C Duncan / January, February and May 2017 UK/Irish Tour

 
By on Wednesday, 11th January 2017 at 9:00 am
 

C Duncan, aka Scottish electronic singer/songwriter and bedroom producer Christopher Duncan, released his second album ‘The Midnight Sun’ back in October. I reviewed it back here last autumn. Naturally, he’s got a whole slew of live dates to celebrate and support his latest amazing work. Previously, he announced a January and February 2017 UK tour; all these dates are listed first below. Duncan will also be busy in March: he has been announced as the primary support act during Elbow‘s UK tour that month.

As if he wasn’t clocking up the miles in the UK enough with his previously announced shows, he has also added another group of live dates in May, starting with three shows in Ireland, followed by additional dates in the UK. Phew. These new dates just revealed are listed below as well. The newest May shows go on sale this Friday, the 13th of May. Really, you don’t have an excuse not to see C Duncan live! ‘The Midnight Sun’ is now available from FatCat Records. For more on Duncan’s music on TGTF, use this link.

Video of the Moment #2202: Blossoms

 
By on Monday, 17th October 2016 at 6:00 pm
 

Stockport band Blossoms are currently in America, playing at the Bardot in Hollywood tonight after a sold out show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn and another at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop. While they’ve been in America, the new promo video for ‘Blown Rose’ has been revealed to the world. It follows a different, shall we say more whimsical video for the song when it was released as a single last year.

In this new video version of ‘Blown Rose’, there’s loads of imagery – lit candles, Catholicism (?) – and I guess naturally for a group of lads, a vampy model-type woman. Is she a femme fatale or a woman scorned? Find out by watching the promo below. Blossoms’ self-titled debut album is out now on Virgin EMI, and you can read my review of it through here. While I was away in Ireland, the band announced a four-pack of shows on the Emerald Isle, stopping in Belfast, Galway, Limerick and Dublin in March 2017, which are on sale now. They’ll be supported by Derry’s Touts, who you can read about in my review of Friday night at Hard Working Class Heroes 2016 tomorrow afternoon. To read more of TGTF’s coverage on the band from Stockport, go here.
