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

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.
