Magpie Blue embarks on her first headline tour this November.
Scottish Singer Songwriter and lyricist, Magpie Blue released her debut single ‘Just In Time’ on June 14th via Seahorse Music.
The track was produced in Edinburgh by Rod Jones of Idlewild and features drummer Michael Reid of Man of Moon and guitarist Louise McCraw of Goodnight Louisa.
“Lyrically, Magpie Blue delves into introspective yet sharply to-the-point subject matters from heartbreak to anxiety, investing her words with a raw truth. You get the sense listening to this number of an old head resting on young shoulders, of someone who has the emotional intelligence to channel real feeling into their art.
Having already gained comparisons at this early stage of her career to the likes of PJ Harvey and Anna Calvi, her Jeff Buckley-esque vocals inflect this number with a sense of raw melancholy. A husky, brooding start sets the track off on a low key, before her band, featuring the likes of drummer Michael Reid of Man of Moon and guitarist Louise McCraw of Goodnight Louisa, build proceedings to a mighty crescendo, subtle electronics adding an unexpected layer of depth. Production duties are confidently overseen by Idlewild’s Rod Jones, who brings his band’s keen ear for melodics to ensure this track remains firmly lodged in the ears after it’s finished.” – Bitter Sweet Symphonies
The artist uses her distinctive voice to illustrate her intriguing yet relatable lyrics, depicting heartbreak and the brutally honest inner thoughts of an anxious mind.
