FOGGY CITY ORPHAN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 24 September 2017, Foggy City Orphan

Glasgow quartet, Foggy City Orphan combine family members with school friends – brothers John and Paul McLinden on guitar and vocal duties,  and Michael Valente on bass and Stephen Sweeney on drums.

Taken from their debut album, which was produced by Paul Savage (Mogwai, Franz Ferdinand, Arab Strap), the band release excellent new single Fake News Blues on 9 October. It’s a short, sharp slice of topical indie/rock social commentary, poking fun at Trump and fake news in general.

The single has gained airplay from Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music, Billy Sloan via BBC Radio Scotland and they played XpoNorth and TRNSMT Festivals earlier this year.

Catch them live on 26 October when they headline a BBC Introducing gig at Glasgow’s King Tuts.

Acrylic Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 24 July 2016, Acrylic

Since supporting The View on 1 January, Acrylic have gone on to win over audiences at key Scottish venues including King Tut’s, Nice’n’Sleazy, Fat Sam’s, Sneaky Pete’s and The Electric Circus.

Moreover, the Glasgow-based five piece have also been picking up plays from the likes of Dermot O’Leary on Radio 2 and the Roddy Hart Show on Radio Scotland.

Although they describe themselves as alternative indie-rock, the band have a more subtle sound than many of the acts who would put themselves in that category. On their new single, Overrun, the vocals suggest a crooner-ish yearning, while a jangly guitar provides a touch of summer lightness. The track, which was released on Friday is mixed by veteran producer Paul Savage, and comes a week after the band played Glasgow’s St Luke’s Festival.

Acrylic venture out of the Central Belt to play the Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival on 5 August. Listen at www.acrylicmusic.co.uk/single/
