New Scottish music: Bloodlines

A young quartet from Fort William, currently based in Glasgow, Bloodlines have played Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, ButeFest, Tenement Trail and secured airplay from the likes of Vic Galloway and Jim Gellatly.


The band kicked off 2016 with a sold out headline show at King Tut’s, promoting the release of their debut EP Love The Taste, and we witnessed them deliver a flawless, high-energy set at last week’s XpoNorth Festival. They play the T Break Stage at T in the Park on 8 July (selected by music industry judges from more than 1,000 entries), with a pre-festival show at Glasgow’s Hug & Pint on 5 July.
