Channelling the late 70’s CBGB’s era of New York city’s punk rock scene, Glasgow two-piece Bad Mannequins have now revealed their raucous sound to a new generation. The debut EP Deny Til U Die Part I is out now via Triple Denim.
Taking inspiration from the likes of Electric Six, The Hives, Television, Ramones and B-52s, the second song they ever wrote was immediately picked up by US TV show Limitless with their track ‘No Easy Way Out’ being used in the opening moments of the first episode.
Betty & The Bass
This vibrant three piece have been bringing country/grunge vibes to Central Scotland for almost 3 years now in a variety of projects. Lyndsey, Ben & Willie take influence from the likes of Johnny Cash, Pixies & Fleetwood Mac, creating a unique style that sets them aside from your average indie band.
Edinburgh-based Fuzzystar perform indie rock filled with narrative, melodies and lo-fi fuzz. Clash described them as «Off-kilter indie pop laden with dream-like fuzz» whilst Gigslutz reckon their music contains «Infectious reverb strewn hooks». Other comparisons have been made to Built to Spill, GBV, Sun Kil Moon and Dinosaur Jr.
With a debut album positively received and airplay on BBC 6 Music and Radio Scotland, 2017 is turning into a good year for these guys.
