LILURA Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 22 October 2017, LILURA

LILURA signals the successful transition to electro-pop for Highlands singer-songwriter Jemma Tweedie who previously built a solid profile as an acoustic artist.

Over the past year, LILURA has performed at XpoNorth, Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival and recently returned from a writing trip in Los Angeles. The result, new single ’Darkest Desire’ which was co-written by Dan Richards (One Direction), is a confident slice of dark, glitzy, electro-pop at its finest.


To coincide with the official release on 17 November, LILURA tours alongside fellow Highlands act Josephine Sillars + The Manic Pixie Dreams playing Green Rooms in Perth on Friday, The Drouthy Cobbler in Elgin on 4 November, Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh on 5 November and The Hug & Pint in Glasgow on 7 November.

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.
