ALEX MAXWELL Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 11 June 2017, Chris Greig

Hailing from Dumfries, Alex Maxwell first came to our attention at our Wide Days conference, where he was one of only a handful of artists to receive positive feedback about his music on our “A&R You Brave Enough” session.

He has performed local festivals like Eden and Electric Fields and featured in various blogs. Maxwell’s debut single, The Want Comes In Waves, also the title of his debut EP, has a clear Frightened Rabbit influence (no bad thing) and features Lissa Robertson enabling sweet girl/boy vocal harmonies.

Scotland on Sunday readers can watch the video for the single below or visit: https://youtu.be/NtLIzbQ7FWs

Live dates include 1 July at Kelburn Garden Party, 20 July at The Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh, 28 July at Mugstock Festival (full band set) and 9 September at The Live Lounge in Dumfries. For more info see www.alex-maxwell.com

Sweaty Palms, Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016

Published in Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016 | Words by Derick Mackinnon and Olaf Furniss. Read on Scotsman.com [in association with Lindisfarne Festival]

Scotland On Sunday, 26 June 2016, Sweaty Palms

Glaswegian quartet Sweaty Palms’ latest EP, ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ was recorded at Green Door Studios in Glasgow and is released on Friday on 7″ vinyl / download via new label Black Sheep Records.

From their social media posts and their lyrics, Sweaty Palms possess a wonderfully dark, observational humour in all that they do. And while ‘Love Me / Pretty Poor’ is a refreshingly brilliant record, their brand of scuzzy, lo-fi punk and grunge is best experienced live.

They play tonight at the George Orwell in Dundee, on Friday at Glasgow’s Broadcast (their official EP launch), on the T Break stage at T In The Park on 10 July and at Edinburgh’s Sneaky Pete’s on 15 July. They then embark on a UK tour that includes dates in London, Cardiff, and Manchester, and perform at Electric Fields Festival on 26 August.
