Touted as the natural successors to the mantle currently held by the likes of Battles, Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem, post-electro band ERRORS formed in Glasgow in 2004, a union between Simon Ward, Stephen Livingstone and Greg Paterson.
On the back of a 3 track demo recorded in Simon’s bedroom the band quickly set about making a name for themselves in their hometown with their unique take on Electro. Errors merged spiky new-wave guitars with deep bass-y Acid sounds with a knack for melody and pop hooks beyond their years. The band were soon taken under the wing of Mogwai who signed them to their Rock Action label alongside the likes of Part Chimp and James Orr Complex.
Errors manage to retain the elements of new-wave and acid-house that marked their early releases and build on it; a merge of angular guitars, spiraling, euphoric synths and informed dance sounds underpinned by truly mesmerising beats and rhythms in expansive, ambitious style.
THE TWILIGHT SAD are an indie band from Kilsyth, Scotland, and they combine folk influences with a more experimental live sound to create exciting indie music. Drawing on musicians such as Daniel Johnston, Arab Strap and Leonard Cohen, they write songs about their own experiences in the town they grew up in. Their recordings are richly layered, but live they create a more intense experience with a visceral wall of sound.
