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

STATIC UNION Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 11 December 2016, Static Union

Although still in their teens, Static Union have amassed a healthy amount of music experience, with frontman Sean penning his first songs at the tender age of 12 and bandmates Liam and James growing up playing in the same function band as their fathers.

Formed two years ago while still at school in Glasgow’s South Side, the four-piece have already played some of the city’s more prestigious grassroots venues including Stereo, Broadcast, St Luke’s and the now defunct Arches.
The band have given us an exclusive preview of their debut single, Turn Out The Lights, released at the end of next month listen at: https://soundcloud.com/static_union/turn-out-the-lights

Driven by a pacy guitar sound, it is set to be accompanied by a video featuring professional dancer Joanna Pirrie. In the meantime, check out Static Union at Glasgow’s Broadcast on Thursday – we expect great things.
