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.
