“White” (Leo Condie – Singer, Hamish Fingland – Guitar, Chris Potter – Guitar, Lewis Andrew – Bass and Kirstin Lynn – Drums) are kick-starting their 2016 with a new single, “Living Fiction”. It’s a song that has been in their live set ever since their first show. Indeed such is the talent that the wee Glaswegians have that Timeout included them on their “ones to watch” list for 2016.
There’s almost an 80’s sound to it that’s been dragged into the now with some rock/pop thrown in for good measure. Watching Condie reminded me a little of the legendary Ian Curtis visually, but that’s down to the video’s quirky mesmerising visuals. Soundwise, there’s something a lot more mainstream which should see the band do well commercially, but Condie occasionally makes the brave move and opts for a more raw sound. It shouldn’t work, but it does! Go figure.
I expect to see this band get more airplay on top of what they’re already getting from Annie Mac and co and go on to better commercial success. They deserve it.
