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/

Huxtable, Scotland On Sunday, 1 May 2016

Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon, Scotland On Sunday, 1 May 2016, Huxtable

With a guitar sound likely to appeal to fans of Rage Against The Machine and Queens of The Stone Age, Huxtable are one of those duos who manage to create a sound much meatier than the sum of their parts.

Hailing from Kilmarnock where they respectively run a studio and work as a chef, the band have a support for local legends, Biffy Clyro to their name, and have also played throughout Scotland.
Huxtable are currently putting the finishing touches to a single, Favourite Thing, mastered by Frank Arkwright, who has worked with artists including Arcade Fire, Snow Patrol, Elton John and Mogwai. And the forthcoming release boasts the studio skills of JP Reid, sometime collaborator with Biffy’s Simon Neil.

Later this month, the band take to the road again with dates confirmed for Edinburgh’s Electric Circus (20 May), Perth’s Twa Tams the following night and the Big Barn Rally in Stockport (28 May). In the meantime, we particularly recommend checking out the tracks Shut Up and Attack.
