STARS AND SITARS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 28 August 2016, Stars And Sitars

Released on cassette and digital download earlier this month via 7A Sides Records, Welcome to the Gardens is the debut EP from Stars And Sitars.

The duo, David Walsh [Monowave, Suplex the Kid, The Buttons] and James Barker [Ace City Racers, Juno!], are a psychedelic / shoegaze outfit from Glasgow who are being championed by a growing list of tastemakers.

With distortion drenched guitars, theremins, e-bows and dreamy, synth-like vocals, regaling tales of the supernatural and British folk horror stories, they’ve produced a captivating debut.

Their newly-formed label is also promising, a musician-led imprint with a truly DIY ethos, it makes a welcome addition to the burgeoning Glasgow scene.

For free tickets to the official launch party in Glasgow’s Southside at the end of next month, email sevenasides@yahoo.co.uk.
