Nobody really knows who this Scottish act are yet, so The Great Escape is the perfect opportunity to see what all the (industry) fuss is about. There are rumours they used to be a cheesy chart band, but on the strength of their Soundcloud material, which faintly recalls post-punk and Bowie, there’s much more depth to them than naysayers might assume.

WHITE are a hurtling juggernaut of synth stabs, razor-sharp guitars and even sharper attire. A cacophony of pink noise, huge drums, infectious hooks & an explosive frontman channelling Jacques Brel & Nick Cave. The Glasgow five-piece are turning heads with debut song “Living Fiction”, the NME calling it “the kind of full-blown space wig-out Bowie would be proud of”. Unpredictable and thrilling.
