Our Girl- ‘No Big Deal’

Our Girl, is the other band belonging to Soph Nathan of The Big Moon and they have just release their debut EP ‘Normally’.

‘No Big Deal’ is full of shoegazy guitars that seem to get heavier as the track progresses, yet there are touches of delicateness too that balance it all out.

Despite this, the vocals are soft and almost whispered, providing an eerie contrast to the rest of the song.

Supposedly, a number of songs on the new EP are about emotional distance and this is exhibited clearly within the lyrics of ‘No Big Deal’.

Also, the video is an intriguing one, giving off a sort of vibe akin to Nirvana’s Nevermind album cover with the band submerged under water. Definitely worth a listen.

The Valkarys (Just Like) Flying With God

Formed in 2006, The Valkarys are an Edinburgh based psychedelic/garage band. Songwriter Scott Dunlop on lead vocals and guitar is joined by Craig Birrell on lead guitar, Colin Brennan on bass and Wayne Hoy on drums.

The quartet first came to the attention of UK radio stations with their debut single ‘Candy Girl’, released in 2006 on Diffusion Records.  The single was supported by a two week UK tour that won the band a stong fanbase through their blistering live appearances.

‘(Just Like) Flying With God’ follows the success of two well received EPs ‘Chloroform’ and ‘Psychodelica’, extensive UK tours and a coveted support slot with Exit Calm.

The Valkarys recently returned to Edinburgh and are set to increase their profile further with this highly anticipated release, their most innovative and cutting edge collection of songs to date.
