Hailing from Falkirk but living in Glasgow, Stock Manager are a promising young grunge-influenced pop/rock trio consisting of Melissa Brisbane, Jack Alexander and Christopher Devine. Their self-styled genre – VHS Rock – is a surprisingly accurate description of their sound: dreamy, infectious vocal melodies, a driving rhythm section, guitar-led hooks, alternative while at the same time catchy and accessible.
Stock Manager have been busy building a following in a less than traditional way, by putting on gigs in their friends’ flats across Stirling, Falkirk and Glasgow, with their debut house party attracting an attendance in triple figures in July this year. Accompanying each new single is a retro, VHS-styled music video, and Stock Manager, with their do-it-yourself ethos, flat gigs and cool retro music videos, are one of our top tips for 2020.
