SOUNDING - Modern Studies & Lomond Campbell with Pumkinseeds Chamber Orchestra (20-22 Aug)

Modern Studies and Lomond Campbell with the Pumpkinseeds Chamber Orchestra

Two of the most progressive and highly regarded new Scottish acts will present their unique brand of lyrical landscape pop at SOUNDING at the Edinburgh Fringe.  Sets by Modern Studies and Lomond Campbell will be accompanied by intricate arrangements played by renowned string section The Pumpkinseeds, with additional brass and voices, in what promises to be a spectacle of contemporary indie talent.

After the success of debut album Swell to Great (★★★★ MOJO (#19 best LP of 2016), ★★★★ Scotsman, ★★★★ List), Modern Studies will present – for the first time – material from their ambitious follow-up LP (to be released early 2018 on Fire Records).

Lomond Campbell’s string-laden album Black River Promise (★★★★ 'sumptuous, romantic strings' Scotsman, ★★★★ ‘the arrangements are superlative’ Record Collector, ★★★★ List) will be presented in its entirety (to be re-released later this year by Heavenly Recordings)

There will be a bar run by the Glad Cafe, and to mark the occasion Triassic Tusk is releasing a limited edition, double A side, 7” vinyl single of the two acts covering each other’s music:
