Acrylic Release New Single “Money From Home”
via Scottish Fiction
Following the release of the acclaimed I’ve Got Too Many Friends, Acrylic
Money From Home is a break up song that takes the listener on an emotive journey. “The first verse centres around a peaceful moment,” Andreas elaborates, “sleeping beside someone during a snowstorm and that feeling that the room becomes 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 middle 8 represent acceptance and farewell”. Oozing with atmosphere and celestial soundscapes, Acrylic‘s staple blend of sweeping guitars and tranquil harmonies are at the forefront. Frontman Andreas Christodoulidis’ impassioned baritone floats over the twinkling musicality, whilst also reflecting the song’s poetic lyricism effortlessly.
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. Since then, the band have gone from strength to strength, receiving critical acclaim for their last EP All I Am, which was released via Scottish Fiction, from the likes of Tenement TV, The Herald, and The Skinny to name but a few. They have also received support from BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary, BBC Scotland’s Vic Galloway and Nicola Meighan, as well as Amazing Radio’s Charlie Ashcroft and Jim Gellatly. Regulars on the Scottish live circuit, they have previously sold out Glasgow’s prestigious King Tut’s and have supported the likes of The View, Demob Happy, Palace, The Ninth Wave and Man of Moon.
Money From Home is released digitally on 22nd February 2019 via Scottish Fiction Records.
