On hearing Latonic’s blend of rock pop, Unpeeled Magazine wrote “Jealous? Give it up, course we are & so are you”. After storming the Scottish music scene and securing an army of fans the rock quintet will release Turn on the Sky on September 25th with a debut album following later this year. London venues are booking fast and they continue to unleash their sound on the UK aiming to conquer its four corners and everything in between.

Formed in 2002 and brought together from several paths and fated coincidences, Latonic draw influences from Queen, The Who, Def Leppard, Manic Street preachers and The Smashing Pumpkins. Fronted by Grant Nicol “an excellent front man – nonchalant one moment but passionate the next,” (Sunday Mail Magazine) and with a PHD student and former Huddersfield Town youth footballer amongst their line up, their backgrounds may seem diverse but it is their shared passion for making great rock music and hunger for success that binds them together.

Turn on the Sky is a stomping tune that builds in momentum, harnessing the power of bouncing basslines, Wah pedals, hard-hitting drums and heavenly harmonies to maximum musical effect. Produced by Chris Gordon (who has worked with El Presidente and Snow Patrol) it has already become a favourite amongst their loyal fans. The single also boasts a remix by Relentless Records signing Union of Knives and riff-tastic anthem Don’t Say.

“This suggests a stompingly grand future. Great guitar driven pop/rock… Good stuff and I can¹t wait for the album” Classic Rock Society
