Hometown: Glasgow

Lineup: Julie Eisenstein (vocals/guitar), Suse Bear (bass), Michael ‘Beast’ O’Hara (drums)

Overview: A three piece guitar pop band formed in 2012, Tuff Love sound like they’ve been beamed in directly from 1994, the year Britpop and Grunge locked horns to win over mass teen appeal. Although this group are from Glasgow and have recently been signed to The Pictish Trail’s home-grown Lost Map label, there is something distinctly Americana about their sound. Fuzz-toned riffing – check. Sun-kissed harmonies – check. Classic slacker aura – check. Looks like summer’s arrived early.

The buzz: “glorious summery surf pop” – Daily Record, “a class of their own” – The Scotsman

Similar Artists: The Breeders, Elastica, Pixies

Look out for: Junk EP is out 5 May
