Over 14's only, under 18's should be accompanied by an adult over 18 years

In February 2020 astrid released the first single from their Storm Sessions ep. It was an acoustic re-working of one of their popular early singles Distance.
 
A cover of Jeff Bridges’ Falling & Flying from the Movie Crazy Heart came next. It charted at number 20 in the Scottish Singles Chart a few months before the Chart itself was abandoned by the Official Chart Company. 
 
Spring 2020 should have seen Stornoway's finest rolling round the UK for a couple of weeks bringing their acoustic ep to life. Yet we've all lived the story of what came next instead. Happily, in 2022 astrid return for a shorter version of the tour and will give an acoustic airing to the songs from their 5 studio records and play the Storm Sessions EP in full. 
 
Dual songwriters and vocalists Willie Campbell and Charlie Clark have retained the same buoyant youthful energy that made astrid such an endearing live band in the late 90s. As teenagers they found their music being Simon Mayo’s single of the week on Radio 1 and soundtracking episodes of a youthful Jamie Oliver’s breakthrough TV show: The Naked Chef.
 
The storm sessions EP is the same irresistible energy, melodies and soulful harmonies but with double acoustic guitars, fiddle and a hint of squeeze box. 
 
"Nifty choruses and breezy harmonies stomping along like a fortuitous tangle between Chicory Tip and The La's". Q Magazine
 
“Impossibly beautiful power pop, laden with dizzying harmonies so airy and angelic it sounds like they might dissolve if you listen too hard" N.M.E

Ewan’s burgeoning reputation is of a musician whose experience matches his many miles travelled. Broadening his horizons as a solo performer in his own right for the first time Ewan Macfarlane's debut album Always Everlong sees the former Apollo440 and The Grim Northern Social frontman, tell tales of tension with pledges of eternal love.  As a writer he bares his soul from pen to paper wearing heart on sleeve and singing like his life depended on it. His career in music has meandered like a long flowing river that knows no boundaries.  The debut album Always Everlong is truly a celebration of love and rock'n'roll.  After all, what else really matters?
 
The album will be taken to the hallowed road, allowing us all to congregate as one for the love of music once more. The stops may be fleeting but for Ewan MacFarlane, his musical destiny is Always Everlong
