FIVE MORE TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2019

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Cover Story -

ZOE GRA­HAM (above)

A ridicu­lously young Weegie singer­song­writer, Gra­ham has been a reg­u­lar on the city’s live cir­cuit in re­cent years. Last year’s Hacket & Knack­ered EP gave a taster of her tal­ents, most no­tably on the gor­geous heart­breaker The An­nies­land Lights. She plays King Tut’s on Jan­uary 24 as part of Celtic Con­nec­tions.

WALT DISCO

In­die fans of a cer­tain age this way. Walt Disco, based in Glas­gow, might be the near­est thing we have to a 21st-cen­tury Or­ange Juice. They play King Tut’s on Jan­uary 19, sup­ported by Weegie hope­fuls Crys­tal.

AN­DREW WASYLYK

Fans of Nils Frahm and Max Richter should check out Dun­do­nian An­drew Wasylyk’s new al­bum The Par­alian when it comes out in Fe­bru­ary. Front man of The Hazey Janes, Wasylyk has a gor­geous side line in com­pos­ing at­mo­spheric min­i­mal­ist con­tem­po­rary mu­sic. Wasylyk plays the Voodoo Rooms in Ed­in­burgh on Jan­uary 30; the Gar­dyne The­atre, Dundee on Jan­uary 31 and The Blue Ar­row, Glas­gow on Fe­bru­ary 1 as part of Celtic Con­nec­tions.

LOVE SICK

Julie Knox and Shaun Can­ning make slick, stylish, of-the-mo­ment syn­th­pop un­der the Love Sick ban­ner. Sir El­ton John is a fan ap­par­ently. They re­leased their de­but EP No Sleep in Novem­ber.

APACHE DAR­LING (ABOVE)

These days Apache Dar­ling are a proper unashamed pop band (which is, of course, the best thing any band can be) fronted by Ste­fanie Lawrence who is a surely a star in the mak­ing. See if you agree when they play The Mash House in Ed­in­burgh on Jan­uary 31.
