A glimpse of the future of Scottish music as the T Break lineup includes AmatrArt, Apacehe Darling and Other Humans
With Chvrches and Prides putting Scottish electro pop on the map, this year’s selection of up and-coming talent features synth-wielding acts aplenty. Reminiscent of Two Door Cinema Club, AmatrArt’s hooky electro will sound great in a festival setting. Our Future Glory, Other Humans and Apache Darling are sure to light up the tent with their bright electro pop, complete with huge festival-worthy choruses. For something a little darker, Crash Club expertly fuse EDM with rock, while The Claramassa create heavy electro rock with haunting layered vocals.
SchnarffSchnarff will be dishing up some good old alternative rock, with soaring choruses and great hooks to boot, whilst DIVIDES’ angst-fuelled numbers are bound to inspire a mosh pit or two. Tijuana Bibles are sure to steal a few festival goers from the main stage when they destroy the T Break tent with their stadium-sized sound, à la Queens of the Stone Age.
It wouldn’t be T Break without a sprinkling of guitarry indie bands, and this year is no exception. With their no-fuss indie rock, Dead Man Fall have garnered fans such as US talk show host Craig Ferguson, whilst Catholic Action are being hotly tipped for their smooth-yet-edgy approach. Enjoy a bit of nostalgia? Ded Rabbit take us back to the indie uprising of the mid-00s as The Van Ts provide, in their own words, ‘everything you ever wanted from a 90s dream’.
For fans of acoustic singer-songwriters, don’t miss Gerry Cinnamon and Be Charlotte. Both amazing lyricists, Cinnamon’s music is political at heart, whilst the latter Dundonian delivers some vocal truths with her wordy acoustic pop ditties.
Finally, Spring Break’s music isn’t as easily categorised. Playing folk, funk and hip hop, with dolphin sounds thrown in for good measure, they’re sure to bring something different to the T Break table.
This year’s T Break bands will play the T Break Stage at T in the Park, Strathallan Castle, Perthshire, Fri 10–Sun 12 Jul
