In August 2017, two of the most progressive and highly regarded new Scottish acts will present their unique brand of lyrical landscape pop at SOUNDING at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Sets by Modern Studies and Lomond Campbell will be accompanied by intricate arrangements played by renowned ten-piece string section The Pumpkinseeds, with brass and voices, in what promises to be a spectacle of contemporary indie talent.
After the success of debut album Swell to Great (★★★★ MOJO (#19 best LP of 2016), ★★★★ Scotsman, ★★★★ List), Modern Studies will present – for the first time – material from their ambitious follow-up LP (to be released early 2018).
Lomond Campbell’s 2016 album Black River Promise (★★★★ Scotsman, ★★★★ Record Collector, ★★★★ List) will be presented in its entirety.
SOUNDING will take place over three nights – 20-22 August 2017 – during the Edinburgh Fringe, in the beautiful Stockbridge Church, a Georgian building with stunning acoustics.
The show will feature special projections, an exclusive publication and downloads given out free to ticket holders, and a bar run by The Glad Cafe.
Tickets are on general sale at £12 through the Fringe Box Office.
