Glasgow’s Acrylic prepare to kick start 2019 with the release of their infectious new single I’ve Got Too Many Friends, out now and premiered via Clash with early features on Tenement TV, Netsounds, and BBC Rapal amongst others.
The single is a soaring slice of indie rock from the offset, filled with jangling hooks, sweeping guitars and effortless harmonies throughout. Frontman Andreas Christodoulidis’ rich baritone vocal feel instantly reminiscent of the likes of The National’s Matt Berninger, giving the track an undeniably defiant and endearing sound.
Acrylic formed in 2014 when Andreas, Ross Patrizio (guitar/vocals), Jack Lyall (guitar), Lewis Doig (bass/vocals/synth) and Ruairidh Smith (drums) moved to Glasgow for university. Since then, the band have gone from strength to strength, receiving critical acclaim for their last EP All I Am, which was released via Scottish Fiction, from the likes of Tenement TV, The Herald, and The Skinny to name but a few. They have also received support from BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary, BBC Scotland’s Vic Galloway and Nicola Meighan, as well as Amazing Radio’s Charlie Ashcroft and Jim Gellatly. Regulars on the Scottish live circuit, they have previously sold out Glasgow’s prestigious King Tut’s and have supported the likes of The View, Demob Happy, Palace and The Ninth Wave.
