EMERGING from seemingly nowhere at the tail end of last year, Dundee-based duo St.Martiins have wasted little time in asserting themselves within Scotland’s diverse scene.
Set to support Pronto Mama at their album launch/ triumphant victory lap at The Art School next Friday, the pair have definitely ensured that there’ll be a captive audience awaiting their arrival with the wondrous ‘Othr Grls.’
Their strongest work to date in many respects, their latest offering builds on the foundations of shimmering indie and sleek pop that shined through on tracks such as ‘About U’ and expanded on them with aplomb. Accessible and yet in no way saccharine or overwrought, the emphatic vocal performance proves to be the perfect sparring partner for the track’s vibrant guitar lines which fuse the more experimental garage rock dalliances of The Strokes’ Nick Valensi with the demure slickness of the 1975.
St.Martiins will headline King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut on the 30th June with support from SKJOR and Pacatmos. Check out the track below via Spotify:
