Scottish DIY Newcomers

There's not much in Glenrothes.

A shopping centre, a pretty big car park and a lot of concrete. A 'New Town' built in the 60s, the area has become better known for producing youthful vandalism and retro indie poppers Sergeant.

Now for Tango In The Attic. A bunch of small town guys eager to escape, their indie pop takes its cue from Vampire Weekend and Foals. Think odd rhythms, offbeat harmonies and you'd be close.

Touring across the UK last year the band began catching people's attention. Retreating to Glenrothes, Tango In The Attic took the brave decision to release their debut album on their own label.

Maintaining control, they neatly avoided the label politics which dogged fellow Glenrothes act Sergeant. Released last week, 'Bank Place Locomotive Society' is a chirpy salute to escapism with an easy to dance to beat.

Always ones to support new talent, ClashMusic have grabbed a preview of the new album. A highlight of 'Bank Place Locomotive Society' new track 'Off To...' is available now as a download for free, nada, nothing.
