"Clash Magazine"

Theirs is an ever-evolving musical voyage gliding somewhere between The Earliers' psychedelic pulse, Arab Strap's woozy wonder-pop and an explosion in an Indie vinyl pressing plant. - Clash Magazine

"News Of The World"

They look like vagrants – but when it comes to ideas, they're one of the richest bands around. FOUND sound like a punch-up between Paolo Nutini and Captain Beefheart. - News Of The World

"Dazed And Confused"

DIY folk quintet FOUND treat their songs like scientific art experiments, throwing in glitches and the clunks of random household objects. Their excellent second LP has strong hints of the Beta Band and Tunng, but singer Ziggy Campbell's discount-whisky croon is unmistakable. - Dazed And Confused

"Observer Music Monthly"

Lead singer Ziggy Campbell's introspective patter and crisp tone guide you through the musical undergrowth. Along the way there are frolicsome tubas ('Some Fracas of a Sissy'), serenading mandolins ('Gifted'), and a sampler versus distortion pedal catfight ('Reshaping'), showcasing the experimental terrain that now defines nu folk. - Observer Music Monthly

"Drowned In Sound"

Their sound is so progressive, so completely unique, it’s demeaning to tie it to the stale confines of a label. Instead, we should be celebrating the euphoria created by their extraordinary kaleidoscopic soundscapes. 9/10 - Drowned In Sound

"Q Magazine"

Sampled sounds wrestle it out with jagged bursts of electronica across songs that lurch around like shouty drunks
on a week-long bender. - Q Magazine

"Word Magazine"

Both band name and album title are spot on. Like musical beachcombers, Edinburgh quintet FOUND take full advantage of whatever washes up on their shore that’s capable of making a noise and build up a delightfully wonky collage of sound with their haul. It’s an approach that bears particularly juicy fruit – the combination of the experimental with a keen ear for a simple, to-the-quick melody making them sound not unlike their label boss King Creosote holed up in a studio with Brian Eno - Word Magazine

"Clash Magazine (SXSW review)"

Second up are FOUND, an alt-folk band from Edinburgh treading a unique sonic furrow and looking to ignite this year from an entirely self-lit touch paper. Picking up at the crossroads where the Beta Band buried their electronically infused indie, FOUND add more croon, equal dashes of playful keyboards and some cortex-whipping digital shenanigans. With many a song heavily conceptualised around their slacker art projects or vagrant technologies exploited for their own amusement, there’s more to this FOUND band than you can find on their self-printed, self-designed seven-inches that are being squirreled away by sensible and passionate anoraks. Singer Ziggy’s self proclaimed “discount whisky croon” has enough space to stand aside of other vocalists, and represents a fresh voice from the Scottish scene. The boyhood feel of fun from the rest assures them a steady climb into little expectation yet assured, if cult, adoration. - Clash Magazine

"The Scotsman's 10 Essential Edinburgh Bands"

What are Found, exactly? Sometimes they’re a pop band, whose winning blend of electronica, space rock and samples recalls the Beta Band with a dash of Bowie and Brian Eno. Sometimes they make art projects – they met at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen – and are as likely to be making sound installations at Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden, or inventing a robot band (their next project, to be unveiled later this year) as they are playing at T in the Park. Sometimes they combine the two, staging visually striking live events. It’s a rare combination, and has won them a diverse and growing audience. AE - The Scotsman

FOUND is the brainchild of art college buddies: Ziggy Campbell (lead vocals, guitar), Tommy Perman (bass guitar, synth) and Kev Sim (electronics, percussion). The band create an unusual mix of garage rock, melodic pop and glitchy electronica, which has just lead to them signing a publishing deal with the highly respected Domino Records and a recording deal with Glasgow's Chemikal Underground (who launched Mogwai and Arab Strap's careers).

FOUND began life as an experimental arts collective putting on many weird and wonderful events in art galleries, warehouses and even storage containers.

Their most recent project, an emotional robot band called Cybraphon, captured the attention of the world’s press. Since its unveiling at the Edinburgh International Festival at the start of August, Cybraphon has been featured on national newspapers across the world (e.g. China, Brazil, Italy, Spain, UK), made the top story on the homepage of and has been covered by CNN and TV networks internationally including BBC’s primetime arts show The Culture Show.

FOUND made their American debut at SXSW in March 2009 and followed up with a string of performances at CMJ in October 2009 where Brooklyn Vegan picked them out as ones to watch. In the UK they have built up a strong fan base and highlights of their live career to date include the BBC Electric Proms, T in the Park, Triptych, Brighton's Great Escape, the Fence Collective’s ‘Homegame’ festival and Hydro Connect Festival.

Their self-released debut ‘Found Can Move’ earned them an impressive amount of UK national radio play including support from BBC Radio 1 djs, Steve Lamaq, Rob Da Bank, Huw Stevens and Vic Galloway. They’ve recorded radio sessions for BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Scotland including a recording in John Peel’s studio at Maida Vale. They also recorded an exclusive live session in the legendary ‘Beatles Studio’ at Abbey Road for US radio station U-Pop XM 29.

FOUND have a prolific output with two full-length albums and numerous singles / EPs in the last two years, with releases on Fence Records [UK], Creeping Bent [UK] and Aufgeladen Und Bereit [Germany]. The band have also become sought-after remixers and have recently applied their creative imaginations to reworking the music of King Creosote (Warner), Make Model (EMI), Attic Lights (Island) and Au Revoir Simone (Moshi Moshi).
