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: and visit 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

Under the Radar is in association with Off Axis, a touring and gig swapping network enabling artists to play successful shows and festivals, in over 75 towns and cities across the UK. Look out for Off Axis gigs on 27 January with Bloodlines, North Atlas, Static Union and 9 February with Ded Rabbit, Acrylic, Chris Greig both at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh. Register at
