The five-piece were formed a year ago, they've already filmed a set for BBC Introducing, and they've just returned from successful sets at The Great Escape and Dot To Dot festivals.
Their unconventional pop isn't a million miles away from fellow Glaswegians Franz Ferdinand; dramatic lead vocals (Leo Condie), Roxy Music guitar riffs (Hamish Fingland and Chris Potter), tommy gun bass lines (Lewis Andrew) and addictive disco drums (Kirstin Lynn). 'Future Pleasures' is out 05.07.15 on RCA Records.
Raw Meat: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores we should look up, what’s the scene like where you’re from?
WHITE: We headlined two nights at The Poetry Club for our first Glasgow shows. It’s out of the way, under the railway and next to a warehouse full of artists' studios. It feels exclusive, a Weimar-era speakeasy meets Lower East Side NYC. We love it.
Optimo are a classic Glasgow label we're into - check out their release of The Junto Club’s new EP. Look out for Dead Beet Records, a noisy singles label who put on fabulously dangerous gigs in town. Love Music is the best record shop there is.
Name one track/ band that you love from the past.
Name one track/ band that you’re loving right now.
Viet Cong - their debut album will blow minds and speakers.
Name one track/ band that you think we should be listening out for in the future.
You will be listening to Lilac Pin. Check out 'Come Inside' on their Soundcloud, it's stunning.
What are you up to now?
Making our record, hammering out synth lines on an MS20, swamping everything in reverb, covering all we see in pink writing.
What can we expect from you next?
All of it. Everything.
