The Scottish indie scene is still buzzing
The Scottish music scene proves that it's still buzzing as new boys Bricolage take centre stage. They're from Glasgow and they play irritatingly catchy, off-kilter indie pop, is it any wonder that they have met with the approval of fellow Glaswegian art rockers, Franz Ferdinand, whose vocalist/guitarist Alex Kapranos has described them as being 'like Postcard-era Orange Juice with a real dark, twisty edge'? Bricolage return with a re-release of their debut single 'Flowers of Deceit', which first appeared in March as a double A-side with the track 'Footsteps'.
Franz Ferdinand are also the obvious comparison that will be made as soon as 'Flowers of Deceit' opens, with its brash indie guitars and slightly unstable art-rock vocals, yet there is, perhaps, a much more reckless sound to this single compared to the more militant precision of the mighty Franz Ferdinand. Its dated sound, infectious melodies, bittersweet sentiments and skiffle beats are hard to ignore, and won't fail to leave your foot tapping and hips shaking.
