New Music Friday! - Gigs in Scotland Spotify Playlist
NEW MUSIC THIS WEEK
It’s our favourite time of the week… New Music Friday! Head over to our Spotify channel and check out our New Music Friday playlist to hear the latest releases from our Gigs in Scotland touring artists
‘Remember To Forget’ is taken from the EP of the same name by Passenger which serves as a prelude to new album Songs For The Drunk And Broken Hearted set for release on 8th January. The new song has been accompanied by a video illustrating the message of the song with Mike saying that it “focusses on an equally drunk and brokenhearted character that most people will be familiar with”
Introducing herself to the world with ‘you broke me first’ Tate McRae has followed up her smash hit with another dose of heartbreak pop in ‘r u ok.’ The 17 year-old Canadian spoke of the song by saying “‘r u ok’ is a song that I never thought I’d write. It has a very sassy and feisty tone, which made it a challenge to dive into that perspective – as I think I’m quite the opposite. I love that in this song there is a lot of emotional meaning behind the lyrics, with very trappy, bright and contrasting production at the same time.” 2021 looks set to be a huge year for Tate
Lucy Spraggan has today released the new EP Run. The eponymous opening song is incredibly uplifting in both its sound and its lyrics with Lucy saying “the song is about keeping on going, reminding yourself you are here to make moves, adventuring out into the world and breaking down barriers. All the things I learnt by pushing myself further and further, ignoring when my brain told me I needed to give up.” We’ll have some of that please!
Edinburgh trio Liimo round off the year with a slow jam cover of ‘If You Were Here Tonight.’ According to the band the song (originally recorded by 80s R&B artist Alexander O’Neal) “resonated so much with how we’re feeling at the moment. Missing loved ones and wishing you could be with them, so we thought we’d put the Liimo spin on it.” Very excited to see what’s in store next for these guys
The mighty Dunts return! ‘Individuation’ is being described as “a wee nugget of optimism in these strange and dreary times” and is available now via 7 West Music. The council punk band from Glasgow have also promised more news to share with us all soon. Here’s to 2021 lads
