SKJØR are a Scottish indie band with dark, haunting vocals and dreamy guitars, tipped by Vic Galloway of BBC Radio Scotland as one of the most promising bands to watch this year. The teenagers recorded their debut BBC Music Introducing live session in the summer and gained slots at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, BBC at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Electric Fields. | musicglue.com/skjor
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.
