Eves de­but sin­gle go­ing down a storm at BBC

Wishaw Press - - MEMORY LANE -

Mu­si­cal duo The Eves are hop­ing their first sin­gle will be the cat­a­lyst for suc­cess af­ter BBC ra­dio sta­tions picked up on their de­but re­lease.

Marissa Keltie, orig­nally from Coat­bridge, and Caro­line Gil­mour have re­leased Tides, the ini­tial re­lease from an up­com­ing al­bum which the pair re­vealed is al­most fully recorded and will be out next year.

A tour is in the off­ing as well to pro­mote the al­bum and Marissa, who also works full-time in a ses­sion band, be­lieves it’s an “ex­cit­ing time” for the tal­ented duo.

She said: “Tides is grow­ing in mo­men­tum at the mo­ment.

“Some BBC sta­tions have An­drew Bargh picked up on the track and we’re get­ting a lot of play on in­ter­net pod­casts as well as lo­cal sta­tions like Rock­sport, Cam­glen and Amaz­ing Ra­dio.

“We’re chuffed as it’s only been a week since it was re­leased so it’s a very ex­cit­ing time.

“We’re just back from Copen­hagen where we per­formed acousitc sets at house con­certs for our fol­low­ing there.

“We’re cur­rently work­ing on fin­ish­ing the record­ing of the al­bum and putting a band to­gether.

“We’ll be or­gan­is­ing a Scot­tish tour to show­case the al­bum next year, fol­lowed by dates fur­ther afield in the UK.”

Com­ment­ing on their de­but sin­gle, Marissa con­tin­ued: “Tides is one of the first songs we wrote to­gether and it cap­tured a mo­ment in time when we had just met and the song­writ­ing en­ergy was flow­ing.

“It’s a song about con­nec­tion which is so im­potant when writ­ing mu­sic.

“We both knew of each on the mu­sic scene in Ed­in­burgh but had never met, then I ap­proached Caro­line about writ­ing orig­i­nal mu­sic.

“We clicked mu­si­cally and the songs flowed.”

Re­flect­ing on fall­ing in love with mu­sic while grow­ing up in Coat­bridge, Marissa added: “The teach­ers at St Pa­trick’s High were a big part of why I’m per­form­ing.

“Their in­flu­ence and en­thu­si­asm at that time in my life was key to de­vel­op­ing my mu­si­cal skills and helped set me on the path of what I do to­day.

“I’m so lucky to be able to write and per­form mu­sic as my full-time job.

“We’ve put so much work into our de­but sin­gle and it feels great to re­ceive such a warm re­cep­tion.”
