We first encountered teenage brothers JR Green [Jacob and Rory] last year performing for Music Plus+ at Belladrum Festival .

One year on, they’re poised to make a major impact, having signed a publishing deal with Snow Patrol’s publishing company Polar Patrol Publishing representation with 13 Artists and their debut EP ‘Bring The Witch Doctor’ is out 30 October via Hits The Fan Records [released Frightened Rabbit’s debut LP and Kathryn Joseph’s 2015 SAY Award winning album].

Growing up in Strontian in the North-West Highlands has shaped their sound, mixing traditional folk with contemporary influences, accordion and acoustic guitar, with sharp, teenage angst laden lyrics. JR Green craft genuinely original, exciting music and this is an incredible debut.

The duo perform at Edinburgh’s VoxBox on 17 October with a UK tour commencing in Birmingham 5 November, followed by Inverness 7 November, then Glasgow, Dunfermline, Edinburgh and Leeds 14 November.

Man Of Moon are 19-year-old duo, Michael Reid and Chris Bainbridge, who we first encountered last year via youth music touring project Hit The Road . Since then, their profile has grown significantly, thanks to support slots with bands like The Twilight Sad and The Phantom Band plus airplay and festival appearances.

Their debut split single ‘The Road / This World’ was recorded and produced by Andy Monaghan of Frightened Rabbit and is released on Melodic Records this month.

The pair are musically tight; both melodic and dark. Their psychedelic, alt-rock sound blends hypnotic guitar lines and chunky chords with dreamy, reverb-drenched vocals.

Man Of Moon host launch gigs for the single on Thursday at Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms, and on Friday at Glasgow’s Hug and Pint, followed by appearances at Belladrum Festival on 8 August and Electric Fields on 29 August.
