Formed during the winter of 1998, the 3-piece began writing their sun-drenched and healing pop music, releasing 3 albums between 1998 and 2002 filled with radio friendly tracks, attracting deserved attention alongside national and international airtime.
In 2003 the band were awarded a coveted Scottish Arts Council Grant to record and release 2005’s Silver Brainwaves album. The band’s fourth studio effort is unashamedly so far removed from the current heartbeat of British music it feels like a timeless classic. Drifting top lines and fragile vocals reminiscent of Brian Wilson, backed with faraway harmonies, it is hard to believe this music was born in Edinburgh and not California in the mid 60’s.
This album is a must for any music aficionado who wrongly believes they have heard everything original. Emporium have re-written the rule book, or perhaps they never read it at all. A must listen.
