Freakwave, Caitlin Buchanan
SATURDAY 18TH AUGUST 2018
Josephine Sillars + The Manic Pixie Dreams are a band based in Glasgow who write politically infused pop music. They have performed extensively across Scotland as well as in Europe and internationally, including local festivals such as XpoNorth, Celtic Connections and Kelburn Garden Party. Following the release of their single 'Down', they completed their first UK tour in November 2017, and in 2018 they were selected to represent the UK as part of EXCITE Music.
Previously performing under the moniker “Five Cousins”, Freakwave built up a considerable following in Glasgow, this much was made clear when their maiden display as Freakwave at Celtic Connections sold out in January. Prepare to be whisked away by some intoxicating vocal performances, which, backed by some woozy instrumentals.
Caitlin Buchanan, who describes her music as a cross between Angel Olsen, Laura Marling and Kate Bush. Wielding a classical guitar and a hypnotically beautiful voice. Caitlin tends to turn heads with her carefully placed lyrics that take you through her story.
