At the risk of repeating myself, I’m running way late with this one.
Oliver Stays are a four piece from Glasgow – or close enough at least. Their faces might be familiar to some, with band members having previously been in Drive-By Argument, Atlas Skye and Jocasta Sleeps.
Formed in November of last year, there’s not a lot to listen to yet but what there is sounds promising. Interestingly the three songs featured on the band’s MySpace were put together over the Internet, with band members mailing each other tracks and adding their own bits until they were fully formed. One of their demos – Temperament – is available for listening to down at the bottom.
No one in the band is actually called Oliver Stays either.
The band are heading out to play their first live dates at the end of month. Firstly supporting Doll And The Kicks at:
21 Feb Aberdeen Tunnels
24 Feb Dundee Doghouse
25 Feb Edinburgh Cabaret Voltaire
