L-Space in session for Nicola Meighan Program – BBC Scotland – January 21, 2019 – BBC Radio Scotland –
L-Space in session to begin the week. New faces (relatively) on the horizon. L-Space are a Scottish Electronic Dream Pop band from Glasgow who are in the midst of promoting their debut album Kipple Arcadia. Already getting great reviews, the album is now available via Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes and as a download, CD or Vinyl.

They write songs about a better future. Dreamy guitar and fuzzy bass mingle with dramatic synths and ethereal vocals over complex beats to create unique pop soundscapes. They are signed to the innovative label Last Night from Glasgow and released their debut single with the label on 02/03/2018 with an album following in September. SUNEATERS was premiered by Vic Galloway on BBC Radio Scotland on 12/02/2018 and Louder Than War premiered the video the same week.

I mentioned their getting good reviews and positive word-of-mouth – here’s a sample:

“There are many exceptional electronic bands around at the moment, but few have the inherent style and vision of L-space. There is a winning understatement and languor to their music which allows your head to swim with ideas as well as sounds.” Scots Whay Hae!

“Stylistically, there is a lot going on in here, more than is first apparent to the ear. Arch synths, sinister guitar fuzz, dark vocal distortions – so many textures and hues. So many sonic pictures that flow in and out and across each other. There is a myriad of sounds, a plethora of gear changes like ever changing plot-lines, to keep the listener riveted.” Fresh On The Net

“Their idiosyncratic electronic dream pop mixes ghostly vocals with big synthy sounds to create raw, personal songs about the future. Influenced by the likes of Mogwai, Radiohead and Sigur Rós, L-space put together speculative tunes that are worth a closer listen.” The List

“L-Space are one of the most exciting bands in Glasgow” ​Rave Child

Don’t know what the plans are – I suspect they will be gigging around Europe pretty solidly this Spring and Summer. U.S. visits, there’s no firm word yet – but they are definitely a band to keep an eye on.

In the meantime, here’s a sample of what they’ve been up to just earlier today, and hopes of more to come – very soon. Visit their site and say hi.

Play loud.
