August is coming atcha

7 Aug

Hello fine pop friends! Hope you are all well and perhaps have enjoyed a gig or two since we last spoke. We over at Pop!South HQ sure have! There are two particularly good shows coming up this month that I would like to direct your attention to.

Firstly, we have:

The Middle Ones-web

The Middle Ones return to Glasgow after a much-too-long absence. Anna and Grace create unique anti-folk-inflected indie-pop with swooping vocal harmonies and every instrument they can find. Don’t miss them.

Frozy join The Middle Ones on this tour, bringing their fuzzy, scuzzy, infectious lo-fi indie-pop to the mix. This is just plain good fun, as you might expect from a band describing themselves as “a dream-pop slumber-party”

Our appreciation for Where We Lay Our Heads, like a good indie-pop love affair, started at a house-show. They played a very stripped back show that night but their gorgeous pop sensibilities shone. We are looking forward to a slightly noisier evening this time.

Plan B’s own Nyla will get us started with her Kimya Dawson-inspired anti-folk. Wielding her ukulele and one of the sharpest wits in Glasgow, and always wearing her heart on her sleeve, you can’t possibly listen to Nyla without smiling.

BYOB! And your pals! See you there!

Never content to rest on our laurels, we have another show the next week:

haiku salut-web

Haiku Salut just played Indietracks, will be opening the main stage at Green Man this year, were track of the day on Mojo, and will be supporting for Lau in just a few months. That’s a pretty good year for three Derbyshire lasses!

A New International were formerly The Starlets but are now making music they describe as the combination of street music, carnival, music hall, cabaret, chanson, circus, movies, gypsy, folk + pop.

Last, but certainly not least, we have Ally Kerr, an assured songwriter and fine performer, who has recently released his third album, Viva Melodia. Beautifully melodic, folk-tinged pop can be guaranteed!

Come down and say Hey!

If you want to know more about the bands, and maybe see a wee taster, I wrote a guest blog for Last Year’s Girl as well!
