EDWIN ORGAN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 8 January 2017, Edwin Organ

The death of a rosemary plant is an unlikely inspiration for a song about loss, but then Edwin Organ is no ordinary artist.

Originally hailing from Dunfirmline, where he spent several years recording house tracks, his move to Glasgow has led to decidedly left-field take on electronica.
This is particularly evident on the ode to the culinary herb, titled Serenade, which sees a pacey rhythm and engaging double bassline, underpin a vocal style which will remind older listeners of OMD and the younger musical connoisseurs, of C Duncan.

Already attracting interest from big record labels and booking agents, not to mention Swedish House Mafia’s Axewell, he will be in session on Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway show on 13 February and is expected to play live as a three piece act, around the same time.

Based on what we’ve heard so far, Edwin Organ could well be 2017’s most original breakthrough act.

ISLE Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 1 January 2017, ISLE

Based in the Scottish Borders, ISLE consists of multi-instrumentalists Liam John Rutherford and Ben Singer.

The duo have had an impressive year, with growing media attention online, they also picked up plays from Radio X and Amazing Radio and after securing airplay from Vic Galloway on BBC Radio Scotland and BBC Radio 1, they headlined the BBC Introducing stage at T in the Park last year.

The talented pair write glorious electro-pop gems and in addition to taking care of production duties for their music, they also create their own artwork and music videos.

You can see them live next month when they support Ladyhawke on her full UK tour, including a gig at Glasgow School of Art on 9 February.
