Combining elements of dream pop, R&B, shoegaze and post rock, Rev Magnetic revolves around the core of long-time Mogwai collaborator Luke Sutherland (Long Fin Killie, Bows), Audrey Bizouerne (Gift Horse), Sam Leighton (Live w/ Prides, ST.MARTiiNS, So Many Animal Calls) and Gregor Emond who played with Luke in a band called Hynd way back before the birth of the internet.
While touring the world as guest multi-instrumentalist with Mogwai, Luke Sutherland (Long Fin Killie, Bows, Music A.M.) used the downtime to sketch a bunch of songs. Once he got home, he wrote a handful more and recorded them with the help of a few friends at his cottage on the edge of the Scottish Highlands. The result was an album’s worth of material with references ranging from My Bloody Valentine to Teebs, Lemmy-era Hawkwind to ABBA, Vaughan Williams to Boulez
Scottish tour launching their highly acclaimed new album on ONR records “Terror eyes”.

There is an impressive maturity and attention to detail in Zoe Graham’s music that sets this accomplished young songwriter apart from her peers. On stage, you will find her either with band or fleshing out the instrumentation with loop pedals on solo outings.
But when Zoe pares it back to just a vocal and acoustic guitar, as she does on the achingly poignant The Anniesland Lights (from her recent Hacket & Knackered EP), that is when you know you’re in the company of someone very special indeed. Championed by BBC Radio Scotland‘s Roddy Hart and with multiple Celtic Connections appearances to her name, Zoe Graham’s understated charms will not stay below the radar for much longer.
Scotch has always had its unique sound and obstinate theatrical interpretations. Some may describe the style of Scotch as Folk Rock, Theatric Punk, Balkan Ska or Celtic Baroque Rock. In the end, all will agree that you have to see a live show to meet the Scotch experience.
