UK Artist of the Week, Between Mockingbirds

Between Mockingbirds are a Scottish three-piece from East Kilbride (that’s just outside Glasgow, for those who don’t know). Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 6 months, you may have noticed that over the pond Scotland very nearly packed its bags, took the kids, and split the record collection that it had accumulated with the UK in half. They very nearly gained independence.

Riding the wave of the national come down felt by Scotland’s “No” vote, Between Mockingbirds decided to put their feelings into their latest track, “Do You?” The lyrics are told from the POV of a “Yes” voter, and captures the disappointment felt by those who came so close to the change they’d been campaigning for.

The band have quite the smorgasbord of influences, and it will come as no surprise that Queens Of The Stone Age make the cut. This is ’90s college rock through and through, but with a mean streak.

Between Mockingbirds have also released a video alongside the track and it’s… well, let’s say there is a LOT of bad behaviour depicted, mainly of the powdered variety. We don’t know if the guys are pro or anti-drug, but it doesn’t look like they’re having a completely terrible time. We’ll let you make your minds up.

You can download Between Mockingbird’s single, “Do You?” free on their official website.
