The Scotland based synthwave project Saint McCabe released the début three track eponymous single yesterday.
Easily flighted darts of electronica wriggle through the room one moment of infectious dance-beat in another a dark shadowy presence, what marks out Saint McCabe a clear space of its own is the impressive and expressive vocal which is able to deliver a lilting cadence of ever changing movement.
The opening track on the single (available on bandcamp) is Now I Clean For Pleasure.

Unhurriedly drifting through the room milkd deliver music which invites the listener to lay back on a soft blanket and allow the music to wind away the stresses of the day as the reverberating echo of guitar, softly brushed vocal and warming keys cosset the ears.
From the four track EP (available on bandcamp) the second – When I Get To You.
The Scottish rock’n’roll quartet, Shambolics, released the single Chasing A Disaster on the 5th.
Transporting the listener from the Eastern coast of Scotland to the South Western coast of the USA in Chasing A Disaster; Shambolics take the listener to a Californian retro-surf ride.
A bleeding guitar slips out of the speakers to the accompaniment of a ferris-wheel percussion as the pulsing bass rotates through the ears while a laid-back vocal shimmers, akin to a brightly sunlight cloud floating high in the sky, leaving the listener pondering of time on the beach on a warm summers day.
There is nothing to do other than skim out to sea, to catch the coasters.
The Scottish experimental-rock quintet The Rotations put out a couple of tracks last week.
Extracting Gold From Fleas has a primordial beat that takes the listener on to a chanting fireside dance with the music seeping its way deep in to the marrow of the bones as it laments of a world turned sour by selfish greed.
The Scottish melancholic-rock quartet Motion released their eponymous EP on the 9th.
The air fills with a palpable sense of sadness as the music floats through the air on extended glittering delayed guitar notes with a double time percussion giving the feeling of two platelets moving at different speeds revolving around each other, which gives the songs their shadowy texture, through which bass fades in and out of earshot while a sorrowful echoing vocal rounds out the immersive sounds created by Motion.
