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.
Emerging North London popstar Mae Muller has released a new EP no one else, not even you, via Capitol. The EP encapsulates Mae’s energetic and honest persona - something that has drawn her fans close to her over the past few years. Her frank and relatable lyrics empower her fans and she has intertwined this with contagious pop melodies and production. Tracks like ‘so annoying’ see Mae work with Rick Nowels (Madonna, Lana Del Rey) and Skyler Stonestreet (Ariana Grande, Chainsmokers) alongside new additions such as the catchy ‘plot twist’, slow burning pop ballad ‘wish you well’ and tongue-in-cheek ‘HFBD’
Having made a name for himself through huge collabs with the likes of Stormzy and M Huncho, Drill rapper Dutchavelli has dropped his debut mixtape Dutch From The 5th today. Standout track comes in the finale of ‘Zero Zero’ recounting the East London artist’s journey from jail cell to main stage performer. Debuts don't get much better than this
James Vincent McMorrow returns with his new single 'Gone.' Produced by Paul Epworth (Adele, Florence & The Machine), ‘Gone’ is a song about disintegration, belligerence, and the refusal to change even when change is the only thing. The third, and arguably best outing of 2020 from the Irish singer-songwriter points towards a promising direction for the follow up to 2017’s album, True Care
Who Are You?’ is taken from new EP A Spin Around The Sun out now on Scruff Of The Neck. The indie pop duo gained notoriety as a busking sensation when they performed 3 months up and down the country without a single day off, to self-fund their debut album which reached the UK Top 40 on Record Store Day. Be sure to check them out on 20th March when they stop by at The Garage (Attic Bar.) Tickets available here
Post-punk quartet Dead Pony have called ’23 Never Me’ their favourite song of theirs yet and we would have to agree with them. A track about a toxic ex-best friend is met with punchy riffs and a heavy bassline serving up further excitement about the band’s debut EP expected for release next year. The Glasgow band have been nominated for Best Rock/Alternative Act at this year’s SAMAs which you can watch live as a virtual ceremony on 18th November
