Video News: Fatherson/IndianRedLopez/Kitty The Lion/LightGuides/Pareto/Penguins Kill Polar Bears/Randolph’s Leap

Posted on May 24, 2011


The new video from Fatherson is fairly racking up the hits this week, and it’s quite easy to see why. Hometown will be the first single taken from the band’s upcoming self-titled EP, which is being released on King Tut’s Recordings in July. The video is the first of three parts that will make up a short film and was shot by Joshua Porter, who has been doing some great work with Scottish bands..

IndianRedLopez played at Homegame last month, and, as the tickets disappear almost instantly, were nice enough to document events. This is a great piece of film that gives a glimpse into the festival and the Aberdeen band’s experience of it.

Kitty The Lion are not long back from a Scottish tour, and also decided to take a camera along and document events. The band fairly got around on this jaunt, and there’s plenty of footage of what a tour is like for an unsigned band.

The build up to LightGuides debut album has officially started with the release of the first single from it, Old Bucket Seats, on May 25th. The song will be a FREE download from the band’s website. Also, there is a launch at the Captain’s Rest the very same evening, with Friends In America and The Darien Venture supporting.

It’s been a wee while since I’ve mentioned Pareto on the blog, but they make a welcome appearance with the video for Paint Them Silver. It’s the title track to last months EP and is available to buy on iTunes now.

I posted the video for Penguins Kill Polar Bears new single Sapling a few weeks ago, but thought it deserved another airing. The band is out on tour this week to support its launch – check the listings for all the Scottish dates. The track is available to purchase from iTunes now, and you can also download an acoustic version for FREE on Soundcloud.

Randolph’s Leap have new single Counting Sheep available to purchase from Bandcamp now. The video for the track was shot in the Kelvin Hall and sports some dance moves that I really hope catch on.
