Glasgow is one of the wettest, dampest, rainiest cities in the UK.
It's perhaps apt, then, that the city has such a rich lineage of summery, uplifting, sunshine-drenched pop music.
From BMX Bandits to Teenage Fanclub, The Pastels to Cosmic Rough Riders, Glasgow specialises in finely poised guitar pop.
The Starry Skies are one of the finest of the current crop, with new album 'Be Kind' arriving on October 12th.
The title song is a real jewel, a kind of off piste power pop gem delivered with an earnest feel.
The band's Warren McIntyre explains: “There are not enough people being kind to each other… It’s really clichéd but it’s nice to be nice. I decided I wanted to be more straightforward lyrically and send a simple message about spending the rest of my time on this planet being as kind as I can as much as I can.”
