Acrylic and Mt. Doubt to play The Tooth & Claw in September.
Purveyors of “atmospheric indie-pop”, or “cascading dark-pop”, Mt. Doubt are joining their label mates, atmospheric alt-rockers, Acrylic on two dates.
Mt. Doubt, originally the brainchild of Leo Bargery, have grown in numbers and stature over the past two years. Slots at T In The Park, Belladrum cementing the momentum from the band’s last EP ‘The Loneliness of the TV Watchers’. “Naturally it’s indebted to a lot of the music” Leo said explaining his approach, adding “I’ve listened to over the years from bands like The National to Sparklehorse to Frightened Rabbit… There’s certainly a depressive theme running through there!”
Quoting similar influences to Mt. Doubt, Acrylic earned the description of “Engrossing and compelling” by Ravechild, whilst getting on-going support from the likes of Vic Galloway and Creative Scotland through Young Scot Nurturing Talent fund. With talent also comes a little luck , the band finding a manager after the guitarist’s mother called in to Dermot O’Leary show on Radio 2.
The evening celebrates the launch of ACRYLIC and Mt. Doubt’s AA side 7″ vinyl , released by Scottish Fiction Records, which features ‘Where I Lie’ and ‘Mouthwash’.
