New Scottish music: Book Group
ALTERNATIVE pop-rock quartet Book Group formed in Edinburgh in late 2012 from four separate bands.
They’ve subsequently released two EPs, in addition to the excellent single Victory Lap via Gerry Loves Records last year. New single Late Show is officially released on Friday but it’s exclusively unveiled to Scotland on Sunday readers today at https://soundcloud.com/book-group/late-show-1/s-lRRhe. Produced by Garry Boyle (Broken Records), the track is taken from their debut album, The Great Indoors, scheduled for self-release next spring. An exciting live act, Book Group have clocked up numerous festival appearances and craft infectious, melody-driven songs, with insightful lyrics, pounding drums, guitars, synths and even megaphones. Currently on a UK tour, remaining live dates include the Green Room in Perth on Thursday and the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen on Friday. See https://www.facebook.com/bookgroupband.
