NORTH ATLAS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Hailing from Dumfries, North Atlas are a Glasgow-based electro-rock quartet for fans of Biffy Clyro and Imagine Dragons.
Their excellent new single ’Another Ocean’ is released on 8 September via their own label, King of the Woods Recordings, and was produced by award-winning Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns) at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire.
Formed just last year, they’ve already supported high profile acts including Feeder and Reverend And The Makers as well as securing a slot at Tenement TV’s Tenement Trail. Through shear hard graft North Atlas even managed to sell out Manchester venue Night & Day Cafe.
They play live at Edinburgh’s Opium venue on Friday and officially launch their new single at Stereo in Glasgow on Saturday 7 October. For information and tickets see www.northatlas.co.uk Listen to ’Another Ocean’ exclusively at http://bit.ly/NorthAtlas-SoS

With a guitar sound likely to appeal to fans of Rage Against The Machine and Queens of The Stone Age, Huxtable are one of those duos who manage to create a sound much meatier than the sum of their parts.
Hailing from Kilmarnock where they respectively run a studio and work as a chef, the band have a support for local legends, Biffy Clyro to their name, and have also played throughout Scotland.
Huxtable are currently putting the finishing touches to a single, Favourite Thing, mastered by Frank Arkwright, who has worked with artists including Arcade Fire, Snow Patrol, Elton John and Mogwai. And the forthcoming release boasts the studio skills of JP Reid, sometime collaborator with Biffy’s Simon Neil.
Later this month, the band take to the road again with dates confirmed for Edinburgh’s Electric Circus (20 May), Perth’s Twa Tams the following night and the Big Barn Rally in Stockport (28 May). In the meantime, we particularly recommend checking out the tracks Shut Up and Attack.
