“...visceral pop-edged indie...” - Clash
Following the release of the acclaimed I’ve Got Too Many Friends, ACRYLIC now release their follow up single Money From Home, out now via Scottish Fiction.
Money From Home is a break up song that takes the listener on an emotive journey. “The first verse centres around a peaceful moment,” Frontman Andreas Chrsitodoulidis elaborates, “sleeping beside someone during a snowstorm and that feeling that the room becomes the entire world for a night. The second verse explores the onset of tiredness and the acknowledgement that you’re drifting apart gradually. The chorus and middle 8 represent acceptance and farewell”. Oozing with atmosphere and celestial soundscapes, ACRYLIC’s staple blend of sweeping guitars and tranquil harmonies are at the forefront. Andreas’ impassioned baritone floats over the twinkling musicality, whilst also reflecting the song’s poetic lyricism effortlessly.
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 from the likes of Clash Magazine, Tenement TV, With Guitars 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 Tuts and have supported likes of The View, Demob Happy, Palace and The Ninth Wave.
Money From Home is out now via Scottish Fiction.
