"Headline slot ABC2 Glasgow"

Theres a Growning buzz on this Tayside outfit thanks to Empire single and last years impressive Breakdown EP.

Their secret weapons are the compulsive lead guitar playing of Craig Murray and the superb vocals of Ross Milne, who sounds like a hybrid of Liam Gallagher and KOL's Caleb Followill.

Hollowing Feedback introduces the impresive Middleman, a stomping rocker that's equal part Britpop swagger and Velvet drones. It's swiftly followed by the jaunty lad-rock of Beg Steal And Borrow, which is punctuated by squalls of blazing lead guitar.

From then on the set builds to a thundering climax with a storming version of Empire that gallops to a riotous close.

Tonight, though, the highlight has to be the superb Let It All Out. It's misty-eyed ambitious stuff that flaunts the singer's rasping vocal. Inside is a world-beating anthem fighting to get out.
