IndianRedLopez and CS Buchan are delighted to announce their forthcoming 7-inch split single Any Given City/Leave It All Behind to be released on Monday, June 16.
The collaboration is the first vinyl release on Fit Like Records, which was founded by CS Buchan himself, and features an impressive list of contributors such as IndianRedLopez, The Little Kicks, Kitchen Cynics and Best Girl Athlete - Buchan’s daughter Katie who’s ethereal vocals feature on both tracks.
Any Given City is the first track taken from the recent IndianRedLopez album, Commit.
The song perfectly encapsulates the sentiment of a superbly crafted album and sums up why it has received praise worldwide for the craft of the band’s ambitious songwriting.
Drawing comparisons to the likes of Mew, Any Given City’s sprawling sounds offer a warmth and beauty only heightened by the interchange of harmonies between Mike Chang and the alluring vocals of Best Girl Athlete.
Leave It All Behind sees CS Buchan continue an exploration of Scottish indie folk that has seen him compared to contemporaries such as Kris Drever, John McCusker, and Roddy Woomble.
A dream-like, rhythmic guitar piece is brought to life by the aforementioned vocals of Katie Buchan (Best Girl Athlete) who’s voice has a warmth and maturity that belies her tender years of just 15-years-old.
Both tracks are a testament to a burgeoning and talented music scene in the north-east of Scotland and a fitting launch for a record label that surely will be one to watch out for in the future.
The single is available to buy at Martin’s Barbers and Symposium Cafe in Peterhead, iiMusic and Captain Toms in Aberdeen, and firstname.lastname@example.org.
