Aerials Up Release New Single "Superglue" Out February 14th
Sessions Recorded For Jo Wiley (BBC Radio 2), Vic Galloway (BBC3) and BBC Radio Scotland
Winners: Tartan Clef 'Emerging Talent Award'
Aerials Up are a mind blowing seven-piece band from Glasgow, Scotland who formed in late 2009.
After the release of their debut single "Stay Awake" in the summer of 2010, and a number of live tours and well received festival appearances, including a triumphant headline slot on the BBC Introducing stage at T In The Park, Aerials Up ended 2010 by scooping the Emerging Talent Award at the Scottish music industry's biggest black tie event - The Tartan Clef Awards (previous winners of that award include Snow Patrol and Paolo Nutini).

They have also become a firm favorite with some of the biggest stars around, particularly Snow Patrol front man Gary Lightbody, who invited them to play at the bands huge Bellahouston Park show last summer in front of 22,000 people.
Another high profile fan is multi-million selling chart star Paolo Nutini, who regularly comes to Aerials Up gigs to watch the band and hang out. Nutini's love of the band also saw him invite them to support him on several occasions across 2010, including a performance at London's Royal Albert Hall, and a recent BBC 2 In Concert performance recording with Jo Whiley in Paisley.
Aerials Up have also gained significant support from the BBC; performing a live session for Scotland's premier taste-maker Vic Galloway, BBC3 coverage of their T In The Park performance, and a New Year's Eve session for Jo Whiley on BBC2.
The band start 2011 with the release of their second single "Superglue". Filled with luscious strings and driven along on the most uplifting of melodies, "Superglue" further highlights Aerials Up as Scotland's brightest new music movement.
"Kemy is one of Scotland's finest young songwriters, and has a way with a chorus I am covetous of" - Gary Lightbody, Snow Patrol
"lush orchestral string arrangements and a powerful folk-rock wall of sound" - The New Scotsman - Single Of The Month
"Guitars, violin, choirs, cleverly designed harmonies and orchestral strings - it's all in this three and a half minute track. It's no wonder then that such a big tune is drawing some mighty reactions" - There Goes The Fear - MP3 Of The Day
