To mark the news, the rising Glaswegian band have shared videos for two recent tracks ‘About Love’ and ‘COBRA’, both of which will feature on the forthcoming album.

‘Ignore This’ has been billed as an album that reflects on the band’s newfound strength in not trying to fit in within the music industry, with guitarist and lead composer Blair Crichton saying:

“As a band, we’ve experienced an awful lot of being ignored. 

“We really don’t like that. So we set about making a debut LP so good that people had to pay attention. It’s a record that literally dares people to ‘Ignore This…’”

Have a watch of the videos for ‘About Love’ and ‘COBRA’ below.

The forthcoming 16-track album was written, recorded and produced entirely by Blair and his bandmates Anna Shields (vocals), Liam Adams (bass) and Euan Lyons (drums), and as Anna has further added:

“It’s about making music that appeals to people like us.

“A lot of things have changed for us over the last few years, but it’s arguably even more powerful seeing how we’ve stayed the same. 

“That’s solidified my understanding of who our fans are: people who like good music, who aren’t in too much of a hurry to pigeonhole bands into categories, who don’t give a fuck about following trends. 

“When I look into the crowd at our shows, I see people who remind me of myself as a teenager. Those are the people this music is for: the misfits who struggle to fit in anywhere else…”
