WHITE – ‘Fight The Feeling’

This five-piece band has been hailed as an exciting new band to look out for, and new track ‘Fight The Feeling’ backs up this praise. WHITE’s guitarists and bassist were previous members of the Glaswegian band Kassidy and this new formation promises much more than their previous incarnation. ‘Fight The Feeling’ is an energetic, modernContinue reading “WHITE – ‘Fight The Feeling’”

WHITE, Van T’s at QMU, 20/2/16

“I want one of those WHITE tees, but a pink WHITE t-shirt” confesses The Van T’s Hannah Van Thompson mid set to those awaiting the nights headliners appearance, although given the rather tasty clamour on show around the merch area at conclusion of this gig she may have had a fight on her hands toContinue reading “WHITE, Van T’s at QMU, 20/2/16”

Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers – Aviemore (Saturday)

So, the journey starts and after managing to rally through the torrential rain and glide the car through five to 20 inches of mud to the camping field, it’s time to get dirty. Waking up on the Saturday morning after a masterful live set by Ben Howard – he’s even better live than on recordContinue reading “Gentlemen of the Road Stopovers – Aviemore (Saturday)”

Wickerman (Friday), 24/7/15

We were told that Wickerman Festival 2015 was the year of the Phoenix, a year of transition and change. On arrival that change doesn’t seem apparent – the festival layout is pretty much the same as it has been in years before (aside from the installation of the new ‘Phoenix’ tent). The bars, festivities andContinue reading “Wickerman (Friday), 24/7/15”

WHITE, Atom Tree at Stereo, 17/7/15

With the entrance to the downstairs bar covered in fairy lights and gold balloons spelling out the name of tonight’s headliner, Stereo is as electric as it has ever felt. After all, the four guys and one girl who make up WHITE have every reason to be pleased with themselves. Following a barnstorming performance atContinue reading “WHITE, Atom Tree at Stereo, 17/7/15”

WHITE – Future Pleasures [RCA]

Like The The or cult Manchester rockers Keith, WHITE are cursed with a name so toe-curlingly, brain-meltingly bad that initially it poses a threat to the enjoyment of their music. You just can’t damn well find it. Their time spent sulking under the radar might very soon be over however; with radio play from theContinue reading “WHITE – Future Pleasures [RCA]”

WHITE at The Poetry Club, 20/2/15

Somewhere in between the Riverside Museum and Yorkhill Children’s Hospital, at the very bottom of Eastvale Place, lies The Poetry Club – venue for this second of two nights of live music from WHITE. With no signs on the exterior, I take my chance on the one open door and find myself in the “uniqueContinue reading “WHITE at The Poetry Club, 20/2/15”
