NOVEMBER LIGHTS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 30 October 2016, November Lights

Originally from The Three Towns area, northwest of Kilwinning, indie-pop band November Lights now live and study in Glasgow.

The young trio have supported bands like Fatherson and The LaFontaines and we first encountered them at the XpoNorth festival then again in August via youth music touring initiative Hit The Road.

Their catchy new single ’A.U.X’ is an excellent indication of what to expect from their EP ‘Talk’ due out at the end of next month.

In support of the release of th EP, the band embark on a mini-tour, performing at Cafe Drummonds in Aberdeen on 9 December at The Hug and Pint in Glasgow on 10 December and at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 11 December. Retro Video Club and Audiokicks join them on tour.

AYAKARA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 21 August 2016, Ayakara

Ayakara have developed quite a fanbase in Edinburgh, since forming in 2015 while still at school. The Leithers have released three EPs and are establishing a reputation for their live shows, which often involve audience participation.

With a pacey sound which draws on everything from 1960s garage to 1990s indie rock, the quintet’s next release Bitter Kiss, is likely to win new converts, in part thanks to its musical nod to The Strokes. The single is due to coincide with the band’s latest tour which begins in Dundee on 10 September and ends in London on 24 September.
