FOREIGNFOX Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 2 July 2017, Foreignfox

Foreignfox are a five-piece indie-rock band from Dunfermline.

They released their excellent new EP ‘I Used To Be a Bellydancer’ on 12-inch vinyl via Scottish Fiction Records on Friday, picking up airplay from Vic Galloway on BBC Radio Scotland, Amazing Radio and BBC Radio nan Gàidheal. It’s also currently streaming on the Scottish Alternative Music Awards website http://bit.ly/Foreignfox-SAMAs

Jonny Watt’s emotional, raw vocals and Scottish-twang showcase authentic lyrics, with the music often gradually building towards gloriously epic choruses.

Foreignfox play today at Edinburgh’s Assai Records, with a headline set in Glasgow as part of King Tut’s Summer Nights Festival on 20 July. Other dates include Blackthorn Festival in Stockport on 22 July, a Nordoff Robbins Scotland fundraiser at Glasgow’s ABC on 19 August and Edinburgh’s The Voodoo Rooms on 15 October.

MONKOORA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 30 April 2017, Monkoora

Monkoora is the musical moniker for producer, multi-instrumentalist and singer Julie Fern Crawford.

Her new six-track EP (seven including a radio edit of lead single ’Bocx Wurld’), was released last week via Glasgow-based artist management agency and record label Hot Gem.

The single has picked up radio support, while last year’s mini-LP, ‘Pale Slopes’ is on the eligibles list for this years Scottish Album of the Year award.

Monkoora creates bright bubble-gum electronica pop music, but with meaty lyrics exploring sexual politics, and philosophy.

We highly recommend seeing Monkoora live as part of Edinburgh’s Hidden Door Festival on 3 June.
