AUGUST 1ST

SERGEANT




Heralding from Glenrothes, Scotland, Sergeant’s sound is very much immersed in the jingle jangle guitar licks which made Liverpool legends the La’s rise to prominence in the late 80’s. Nick Mercer’s piercing vocal is reminiscent of Lee Mavers’ spine tingling delivery, whereas Scott Duncan’s guitar wizardry is very much a nod towards the striking indie-pop fret work of the Smiths’ visionary veteran Johnny Marr.

First release ‘K’ok’ has already been praised by NME as ‘the most perfect pop anthem we can imagine being penned’. Sergeant are currently holed up with John Leckie - the legendary producer behind Radiohead’s ‘The Bends’, the Stone Roses’ eponymous debut and The Verve’s ‘A Storm In Heaven’ - recording their as yet untitled debut which is penned in for a September release on Mercury Records.

Alan McGee has been quick to herald the band as the saviours of Scottish Music in his Guardian blog, while Emily Eavis personally asked the unsigned band to play Glastonbury in 2007, so taken aback was she by their refreshing material.

In December the lads saw the New Year in with style selling out the 1500 capacity Rothes Hall in Glenrothes, still without having had a single released. Expect a flurry of national excitement very soon, but for the time being ‘K’OK’ and the infectious ‘Time Is Now’ should be enough to whet your appetite.
