Glasvegas
Glasvegas
Based in Glasgow, Scotland, indie rock quartet Glasvegas comprises cousins James Allan (singer and principal songwriter) and Rab Allan on guitar, bassist Paul Donoghue, and the drummer Jonna Lofgren. Although they deftly fused a love of doo wop and classic, Spector-produced pop with a nod to some of the more intense and inventive guitar acts of the '80s, perhaps the band's defining attribute was in James Allan's earnest lyricism.

2014 heralds the return of Glasvegas to North America with their critically acclaimed self-produced third studio album, "Later...When the TV Turns to Static", released through BMG. The album was recorded in the band's home town of Glasgow at Gorbals Sound and produced by lead singer and songwriter James Allan. Featuring the singles "I'd Rather Be Dead (Than Be With You)", "If", and the title track "Later...When the TV Turns to Static". The album is a staggeringly emotive 45 minute sojourn through broken relationships and "the mad energy" of the world, a scorching soundscape marking a new chapter for one of the UK's most fervently supported bands, reclaiming their independence and returning to their roots to deliver a record that chimes with the heartfelt social realism they have made their own.
