Ones to look out for at Electric Fields 2016

Electric Fields might well be the most exciting festival north of the border this year, with a line up that draws huge talent from both the local pool and further afield and without compromising in talent have drawn together the most attractive line up we’ve seen in a while. Last year Electric Fields was aContinue reading “Ones to look out for at Electric Fields 2016”

T in the Park, 9/7/16

Day two and the bus issues don’t reoccur, we are however met with a rather more rain soaked affair after torrential rains last night hit the festival site hard, still the news that Tom Odell and Bay City Rollers have switched sets, meaning I get to see some our local heroes for a fun timeContinue reading “T in the Park, 9/7/16”

West End Festival All Dayer at Oran Mor, 19/6/16

So it’s another dad day and another all dayer at Oran Mor as part of the West End Festival, and while the line up today may not be quite as dad friendly as last year’s fare there is a host of local talent at various stages of their musical development on offer. Arriving early weContinue reading “West End Festival All Dayer at Oran Mor, 19/6/16”

Stag and Dagger (Part Two), 1/5/16

In the previous coverage of Stag and Dagger our reviewer, Adam Turner-Heffer, spoke of the fun of people’s entirely different experiences of the festival. Intriguingly enough mine and Adam’s days overlap in only two places, one being rejecting the daunting queue for We Were Promised Jetpacks and the other being the early in the dayContinue reading “Stag and Dagger (Part Two), 1/5/16”

Be Charlotte – Discover [Electric Honey]

Be Charlotte waltzes into the scene with digital prowess that powers her punchy debut single ‘Discover’. The chorus is infectious and unexpected after the slow spoken word intro; I cannot sit still as she sings in a flavourful way as if gurgling fizzy pop in her throat. There is a light-ness to the track andContinue reading “Be Charlotte – Discover [Electric Honey]”

Wide Days Showcases ft. Be Charlotte, Best Girl Athlete, Elle Exxe, Tongues, The Van T’s, Scumpulse

Having not made the conferences during the day due to work commitment I arrived at Wide Days for, well, the best bit. Let’s face it people talking about the music industry can be very interesting and entertaining, and there were some topics on this year’s agenda which I would have very much like to haveContinue reading “Wide Days Showcases ft. Be Charlotte, Best Girl Athlete, Elle Exxe, Tongues, The Van T’s, Scumpulse”

Be Charlotte (single launch) at Stereo, 15/4/16

Stereo is already completely packed by the time I arrive eager for Charlotte Brimner aka Be Charlotte’s first headline show. Over the past few months the young Dundonian has been causing quite a stir in the Scottish scene by shaping her own unique brand pop songs; breaking the boundaries of what it means to beContinue reading “Be Charlotte (single launch) at Stereo, 15/4/16”

Tenement Trail, 3/10/15

Sauchiehall Street on the day of Tenement TV’s annual Tenement Trail is always packed with musicians and gig goers alike, with an unashamed buzz in the atmosphere. Often regarded as Glasgow’s best music festival, I start a promising day at Broadcast to see the bluesy folk styling’s of Dundonian band Sinderins. They kick their setContinue reading “Tenement Trail, 3/10/15”

Doune The Rabbit Hole, 23/8/15

Sunday at Doune and we’ve found a touch of familiarity about the site, only today it seems to be filled with yellow as Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5 closing things tonight and their fans seem to engulf the festival site in what could resemble a cult if you weren’t aware a silly, fun-times bandContinue reading “Doune The Rabbit Hole, 23/8/15”

King Tut’s Summer Nights with Bwani, Whispery Club, Barbary Coast, Be Charlotte, 24/7/15

It’s Bwani’s turn to headline this years King Tut’s Summer Nights and though the smattering of people steadily increases as each of the four acts takes their turn on stage, the venue doesn’t quite hit the atmosphere provided by a full and roused audience. Be Charlotte (AKA Charlotte Brimner) is a singer/songwriter from Dundee whoContinue reading “King Tut’s Summer Nights with Bwani, Whispery Club, Barbary Coast, Be Charlotte, 24/7/15”
