IN today’s music industry, two key attributes that are needed in order to breach its seemingly impenetrable walls are patience and perseverance. Without these two crucial tenets and an unwavering belief in your own abilities, it is almost a foregone conclusion that you’ll fall by the wayside and the acclaim that you thought could have been yours will forever remain a hypothetical proposition.
For Glasgow’s Acrylic, their demonstrable confidence in their own material and resolve have culminated in something truly special with their stirring All I Am EP. Initially teased with the unveiling of the contemplative and soul-baring alt-rock of ‘Where I Lie’, its emergence signified the beginning of a new era for the band which has seen them commandeer the forefront of the fickle tastemakers’ attention like never before.
Set to be officially released to coincide with their King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut headline show on Friday 30th March, TTV are excited to bring you the first exclusive stream of the EP ahead of it making its way to all streaming platforms.
Fraught with emotion and candour from the outset, their first fully fledged release is one that sees them not only ingratiate themselves into the ranks of Scotland’s world renowned alt-rock tradition but make it abundantly clear that there is longevity and originality in their musical chemistry. Intermingling stark sentiments and undiluted home truths with an emphasis on melodies that are nothing short of glorious at full tilt, these four tracks prove that the band’s determination hasn’t been forged on a fallacy and that there’s something discernibly special at the heart of their sound. If you need any further proof of the sheer scale of their talents by the midway point, the staggering conceptual suite that is the EP’s final track will dispel all skepticism and testify to not only their ambitiousness but their stellar execution of lofty ideas that a more timid outfit wouldn’t dare to attempt.

Thursday 29th March- Sneaky Pete’s, Edinburgh
