Miss’s want home show

Pair pre­pare for Celtic Con­nec­tions

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Jonathan Ged­des

Ruther­glen band the Miss’s are set to launch their new al­bum at Celtic Con­nec­tions this week – and they would not mind stop­ping by the town hall for a fu­ture show.

Michelle Low and Au­drey Tait will play Broad­cast this Thurs­day, Jan­uary 26, to re­lease Crash, their sec­ond record.

The gig is part of Celtic Con­nec­tions, one of Scot­land’s big­gest mu­sic fes­ti­vals.

How­ever Au­drey, who sings and plays gui­tar in the two­some, fan­cies a gig closer to home.

She said: “I’d love to play Ruther­glen Town Hall, be­cause it’s a great space.

“Any shows I’ve seen there have been re­ally good, so maybe some time down the line, if we can get enough peo­ple to like our stuff, then we could get a wee show in there.

“That’d be sweet. We still play cov­ers in some of the pubs around the area as it is.”

The duo have been pals for years, and both went to Stonelaw High when they were younger.

Af­ter singing and gig­ging to­gether as the Miss’s, they re­leased their first al­bum in 2011.

Then other pro­jects took over, with Au­drey play­ing drums in the suc­cess­ful hip hop band Hec­tor Biz­erk and Michelle the lead singer in Glasville, the Scot­tish tribute act to songs from the Nashville TV show.

How­ever they kept gig­ging to­gether while their other bands were go­ing on, and started writ­ing new songs.

Au­drey said: “It Won’t Hap­pen was the first song we’d writ­ten to­gether af­ter a break from writ­ing.

“We’ve been play­ing gigs dur­ing that time, but that’s when we started writ­ing our own ma­te­rial again and it was all quite nat­u­ral.

“There was a gui­tar part, then Michelle wrote the vo­cals, and we worked on the cho­rus.

“It was so quick, and that was sig­nif­i­cant be­cause that’s the one that got us go­ing again.”

Now they are set to re­lease Crash, which show­cases their dual vo­cals and melodic pop.

Be­ing asked to play Celtic Con­nec­tions was an­other boost for the pair.

Au­drey added: “We were ab­so­lutely de­lighted to be asked to be part of it, be­cause we usu­ally go and see a cou­ple of shows while it’s on – we’d ac­tu­ally al­ready got tick­ets to see Laura Mar­ling (on the open­ing night of the fes­ti­val) be­fore we’d even been booked for it.

“We’ve got some more dates in the diary, so we will be tour­ing it, and we just love mak­ing mu­sic.

“If we can go out and play it to peo­ple then that’s all we’re look­ing to achieve.”

The Miss’s play Broad­cast on Jan­uary 26.

Tick­ets are £6 and doors are 7pm.
