LIFE MODEL GIG ON SAT 12TH JAN

Life Model headline the Scared To Dance and For The Rabbits gig night on Saturday 12th January at The Victoria.

Entry is free and support comes from The Tubs.

Formed back in 2012, Glasgow’s Life Model are in some ways a testament to the art of taking your time. The quartet’s take on dream pop has seen them gradually accrue a sizeable audience with ever more impressive releases. Their 2017 EP, Lucky, released via Durham’s Frux Tapes label, was a fantastic and fascinating collection, while Real Estate, their offering on a recent split single with fellow-Glaswegian’s Home Economics, was to our ears, their finest track to date.

Making textural soundscapes that hark back to the glory days of shoegaze, Life Model revel in a world of reverberating guitars, crashing drum hits and glorious rumbles of bass. In the centre of all the chaotic noise, Sophie Evans’ vocal adds a crystalline shimmer, that is deserving of the frequent comparisons it receives with The Sundays’ Harriet Wheeler and the Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser.

The Tubs are members of Joanna Gruesome, The Snivellers, Garden Centre and Flowers who try to find the Antipodean Sound. They aim for The Clean, Dick Diver and The Stroppies, misfire and land in strange territory. Here they find The Cleaners from Venus wandering around, and offer them a Tubsmans Salute.

SCARED TO DANCE PODCAST #87

Our new music podcast returns as we pick our favourite tracks from the past month.

Courtney Barnett releases “Crippling Self Doubt and a General Lack of Confidence” from Tell Me How You Really Feel.

We lift “Staying Up Late” from the Cheerbleederz Faceplant EP out now on Alcopop! Records and Austin-based trio Fanclub put out the excellent “Stranger”.

The colloboration between Baxter Dury, Etienne de Crécy and Delilah Holliday continues with “Walk Away” and Charlotte Gainsbourg returns with the superb “Such a Remarkable Day”.

Broken Bells are back for the first time in three years with the standalone “Shelter” alongside the latest from Whitelands, Thom Yorke, Ex:Re, Jeremy Tuplin and Jenny Moore’s Mystic Business.

Also on the podcast there’s Julia Holter, Kurt Vile, Dan Mangan, Juliana Hatfield, Our Girl, Gold Baby, Redford, Hollow Hand and J Fernandez.
