyric video for Jericho at http://bit.ly/ONR-SoS and find more information at www.onrhq.com

THE COGNAC TWINS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 20 August 2017, The Cognac Twins

Dunfermline duo, Craig Anderson and Paul Connelly aka The Cognac Twins have a long history of gigging together, but only recently got round to recording an album.

Inspired by a trip to France, and dedicated to a French musician who died this year, it is a soulful collection of songs with a folky feel, with guest musicians providing double bass, viola and keyboards.

Recorded and produced by Liam Saunders at his Loopmaniac Studio in Dunfirmline, the eponymous album has already piqued the interest of Radio Scotland’s Roddy Hart, who played the track Bricks and Mortar. https://soundcloud.com/loopmaniac/bricks-and-mortar

The Cognac Twins follow their vinyl launch party at Dunfermline’s Firestation Gallery on 1 September, with slots at the Mary Queen Of Scots Festival (2 September), the Outwith Festival (8-9 Septmber) and a series of living room shows scheduled for October.
