Three of the Scotland’s most exciting and promising young bands will showcase their talents at The Windsor Hotel in Kirkcaldy.

Static Union, The Decrees and Between The Lines will play in the Lang Toun on Friday, February 9 on a bill put together by Kirkcaldy promoters Filthy at Fifty.

Headliners Static Union formed in Glasgow and have been making waves on the music scene over the past 12 months.

The indie rock four-piece, all aged between 18-20, formed at school in 2014 and their melodic jangly guitar sound has been compared to the likes of Interpol, The Cure, New Order, U2 and Arctic Monkeys amongst others.

In the last year, they have received extensive radio play, have been picked for BBC Introducing.

Brian Gilmour from Filthy at Fifty said: “We have very high hopes for Static Union. Their storming debut single Turn Out The Lights, released in January 2017, caught our attention with it’s blast of driving guitar pop.

“It has all the markings of a real indie anthem.”

The band has already built up a loyal following having gigged at some of Glasgow’s prestigious intimate venues, including a headline show at the infamous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh.

More recently they were invited to perform at The Royal Albert Hall in London as part of the Music For Youth Proms 2017.

Joining them are two Fife bands, both hailing from Dunfermline.

The Decrees are “no-holds barred” rock ‘n’ roll band who possess the high-octane energy of punk, whilst Between The Lines, who formed whilst still attending Queen Anne High School, recently played a headline show at PJ Molloys in their home town.

Advance tickets costing just £6 are available from the venue or online via www.ticketsource.co.uk. Doors are at 8pm.
