‘We Like You’ is the latest track from Edinburgh’s Errant Boy. Released today it’s a neatly served slice of jangly indie pop. The jaunty guitar and drums drive things along nicely from start to finish. Yet again Errant Boy’s lyrics invite you to see the world from their somewhat crooked viewpoint, the distinctive vocal delivery casting dark shadows under the light of the backing track.
Be warned, this track is a serious grower, one more play will not be enough. With an album due later in the year ’We Like You’ is a more than decent appetiser which will leave you wanting to hear much more.

It’s hard to believe that L-Space were only formed in the latter part of 2016 given the total self-assurance they bring to what they are doing. Previous tracks from the dream pop band have seen them conjure up a remarkably vivid alternative sonic universe, a place made more attractive by the realisation that weirdness is never too far away.
Now signed to the wonderfully named ‘Last Night From Glasgow’ label their new single ‘Suneaters’ sees the band continue to take large strides forward. The slow burning start provides space for Lily Higham’s alluring otherworldly vocal to hook you in to the bands vision of a better future, a world where the big energy companies have been consigned to history as we harness the pure clean energy of the sun.
What really impresses here is how the track builds perfectly, layers are added seamlessly before the track reaches a wonderful guitar driven climax which should have you punching the air with delight. With an album release planned for later in the year, 2018 could prove to be a big year for L-Space and on the evidence so far, they deserve all the plaudits that are sure to be headed their way.
