Glasgow-based VanIves perform music from their debut album, Thanks. Friends since their skateboarding Castle Douglas childhood, Roan Ballantyne and Stuart Ramage have pioneered a unique sound. It involves sampling family VHS tapes and “building … songs around the memories attached to those moments”. The result is a seamless blend of analogue and digital. As well as soaring vocals rooted in hip-hop-influenced production methods. Thanks was co-produced and mixed by Fred Cox (Rag N Bone Man, Grace Carter, Mabel) and includes the single, ‘Bardennoch’.

Glaswegian singer-songwriter Kitti gives a spellbinding performance. It's no wonder she's received so many accolades including Best Vocalist in the Scottish Jazz Awards 2020. Blending gritty soul with jazz influences, her soaring voice and thoughtful lyrics have drawn comparisons to Amy Winehouse and Alicia Keys. Her song, 'Chasing The Crowd’, was picked as Record of the Week on BBC Radio Scotland’s Afternoon Show.
