We’re getting plenty of excellent Scottish musicians through at the moment.
Our very own Jim Gellatly can scarcely move for wonderful music north of the border these days. Proof of Scotland’s musical popularity can even be found in the upper reaches of The Amazing Chart – with current chart-toppers Holy Esque joined in the Top 20 by Midnight Lion, Django Django, Errors and Three Blind Wolves.
While the vast majority of it hails from the Glasgow area, it’s nice to be able to champion the cause of something rather wonderful from Edinburgh in the column too. Step forward ambitious electronic trio Discopolis, whose new single Zenithobia was released on Monday and is a reet treat for the ears.
Fergus, Laurie and Dave deal in washed-out synth-tronica of the highest order, with Zenithobia showcasing the band’s obvious capacity to blend the mildly euphoric with the gently pulsating. They’ve produced four and half minutes of sky-high bliss, perfectly suited for the wee hours. Check out the video here.
