From the hot-bed of artists emerging from North of the border comes Glasgow’s latest export. A band that deconstructs everything you thought you knew about Scottish Alt-Rock, and in its place paints an image of soaring post-punk symphony, epic meandering melody and an unstoppable energy tantamount to a Glaswegian bar brawl.
Their name is United Fruit, and they release their explosive new single ‘Open Your Eyes’ on October 27th 2014.
Having performed live sessions for BBC Introducing, BBC Radio Scotland, alongside airtime on the BBC Radio 1 Review Show, the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show, XFM and Capitol FM, United Fruit certainly aren’t without their notches on the music accolade bedpost. When you add to that their multitude of UK and European tours, festival billings, and support shows with the likes of Dananananaykroyd, Twin Atlantic and Twilight Sad, it becomes strikingly apparent that United Fruit truly are rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with.
The band are about to hit SXSW in 2015 as 1 of 7 Scottish showcase artists.
Sonic Youth, At the drive-in, Shellac, And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Trail Of The Dead, Young Legionnaire, Dananananakroyd, Citizens, Neu!, Bronto Skylift, Super Adventure Club, Hey Enemy, Arca Felix, Hey Vampires, Holy Mountain, Rollor, Fatalists, Your Loyal Subjects, Spyamp, Vcheka, Dead or American, Hyena, Mr Peppermint, Frances and her Trampoline, Musicians of Bremen.
