Fresh from being nominated as BBC Introducing Scottish Act of the Year, Edinburgh five-piece band rEDOLENT have today announced the release of their anticipated debut album, ‘dinny greet’, set to be released on 17th May via the burgeoning Scottish label and artist house Post Electric (home to Hamish Hawk, Humour, Iona Zajac & Voka Gentle). Alongside the news, they’ve shared a new single – the title track from the LP, which means ‘don’t cry’ in Scots.

Premiered by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music and undoubtedly one of the strongest tracks the band have released to date,

Speaking about the meaning behind the song, frontman Robin Herbert explains, “It’s about living with someone and sharing their mood. Trying to keep it positive, to tackle life together. It’s little snapshots of things I’ve heard or said; me and Alice trying to cheer each other up in the depths of lockdown depression. Either with some daft fantasy: “We’ll go out in new
clothes every night”, “neither of your parents will ever die”. Or by just reminding each other that it’s not so bad with the simple things: “The sun’s between the blinds”, “You’re off tomorrow”. It’s a hopeful prod of encouragement to try and be happy with what you have.

Because it’s often so much more than you think.”
