July Spotify playlist
Looking forward to the return of live music, I’ve picked another batch of new sounds from Scotland for my July playlist.
The eclectic mix of Caledonian cool spans dance, pop, rock, indie and folk.
Leading the charge this month are Fife lads Shambolics with their inspirational new single Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams. Guitarist Darren Forbes said: “It’s essentially a song of hope… a song about the ‘Young Teams’ who want to make it out of the schemes and see what’s out there.” The Kirkcaldy-formed band are set to grace the King Tut’s Stage at the TRNSMT festival on September 10, with an October tour taking in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee.
Perth indie favourites Parliamo also feature, moving further into pop territory with the glorious Paul & Barry.
East Lothian singer-songwriter Callum Beattie dips into dance music with Lost Souls. The tune sees him teaming up with Russian EDM duo Harddope.
Fin meanwhile treats us to Carry The Weight. The alias of Edinburgh musician and producer Finlay Mowat, the stylish R&B-tinged track features the wonderful vocals of Glaswegian singer-songwriter Jordan Phillips.
Going down a folk rock path with a nod to Frightened Rabbit are Edinburgh lads Wrest with Second Wind.
Fellow capital band Swim School impress again with Anyway. A grungy indie number it hits all the right spots with Alice Johnson’s stunning vocal reminiscent of the late Dolores O’Riordan of Cranberries fame.
In addition, Glasgow-based rappers Sean Reid and Bemz are heard collaborating on Time. Their contrasting styles working a treat.
Other highlights include the latest rock fuelled stomper from Daytime TV and some mesmerising alt. folk from Cede.
