Honeyblood's Essential Scottish Bangers
Scottish duo Honeyblood play Scottish festival Electric Fields at the end of this month, so Cat and Stina have compiled a playlist of their essential Scottish bangers.

Stina Tweeddale

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - The Hammer Song 
My dad got me into SAHB when we used to watch re-runs of the Old Grey Whistle Test. I love 70s rock, especially stuff that has a theatrical twist. 

Arab Strap - New Birds
My best friend made me a mixtape when we were about fifteen and introduced me to Arab Strap. They’ve recently reunited which is very exciting. 

Martha Ffion - No Applause
When Claire put this song online, I must have listened to it a good twenty times and then asked her to support Honeyblood at our next Glasgow show. Be prepared to fall in love. (This isn't on Spotify yet - we've embedded it below - Ed)

Cocteau Twins - Aloysius
A friend at school gave me a copy of Heaven or Las Vegas and I bought ‘Treasure’ from a guy clearing out his LP collection. I love ‘Treasure’ the most because it’s dark in parts whilst still so beautiful.

The Waterboys - Fisherman’s Blues
I got given Mike Scott’s Adventures of A Waterboy as a Christmas gift from my Uncle and have just started reading it. He has written some great songs with universally touching lyrics, which really is the end goal. 

Cat Myers

Idlewild - A Film For The Future
Around 15 years ago I moshed so hard at an Idlewild gig that I passed out... twice. They don’t make mosh pits like they used to.

Hidden Orchestra - Wandering
Two amazing drummers, epic soundscapes and awesome live shows. 

Belle & Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap
This tune brings back great memories from the East Coast American tour we supported them on last year.

Mogwai - Remurdered
So much love for Mogwai. They’ve been on my Discman / minidisc player / MP3 player and iPhone constantly for well over a decade! 

Average White Band - Cut The Cake
Total classic! Funky as and still fresh. 

Give all this a try

The Murder Capital: More is less

The Murder Capital: More is less

The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.

Feelin' hypersonic: Sam Fender

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
Friendly Fires: Can't wait forever

Friendly Fires: Can't wait forever

It’s over eight years since Friendly Fires released their last album, but - after a prolonged period away - they’re finally back on the dancefloor with the shimmering ‘Inflorescent’.
