UK Artist of the Week: The Deportees

Once again those pesky Scots have produced another musical gem. This time it’s new finds The Deportees who take our Artist of The Week crown.

The band’s latest single “I Lost Her To The Sea” is a catchy piece of melodic folk from the offset and throughout. Hints of Mumford & Sons are certainly there via the band’s feel-good harmonies, but there’s also elements of Idlewild and The Waterboys for those who appreciate that age-old Scottish twang. This is the second single to be released from The Deportees’ debut album The Birth of Industry, out this Friday.

The band formed in rural Aberdeenshire in 2010 after having played in separate bands previously. The five-piece take influence from their Celtic roots as well as Americana and folk-rock, however we feel it’s their ability to write highly addictive melodies and flawless four-part harmonies that will set them apart. If you’re a fan of upbeat, catchy folk, then these guys are certainly for you.

The Birth of Industry is in stores 3rd November 2017.
