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.

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.
