Hailing from Glasgow, Voodoos made their mark on an already bustling music scene after releasing their Debut EP, ‘Late Night, Early Morning’. Since then, they have built up an impressive following and, in the summer of 2019, the band were invited to play several festivals including Y Not, Tramlines and Neighbourhood Festival.
The release of the 2019 single ‘Do it To Myself’ then saw the band sell out two consecutive headline shows in their hometown. The latter of these shows sold out within hours of going on sale and took place in the famous King Tuts Wah Wah Hut. Following this sell-out, Voodoos were invited to embark on tour with The Lathums, putting on impressive shows and completing their first run of dates south of the border. Towards the end of December the band joined The Futureheads on their QMU headline show in Glasgow and Retro Video Club on their sold out headline show in The Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh. In just over a year Voodoos have gained well over half a million streams on Spotify alone while NME says, “Voodoos are a riotous outfit to be missed at your peril”.
Lurching forth from Glasgow’s dingy basement venues, Snash have gained a cult following around the country. With raucous and energetic live shows, have also gained radio play on bbc radio 1 and multiple Spotify and Apple Music playlists. Snash have put their own deranged twist on garage punk with ear splitting riffs and society challenging lyrics. A band you need to know.
Gallus are a 5 piece band from Glasgow known for their raucous live shows and tongue-in-cheek attitude. The band draw from an eclectic range of sonic influences under the broad church of punk music - with anthemic pop tunes such as ‘Looking Like A Mess’ and heavier songs with sarcasm laden lyrics such as ‘Actual Factual’.
Following a string of sold out performances throughout 2019 and early 2020, including a sold out headline show at Glasgow’s King Tut’s, the popularity of Gallus’s unique sound and vicious live performances has been further reflected in their nomination in the SAMA’s ‘Best Live Act’ category for 2019 and selection for 2021’s TRNSMT Festival line up. With their most ambitious releases to date scheduled throughout 2020, there’s no sign of relenting for Gallus.

Amongst releasing a number of highly appraised singles - Lust,Employee of the month and EP - CSC the band have more recently broadcast their energy filled shows around the globe, showcasing their Passionate lyrics and contagious songs at Texas music festival, SXSW in 2019. Just this year, the ‘modern day clash’ 4-piece band released their latest single, Sign of the Times under record label, 7 west, in reaction to the recent economic challenges facing thousands of individuals across the world as a result of the global pandemic. The future looks bright for Rascalton as they look forward to playing TRNSMT 2021 amongst other shows and festivals.
