SAVAGE MANSION Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 6 August 2017, Savage Mansion

Savage Mansion came into existence when former Poor Things frontman Craig Angus decided to form a band with musicians who shared his love of Jonathan Richman the Pixies, Pavement and Wire.

The early results are promising, with a couple of excellent singles displaying the type of lyrical wit and effortless musical cool of fellow Glaswegians Catholic Action, which is not surprising given that the bands share a member in Jamie Dubber.

Savage Mansion are set to play a Made In Scotland show at Edinburgh’s Summerhall on 19 August and a slot at Electric Fields at the beginning of September. Then in November they go into the studio to record their debut album. One of Scotland’s most promising new bands, we anticipate a feast for the ears.

RACHEL ALICE JOHNSON Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 2 July 2017, Foreignfox

Former art student Rachel Alice Johnson has become a well-known face in Edinburgh’s music scene over the past couple of years, demonstrating a strong DIY ethic with both her releases and self-promoted shows.

Eschewing the album in order to experiment with different sounds, her latest single, I Won’t Remember You, is undoubtedly her best track so far. Underpinned by a chunky bassline which provides the perfect accompaniment for a vocal which sounds like PJ Harvey channeling Chris Isaac’s hit, Wicked Game, it has a dark groove which creeps up on the listener.

Having just surfaced from the studio she is already lining up new material to release later in the year and is in the process of planning a tour of Scotland and Northern England for the autumn.

In the meantime, her next live show is at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on 16 July – a date to remember.
