SOFT RIOT is JJD; a former Vancouverite now residing in Glasgow. His sound is an amalgamation of synthesiser-based film soundtracks, romantic italo-style flourishes, throbbing arpeggiations and angular, psychedelic synth-pop. With three full-length albums and a clutch of EPs and cassettes released, he’s toured Europe, the UK, Canada and America numerous times. With JJD now calling Glasgow his home, he will begin work on his next full-length album, to be released on Possession Records.
hausfrau is the alter-ego of Glasgow-based artist and musician Claudia Nova. Taking cues from electronic music pioneers like Throbbing Gristle, Soft Cell and Suicide, the music of Hausfrau explores and exploits the stark, beating heart of the dark dance. Nova has followed up her 2014 album ‘Night Tides’ with the new “Trivial Pursuits” EP on Possession Records.
