The Deadline Shakes
Glasgow based band The Deadline Shakes emerged in 2012 with debut single ‘Sweeten The Deal’. This was quickly followed by a free single, ‘Don’t You Be Too Cool’, and latest single ‘Boy’. Support has been widespread, including radio play from Steve Lamacq, Tom Robinson (6 Music) Vic Galloway and Jim Gellatly. Press has included Artrocker and The List. The Deadline Shakes have just been confirmed for their first festival date, playing Kelburn Garden Party this summer.
“Really good, a winsome, mandolin-led blast of power-country of the sort Kassidy wish they were making.” The List
“Three and a bit minutes of perfect, chiming euphony.” Louder Than War
The band have featured in several ones to watch for 2013 lists, including Vic Galloway’s Bands to look out for in 2013. They are currently recording their debut album which will be out later this year on Flowers In The Dustbin records.
“This is excellent power-pop. They’re doing fellow Scots, like Teenage Fanclub, proud.” Obscure Sound
“I think it’s got a real classic feel to it. It’s got those Crosby, Stills & Nash harmonies but then… slightly angular new wave. A bit of The Strokes perhaps? I think it’s a classic sounding song.” Vic Galloway, Radio Scotland
“If the thought of going into work this morning is getting you down, then look no further … its happy go lucky charm is assured to put a smile on your face.” The Blue Walrus
“You can hear elements of country, psychedelia, rock, indiepop, sun-kissed beauty and Spectorish grandeur, all jostling for space and each finding their place as though it were second nature… a totally timeless song that will be loved… it’s something of a challenge to listen to without breaking out into a big smile.” Sound of Confusion
Sidney Shaw consists of three twenty-something guys from Glasgow. Their music is an unusual hybrid of different influences such as Bob Dylan, The Pixies and Frightened Rabbit. Their style of music, previously dubbed ‘unpigeon-holeable’, focuses on the raw energy of a live performance . Sidney Shaw have been playing shows around Glasgow since late 2009. With years of writing under their belt they released their first EP ‘Was Here’ in mid 2012. Since their EP launch the band have being going from strength to strength playing frequent shows and increasing their following. Over winter they have been writing more tracks for their eagerly anticipated second EP due for release in late 2013.
