 Landscapes & Landslides, a new Emo Rock four-piece band based in Kilmarnock, Scotland are ready to introduce themselves with their debut self-titled, self-produced release.

The band (Christopher Williams – Guitar / Lead Vocals, Kyle Roberts – Guitar, Murray Baxter – Bass / Vocals and Asier Lopez – Drums) describe themselves as Midwest (Coast Of Scotland) Emo, and feature members from previous bands, Twin Heart, DreamKids and Frog Fountain.

Taking musical influences from the likes of American Football, Movements and Microwave, Landscapes & Landslides have created a fresh take on Midwest Emo, drifting between aggressive guitars and rhythms and poignant melodies and vocals.

The opening track Maybe One Day encapsulates this approach with a frantic introduction followed by softer melodic guitars and singalong gang vocals. Track two, Twenty Twelve, offers a slightly different take, leaning towards the pop/punk side of the fence, following a traditional song-writing structure, and showcasing dual vocals throughout. The final track Leaves, tells a story of the working-class daily commute and the struggles of life, while musically incorporating early 00s inspired Emo Rock with Scottish-influenced bittersweet stylistics throughout. 

Landscapes & Landslides are set to play their first live performance of 2024 on Friday 24th May at Venue 38, Ayr, as part of Sun Turtle Records’ Summer Showcase, supporting Ayrshire’s Day Drunk

Landscapes & Landslides is self-released digitally and physically on Friday 19th April 2024
