LIFE MODEL Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 3 September 2017, Life Model

When Life Model’s guitarist Christopher T Smith advertised for a singer, he probably didn’t expect that vocalist Sophie Evans would move to the city from Newcastle, having penned lyrics for half the songs he had written.

Four years on and the Glasgow band have established themselves as torch bearers of the classic C86 indie pop sound, wooing festival goers at events including Lost Map’s Howling Fling, Doune The Rabbit Hole and King Tut’s Summer Nights.

Lucky, which was released in July on Durham-based label Frux Tapes and recorded by Smith and Tuff Love’s Susan Bear. An aural picture well-worth checking out, it is guaranteed to appeal to fans of the latter’s band as well as contemporary indie-pop acts such as Veronica Falls.

Life Model play play several dates in Glasgow over the coming weeks, as well as a benefit for Music For Mental in Bathgate on 30 September. Visit www.facebook.com/LifeModelMusic

Originally from Aberdeen, and starting her musical career as a folk artist, Sarah J Stanley is currently making an impact with her electronica project HQFU.

A multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer, her self-titled debut album was released last month, securing lots of media support, most notably a live session on Vic Galloway’s BBC Radio Scotland show.

HQFU’s sound is rooted in house and electro, combining live vocals, dreamy melodies, synthesisers, beats and bleeps.

She performs live on Thursday as part of Hidden Door Festival in Edinburgh, Friday at Brew At The Bog near Inverness, 10 June during the West End Festival at the Hug And Pint in Glasgow and Doune The Rabbit Hole in August. She also joins previous Scottish Album of the Year Award winner RM Hubbert on tour next month.
