Scottish Music 2019
Lewis Capaldi – Someone You Love
C Duncan - Like you Do (Garden)
CD Duncan – blissful digital dive into soft, anxious romance.
Young Fathers – “shroud their soulfulness in a murk of machine chunks, wall of noise and serial loops. Their social tension.”
Rip it Up Vic Galloway – Exhibition and book on the story of Scottish Pop music.
Pat Kane writes in the National June 2018
“Here’s a history – a tradition even - of creative dissatisfaction, of endlessly fizzing fireworks in the suburbs, small towns and city centres of Scottish life.
A good flourishing society needs security but it also needs risk. When Scottish pop is exploding loudly its an indication that we’re holding that balance in a sweet spot. “
I am very encouraged to hear it is still about great melodies and anthems, those packed crowds can sing along to.

“We’re all looking for a lyric, or a melody or a groove ot bind the crowd together.
And audiences want to embed in themselves a collective memory.” Pat Kane
