Wolf Girl

22 Feb
We’re very excited to have Wolf Girl making their “hairy scary garage pop“ for us on March 26th. GoldFlakePaint called their single ‘Deep Sea Diver’ “as melodious and utterly delectable as we’ve come to expect.” And if you don’t know what to expect, let me tell you, they are one the most fun bands around! They’re touring to promote ‘We Tried,’ released by quality tastemaker and national treasure Odd Box Records. 2014’s Mama’s Boy EP, released by Soft Power Records, was an instant classic, so no pressure to follow that up with another amazing sonic delight.

Breakfast MUFF  played our Weekender in February and we love them so much we’re having them back already. They make beautiful pop noises and skuzzy punk sounds, often at the same time.

In their own words: “We are a band from Glasgow. We like pizza and writing songs and dancing” This is all true.

In the words of Louder Than War:
“Featuring sometimes deceptively sweet, sometimes manically shrieked vocals and dirty screaming guitars, the band change instruments and lead vocals throughout their live sets. The sound is raw and exciting, no holds barred and sometimes gritty, without losing the ability to hold on to a melody.”
Come down early to avoid missing out on what Song, by Toad has called “bright and breezy retro-tinged garage guitar pop” and “zeitgeisty mix of Britpoppy and more rough and ready garage sound from the late sixties…” Unacompanied, Hillary van Scoy’s dry lyrics and crisp vocals shine. Make sure you get to see why she’s been a mainstay of live music in Glasgow for pure ages.
