Scotland On Sunday, 15 January 2017, Thula Borah

Thula Borah are a four-piece indie-rock band from Glasgow.

Last year was a busy one for them, festival appearances at the likes of Jocktoberfest, north of Inverness and Indie Week Europe in Manchester and radio support courtesy of BBC Radio Scotland. Their sound is big, with meaty guitars, and dream-pop, melodious hooks.

The quartet kick-start 2017 with the release of a new six track EP, titled ‘Near Life Experience’ which is out via Kill Jester Records on 27 January.

See them live at The Bungalow in Paisley on 26 January, Hootananny in Inverness on 18 February, with more to be announced soon.

To celebrate the release of the EP, the band are offering a free download of their single ‘Confabulation’ available to stream and download at: https://soundcloud.com/thulaborah/confabulation-thula-borah for more information visit http://thulaborah.com

Edwin Organ, Scotland on Sunday, 8 January 2017

EDWIN ORGAN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 8 January 2017, Edwin Organ

The death of a rosemary plant is an unlikely inspiration for a song about loss, but then Edwin Organ is no ordinary artist.

Originally hailing from Dunfirmline, where he spent several years recording house tracks, his move to Glasgow has led to decidedly left-field take on electronica.
This is particularly evident on the ode to the culinary herb, titled Serenade, which sees a pacey rhythm and engaging double bassline, underpin a vocal style which will remind older listeners of OMD and the younger musical connoisseurs, of C Duncan.

Already attracting interest from big record labels and booking agents, not to mention Swedish House Mafia’s Axewell, he will be in session on Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway show on 13 February and is expected to play live as a three piece act, around the same time.

Based on what we’ve heard so far, Edwin Organ could well be 2017’s most original breakthrough act.
