Following the release of their last single, 2016’s Atomic Blonde, Edinburgh five-piece Rebel Westerns are back with another uplifting indie-pop track Envy, out now via Get Strange

Propelled by driving beats and the band’s trademark synth-filled melodies, Envy is another slice of twinkling indie-pop from the Rebel Westerns. Reminiscent of the likes of MGMT, the track reflects on feelings of anxiety and self doubt which are juxtaposed with its euphoric, uptempo musical layers. As Dominic Thomson’s impassioned vocals flow alongside energy-fuelled catchy hooks, Rebel Westerns prove yet again their knack for creating truly infectious, and utterly danceable, anthems. 

Formed by four school friends Dominic Thomson (vocals, guitar), Callum Munro (bass), Glen Gordon (keyboard) and Daniel Garvie (drums), the band have recently expanded their line-up with the addition of John Cargill (guitar) adding an extra layer to an already impressive sound. Rebel Westerns have received airplay from BBC Radio 2 and Amazing Radio, as well as acclaim from the likes of Clash, EQ Music and Gigslutz, and with packed out gigs at Glasgow’s King Tuts and Edinburgh Fringe Festival under their belts, Rebel Westerns look set to take 2017 by storm with their cascading, vibrant sound. 

Envy by Rebel Westerns is out now via Get Strange.
