Scottish six piece Quickbeam who performed in session for us back in April last year have today released a free download and exclusive video of album track ‘Grace’. Part funded by Creative Scotland, the self-titled album is due for release on 3rd June through Scottish label Comets & Cartwheels.
‘Grace’ exhibits the elements that have made Quickbeam ones to watch in 2013 – gorgeous harmonies are accentuated by soothing cello and piano as the track stravaigs toward a climatic outro laden with driven drum beats and distorted guitar.
And for those that missed their Folk Radio UK Session here it is again:
Quickbeam will be celebrating the launch of their debut album at a very special event in the disused Victorian swimming pool of Govanhill Baths on 31st May 2013. Having secured funding from PRS For Music Foundation in order to stage a special series of events, this show will see Quickbeam collaborate with local artist Annie Crabtree (Picture Window) and Becca Thomas (Pidgin Perfect) to produce a very special event experience that encompasses environmental artistry, projection, theatrics, and of course Quickbeam’s own brand of majestic and cinematic music. The night will also include a full band performance from label-mates Fake Major, and Comets and Cartwheels official partners Brewdog will be providing the bar.
Tickets for the event can be purchased from the Tickets Scotland website.
