ACRYLIC release their new single ‘Money From Home’ tomorrow 22nd February 2019 via Scottish Fiction, today we unveil the premiere. Singer Andreas grapples with a brooding intensity that watches in slow motion as his world falls apart, it possesses a wistful melancholia that places them in the same orbit as fellow Scots The Twilight Sad , underpinned by a brooding post punk undercurrent that recalls early Mogwai or Interpol. Listen below.
Frontman Andreas Christodoulidis says “Money From Home is essentially a song about a break up. It can be separated into three sections; the first verse centres around a peaceful moment, sleeping beside someone during a snowstorm, and that feeling that the room and the bed become the entire world for a night. The second verse explores the onset of tiredness and the acknowledgement that you’re drifting apart gradually. The chorus and “money from home” middle 8 represent acceptance and farewell.”
ACRYLIC formed in 2014 when Andreas, Ross Patrizio (guitar/ vocals), Jack Lyall (guitar), Lewis Doig (bass/ vocals/synth) and Ruairidh Smith (drums) moved to Glasgow for university. Regulars on the Scottish live circuit, they have previously sold out Glasgow’s prestigious King Tuts and have supported likes of The View, Demob Happy, Palace and The Ninth Wave.
