FOLDA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 14 January 2018, Folda

One of Edinburgh’s newest bands, Folda launched into the public domain with their debut single Aurora last week.

The quartet is Mark Morrow (no stranger to this column, he has produced scores of emerging Under The Radar-featured artists), David Ritchie, Ewan Simpson and Steve Morrison. Morrow, alongside Simpson were also members of the excellent  The Winter Tradition, whom we’ve also featured.

Aurora is a promising debut – a catchy, dark, electronica-pop track with commercial overtones. It’s expertly produced and guaranteed to get people dancing. So far it’s been featured on Radio Summerhall and smaller blogs including; Alive & Amplified and Club Decode – and no doubt there will be plenty more interest to come.

Listen to Aurora at: https://soundcloud.com/folda and visit www.facebook.com/foldaband and @Foldaband for live announcements and more music.

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon run the Born To Be Wide music industry events and seminars. Their next events take place on 1 & 2 February www.borntobewide.co.uk

NORTH ATLAS Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 13 August 2017, North Atlas

Hailing from Dumfries, North Atlas are a Glasgow-based electro-rock quartet for fans of Biffy Clyro and Imagine Dragons.

Their excellent new single ’Another Ocean’ is released on 8 September via their own label, King of the Woods Recordings, and was produced by award-winning Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns) at Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire.

Formed just last year, they’ve already supported high profile acts including Feeder and Reverend And The Makers as well as securing a slot at Tenement TV’s Tenement Trail. Through shear hard graft North Atlas even managed to sell out Manchester venue Night & Day Cafe.

They play live at Edinburgh’s Opium venue on Friday and officially launch their new single at Stereo in Glasgow on Saturday 7 October. For information and tickets see www.northatlas.co.uk Listen to ’Another Ocean’ exclusively at http://bit.ly/NorthAtlas-SoS
