With an explosive debut album as well as countless gigs, festivals and support slots under their belts, St Deluxe have bottled and distilled their sound ready to unleash it on the world. Think Dinosaur Jr, My Bloody Valentine, Teenage Fanclub and a whole host of other noise-niks updated for 2010. Ear-bleedingly loud and ready for SXSW – get them while they’re hot!

St Deluxe make Glaswegian fuzz-pop with beautiful noise. Fans already include Alan McGee (“St. Deluxe are brilliant, a Scottish Nirvana for the 21st Century”), Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake (“Scotland’s Uber noise/pop merchants. I love ‘em!”) and Mogwai’s Stuart Braithwaite (“Great guitar pop. They have a fine collection of guitar pedals and are not afraid to use them!”) and Tim Burgess of the Charlatans “I have played New Wave Stars on repeat constantly, great lyrics great sound kinda mixes up Bleach era Nirvana, Tom Verlaine and Bandwagonesque period Teenage Fanclub…Pushes all the buttons, MONOCHROME ROCK N ROLL” .

Their self-titled UK debut, released on February 9th through Poppydisc, showcases 11 songs wrapped in dirty guitars, fuzz bass and off-kilter drums. Influenced by noise-oriented indie-rock troublemakers like Sonic Youth, MBV and Jesus and Mary Chain as well as the scuzz-pop of Pavement, Sebadoh and Dinosaur Jr, the visceral rock thrills are perfectly balanced by addictive melodies.

‘St Deluxe’ was recently released through Star Sign records in Japan to great acclaim and with distribution secured throughout Germany, subsequent tours in both countries are hotly anticipated.

Further recordings feature guest producers like Calvin Johnson of K Records/Beat Happening and Stuart Braithwaite and the band have a healthy live reputation thanks to blistering shows across the UK, the recent enthusiastically received German tour and support slots with underground heroes Mudhoney, the Vaselines and Sonic Boom (Spectrum/Spacemen 3).
