Exit-omni feat. Dear Lara – Wandering on a Night Without Stars
This track brings together two artists from different musical places; dreamy electronica producer and introspective acoustic singer-songwriter, to woozy laid back effect. Exit-Omni; producer Ross Woodhead; and Dear Lara; the stagename of David Lan; weave together well in a track that wouldn’t sound too out of place in Air’s back catalogue.
Malmo – The Bridge
Malmo are a Scottish based three piece who produce epic scale, cinematic, electronic influenced pop.The Bridge shows the band at their best with the track combining John Barry-esque instrumentation with the melancholic feel of Pet Shop Boys in their Behaviour phase.
Wozniak – Five Star
Wozniak are swiftly becoming one of the finest shoe-gaze band’s in Scotland. Hailing from Edinburgh, the four piece are working on their debut album, and Five Star is an insight into their world. It’s a fascinating track with deep complexities.
Twissted – Machines
Twissted are Vicki Milne and Zoe Burnett, a duo based in Glasgow. Their electronic pop is a joy to behold and Machines is a standout track. Presented here in its extended edit, Machines mixes Kraftwerk like synthetic precision with an irresistible pop hook and it is a track that you can’t fail to love.
