Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Ian Bunting

A top up-and-com­ing La­nark­shire rock band are hop­ing to cast a spell on the mu­sic world with their lat­est EP.

Voodoo Mind Con­trol launched the four-track ‘Jan­uary’ with a gig in Glas­gow’s Old Hair­dressers venue last week.

The alt-rock quar­tet have per­formed to­gether since 2009 and was set up by Air­drie man Robert Reaoch (gui­tarist) and Coat­bridge pair Cameron McDougall (bass) and He­len Far­row-Thoms (vo­cals, gui­tar, key­board).

Com­plet­ing the line-up is drum­mer Stu­art Mackey, who was orig­i­nally from Australia and now lives in Glas­gow.

‘Jan­uary’ is the fol­low-up to Voodoo Mind Con­trol’s well re­ceived 2013 EP ‘Witch Hunt’ and the band are ex­cited to fi­nally re­lease their new tunes to the public.

Gui­tarist Robert, 26, said: “We re­leased ‘Witch Hunt’ a cou­ple of years ago and were hugely sat­is­fied with how it went.

“We have re­leased ‘Jan­uary’ our­selves and hope that the EP can gain us even greater at­ten­tion which may lead to some­thing else, per­haps even big­ger than we’ve pro­duced so far.

“Get­ting your name and mu­sic out there is ex­actly what be­ing in an indie band is all about.”

Robert added: “Be­cause of Stu­art, we tend to fo­cus on play­ing our gigs in Glas­gow.

“But if the op­por­tu­nity came around for us to play in Air­drie or Coat­bridge we would be de­lighted to do so.

“We played a gig in Coat­bridge’s Ea­gle Inn a cou­ple of years ago but it would be great to do more.

“We’d love to get the peo­ple of our home towns in­volved in our mu­sic as it pro­gresses.”

‘Jan­uary’ is avail­able to buy on iTunes and Spo­tify now.
