Four-piece, GANGS, have come to the fore with the release of their official single, “Thieves”, due for release on Friday, July 22, on Smooth Action Records. The band came together in tough town of all tough towns, Glasgow, featuring Steven Young (vocals, guitar), Stevie McLaren (guitar), Marc MacCallum (bass, vocals) and Stephen Forbes (drums).


“Thieves” opens with driving, immediate and punky drums and bass. The guitars then kick in, all conspiring, with the vocals, to create a moody, maybe slightly intimidating, soundscape. Wayward, slightly dissonant and wailing solos combine with melody and a good sense of dynamics in shifting time signatures.


The video, itself, is a largely band performance visual. There is an interesting, fuzzy element to the clips, making it very retro looking. It is like looking at a music video from the, say, late Seventies or early Eighties. This, in turn, suits the band to the ground in the sound they are striving to achieve and make their own.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
