Holy Esque Press
Four-piece outfit Holy Esque from Glasgow, Scotland are ready to release their brand new single titled “Silences” for digital download on February 10th. With a sound that belongs to be on Captured Tracks and vocals from the love child of Dylan Baldi of Cloud Nothings and Ellery Roberts from WU LYF, I haven’t been this nationalistic since I stumbled upon Frightened Rabbit‘s Poke. Recorded in Glasgow’s Gorbals Sound Studios and mixed by double-Grammy award producer Jon SchumannSilences will precede a string of new material set for release this year. Stream the new track Silences below, like them on Facebook and check out their tour dates.

Watch: Frightened Rabbit – “Radio Silence”

Frightened Rabbit by Lisa Klifunis

Scottish alternative folk outfit, Frightened Rabbit have released a video of  frontman Scott Hutchison performing a brand new single titled Radio Silence acoustically. If you prefer to listen to a full band version instead you can stream it on their Soundcloud here. The new track will be on an EP to be released in September, that you can pre-order on iTunes. Watch the video below, check out their tour dates and tell us what you think of their new song in the comments below.

Manchester Orchestra Record Store Day Collaboration

Split Cover
Manchester Orchestra have collaborated with both Grouplove and Frightened Rabbit to produce a 12″ vinyl for release on Record Strore Day. The first of the two tracks, Architect by Manchester Orchestra and Frightened Rabbit, contains the layered vocals of Andy Hull and Scott Hutchison. Throughout this acoustic number you identify with the despondency of the lyrics but are left in awe of the talent of both bands. However this is then juxtaposed with the second track Make It To Me, the Manchester Orchestra and Grouplove collaboration. It is a much more upbeat indie pop song with a sudden influx at various times throughout the song of electronic techno-esque synth which seems out of place. You can stream the collaboration below and tell us your opinion in the comments. It will be available to buy on Saturday, April 20 at participating independent record stores that you can find about here.
