LUCIA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 4 February 2018, Lucia

This looks set to be the year Glasgow-based artist Lucia makes it big. Discovered while busking in the city, her debut single Best Boy embracing hints of The Undertones, Blondie and Wall Of Sound, has already marked her out for attention on the local indie scene.

Coverage in publications including Nylon and DIY has followed, and has been accompanied by play on Radio 1 and Radio Scotland. Slots have also been confirmed at major music industry events The Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City.

Lucia’s latest release, Melted Ice Cream, is likely to appeal to fans of Honeyblood and The Pixies, and sets her up for a date at London’s Blue Last on 28 February. The gig provides a taster of Scottish acts set to perform at The Great Escape and also includes Declan Welsh and Rascalton.

VISTAS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 2 April 2017, Vistas

Penicuick indie-rock outfit Vistas have built up an impressive following since forming last year.

Single launches at Edinburgh’s Mash House and Electric Circus sold out and the band have been heard on Radio Scotland and Amazing Radio.

Boasting a singalong sensibility which lightly nods to The Strokes, Snow Patrol and the Arctic Monkeys, the four-piece have also been garnering interest further afield, thanks to inclusion on several highly regarded Spotify playlists. Their recent release, Feel Alive has been played more than 200,000 times, taking the total number of streams for their songs past 500,000.

Their next gig will be at Edinburgh’s Liquid Rooms on 21 April, playing our (free) Wide Days showcase (Vistas Tickets Here) along with former Under The Radar act The Vegan Leather and Declan Welsh. From our point of view Vistas are set to go far.
