Ralph's favourite video this week is Scarlett by Aberdeen band The Cliftons.
The Cliftons have supported luminaries such as The Bluetones and Man Made plus headlined at venues such as The Lemon Tree. The Cliftons are also set to release their follow up EP on January 21st with a hometown show in Tunnels.
The focus of this week's feature articles on Ralph's Life is firmly on the burgeoning supply of quality Indie music in Scotland currently. With Sunday's Indie Show on Radio KC containing over a third of the tracks played from Scottish based bands and artists, it seems there's a bit of a tidal wave about to swamp the rest of the UK.
One case in point is young (they're so young they cite Catfish & The Bottlemen as an influence) Wishaw band LAFleur. They're only a couple of years into their musical journey together but are rapidly managing to attract the right kind of attention.
Hailing from Newcastle, VITO are four young men with their sights firmly set on achieving greater notoriety than just gigging around their local stomping ground in the North East.
They offer - "a 'no-frills' ethos, focusing on raw, dynamic performances" and "have a flair for compelling lyrics to accompany their upbeat riffs, creating poignant messages through tracks that pack a punch."
Likened to QOTSA, Fat White Family and Grinderman they've had a very successful 2016, including performances at several festivals including Reading & Leeds and Sound City in Liverpool. The single In Sicily is released by Fighting Caravans on Christmas Day.
It's nearly a year since Ralph played the lead track Miami from the eponymous debut EP by Bradford's dark and mysterious electro-pop outfit They Called Him Zoneon his Radio KC Indie Show.
OK, OK, they're not that mysterious as I can tell you the band are - Mik Davies on Vocals, Drone and Production, Steve Maloney on Vocals, Guitar and Production plus John Bradford on Keys and percussion when playing live.
The Cliftons are a Scottish Alt-Rock band formed in 2013 in Aberdeen and managed by Kid A Music. They are: James Will on Lead Vocals & Rhythm Guitar, Andrew Joseph on Lead Guitar, Keir Smith on Bass Guitar) & Bilal Benzahia Drums, Percussion and Backing Vocals).
Releasing their self titled debut EP in the summer of 2015, it proved a hit with their fan base and songs such as Methamphetamine becoming fond fan favourites, no wonder it currently features in Ralph's Top 10 as played on Radio KC.
"With meaningful, honest and true heartfelt lyrics, thumping drums, deep bass lines & rough, dirty lead guitar, The Cliftons are making their mark on the Scottish music scene and are a band to watch out for."
