Made In Scotland

It is not surprise that FIONA SOE PAING has been creating a stir among a rather eclectic group of cultural connoisseurs in recent years, including synth supremo Vince Clarke [Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure] and Neu Reekie! literary pioneer, Kevin Williamson.
Combining eerie vocals with a seductive range of electronic sounds and some thunderous bass beats, her sound manages to be both beguiling and accessible.
In April she gave a taster of her entrancing live show at our Wide Days showcase and the full performance, titled Alien Lullabies, runs as part of the Fringe’s Made In Scotland programme on 12-16 and 19-23 August. Taking place at Summerhall, it sets Soe Paing’s vocals and recordings, to animations created by New Zealand artist, Zenor Alexander.
The full soundtrack is set to appear on Glasgow label Hot Gem, but the single Heartbeat gives an excellent flavor of both the music and the visuals. Fiona Soe Paing is an act to watch – in every sense of the word.
