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.

Scotland On Sunday, 12 June 2016, Bloodlines

A young quartet from Fort William, currently based in Glasgow, Bloodlines have played Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, ButeFest, Tenement Trail and secured airplay from the likes of Vic Galloway and Jim Gellatly.

The band kicked off 2016 with a sold out headline show at King Tuts, promoting the release of their debut EP ‘Love The Taste,’ and we witnessed the band deliver a flawless, high-energy set at last week’s XpoNorth Festival.

They play the T Break Stage at T In The Park on 8 July [selected by music industry judges from over 1,000 entries], with a pre-festival show at Glasgow’s The Hug & Pint on 5 July.
As part of Edinburgh Festival Fringe they also perform at the Electric Circus on 25 August.
