'WHERE: Glasgow WHO: Kieran Brown (vocals), Aidan Curran (guitar), Callum McCulloch (guitar), Jamie Cowan (bass), Ross Cowan (drums) The band are destined for the top Robyn Hay FOR FANS OF: Catfish And The Bottlemen, The Sherlocks, Bastille JIM SAYS: To say Flying By Mirrors were going through a transition the first time I saw them is an understatement. Lewis Capaldi dons Liam Gallagher Glastonbury look in hilarious backstage footage On the day of the gig at Nice N Sleazy in Glasgow in March 2016 they announced that their singer Katie had left the band. Somehow, they still managed to pull it together with a talented singer called Eleanor stepping in at the last minute. \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t It would have been all to easy for them to pull out, but I’m thankful they didn’t. My daughter Jasmine was involved in promoting the gig as part of her college course! Kieran Brown soon stepped in as the permanent vocalist and the band have continued to impress. Aidan told me: “After auditioning many singers we found that Kieran had the voice and more importantly the personality that we wanted in the band.” Originally formed by school friends Aidan and Callum in Rutherglen near Glasgow, Jamie soon came on board with his brother Ross later replacing the original bass player. Flying By Mirrors have released 5 singles now with the current line-up, first debuting with the impressive indie pop of Kalopsia in 2016. Last year’s Fame & Fortune saw them dip their toes into slightly heavier territory with shades of The Cult and later Stone Roses. Recent release Take Me Home builds into another rocker, while retaining an indie edge. Ross said: “Without being arrogant we got better as we went on and started to gel as one. The guys have come a long way Robyn Hay “With our ever-changing music tastes we are constantly inspired by new music that we hear. That might cause us to write a less heavy song or more of a dancey one.” They’ve actually done that with their up-coming single Live In The Moment. They’ve given me a sneak preview of the rough mix, and I reckon they’ve nailed it. Their poppiest track yet, it takes them to a different level. A cracking singalong number full of melody with jangly guitars complimenting the driving rhythm. It has the marks of a future classic. Aidan told me: “It’s a song we have had in our live set for a while but haven’t really gotten around to recording it until now. Their newest music sounds superb Robyn Hay “The song itself is about being spontaneous and not really doing the norm. Just allowing yourself to take the time to appreciate each moment and everything around it.” The lads played a headline show at King Tut’s in Glasgow on Friday. At a previous gig at the legendary venue they bumped into Scots superstar Paolo Nutini in the bar. Ross told me: “Aidan just went up and started a conversation with him, and then he chatted to us all for a bit. “He was a lovely guy and ended up buying a good few tickets off us for the show that night.” No pressure there then! Jamie added: “We plan to keep on recording and writing new material as well as playing more live shows. We are a really live band and we all love playing live.” \t \t\t \t\t \t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t RELATED STORIES \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tAS LEW WERE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tLewis Capaldi poses with Liam Gallagher at Glastonbury after trolling Noel\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFEST REQUEST\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFans call for TRNSMT to 'announce Paolo Nutini' after Jess Glynne pulls out\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tLEW'S GLASTO DEBUT\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tLewis Capaldi stuns Glastonbury fans by showing up for surprise gig\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tSTAR AXES SCOTS GIG\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tJess Glynne pulls out of Sunday TRNSMT Festival performance in Glasgow\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tRADIO GA GA\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tScottish Sun radio is booming thanks to huge jump in loyal band of listeners\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tESPECIALLY FOR YOU\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tKylie Minogue to 'duet with Jason Donovan at Glastonbury festival'\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tSURPRISE GUEST\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tPink makes shock appearance at The Garage in Glasgow to watch gig\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tIBROX LOYLE\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tMercury Prize contender Loyle Carner says his biggest influence was his Rangers-mad grandad\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tTHE GOLDEN TICKET\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tThe lowdown on Glastonbury 2020 and how to get tickets\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tFAMILY FESTIVAL\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\tAll about Glastonbury's Worthy Farm and organisers Michael and Emily Eavis\t\t\t \t\t\t \t \t \t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t \t \t \t \t MORE: www.facebook.com/FlyingByMirrors Jim presents a weekly showcase of New Music on Amazing Radio, Sundays 2-4pm. www.amazingradio.com  www.jimgellatly.com \t\t \t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t \t\t\t\t \t\t We pay for your stories and videos!
