"Under the Sun" by Randolph's Leap
Scottish indie pop band Randolph's Leap is a favorite around here. The Glasgow outfit offers melodic, often upbeat pop with a fully empowered rhythm section and a welcome touch of brass (we're talking trumpet and trombone, not attitude) and strings. The songs are literate, witty, and vary from fun romps to more somber affairs. Their new single, the elegant "Under The Sun", trods the reflective path. "Under the Sun" is available as a digital download on Bandcamp. It also serves as our first taste of Cowardly Deeds, the band's second album, which will be out via Olive Grove Records on May 20.
Randolph's Leap, when all together, are Adam Ross (guitar/vocals), Adam Florence (drums), Vicki Cole (bass), Andrew MacLellan (guitar), Heather Fox (violin), Pete MacDonald (keyboards), Ali Hendry (trumpet), and Fraser Gibson (trombone).
