ONE of our festival highlights this summer was seeing The Vegan Leather perform at Electric Fields in August.
The art-pop four piece from Paisley surfaced in 2014 with the infectious song Days Go By. Recently, their track This House has been deftly remixed by Lewis Gardiner from Prides, complete with a meaty bassline, and it threatens to upstage his own compositions. The new version will be launched on Friday at Glasgow’s Broadcast, as part of the free Basement Sessions night, with the video due to get its first airing on Tenement TV (www.tenementtv.com). You can get a sneak preview of the remix on this link, http://bit.ly/1Y4pJUV, as well as a French version of Days Go By (Les Jours Passent), with accordion accompaniment. The band return to the stage for the EmuBands Christmas party on 3 December. facebook.com/TheVeganLeather.
