Fatherson won Best Rock/Alt at last week’s Scottish Alternative Music Awards, and will be looking to continue that success with the release of single First Born.
The track is out 9th April, but the band hit the road before that, with the following dates:
14th: Jam Jar – Dunfermline
15th: Ironworks – Inverness
16th: Tunnels – Aberdeen
17th: Doghouse – Dundee
18th: Electric Circus – Edinburgh
23rd: Grand Hall – Kilmarnock
The video is again the fantastic work of Joshua Porter.
Bwani Junction were also winners at the SAMA’s last week, picking up the prize for Best Newcomer. Here’s the Edinburgh band in recent session for Tenement TV, where they played 3 stripped back numbers, but if you fancy seeing them plugged in then head to Stereo this Friday for French Wives SXSW fundraiser, or The Granary in Edinburgh on Saturday.
Capitals are gearing up the release of double A side Jealousy/Sinking Ships on Monday (12th) by posting this video for previously unreleased track Ode To An End. It’s a bit of a different sound for the band, but I think we’ll all agree it is great – expect a return to electro expertise on the 12th though!
New Glasgow label Comets and Cartwheels has announced its first live outing, and it’s a cracker. Check the video preview below for more details on the event which doubles as a launch for both the label and Quickbeam‘s upcoming single, and head to Tickets Scotland for briefs.
I’d recommend keeping an eye on Dundee band Seams, but if you don’t know them yet then check out this live video. This is an extremely young outfit, but the recent Colours and Maps EP suggests their is a lot to come. You can already purchase said EP on iTunes and I’m planning on having more words about it here soon.
