MARBLE GODS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 30 July 2017, Marble Gods

Marble Gods are Glasgow art-pop trio consisting of Eimear Coyle (guitar / vocals), Connell King (bass) and Kieran Coyle (drums). Their sound is fun and upbeat, with a tongue-in-cheek humour.

Unusually, when they self-released their first physical offering at Nice N Sleazy in Glasgow on Thursday – an EPK titled Song – they chose to do so on the super retro cassette format.

They’ve secured airplay from Nicola Meighan on BBC Radio Scotland and have magazines like DIY onboard. The band have also supported artists like Bis, The Spook School and Breakfast Muff.

It is no surprise that Kathryn Joseph has been making waves in Scottish music circles over the past few months. Her album, Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I Have Spilled, is a spellbinding blend of distinctive vocals and piano, with producer Marcus Mackay joining in on drums. It was released in January on the recently-revived Hits The Fan records, which launched the career of Frightened Rabbit. Last Monday Joseph was in session on Vic Galloway’s Radio Scotland show, and the broadcast can be heard on the iPlayer for the next three weeks click HERE . She also plays Glasgow [King Tut’s, 5 March] and Aberdeen [The Lemon Tree, 28 March], as well as a free showcase at our Wide Days convention in Edinburgh [The Pleasance ,10 April]
Already on several ‘ones to watch’ lists, expect this album to be a firm favourite for 2015. Visit for more info.
