More Info


"Sacre Noir is more of a mini album from a one-woman band who aside from some quite dramatic vocals - similar in tone to Polly Harvey at times, but often so understated it's hard to fix on. The sound initially seems lo-fi and muffled but further listening hints at some complex layersmith some fairly straightforward acoustic guitar tunes embelished with multi-tracked ambient sounds. 'Control' is closest to pop while 'Never Before' is quite scary, Eartha Kitt trapped in a mineshaft with the Jesus and Mary Chain."

    Launch night for the It's Too Late Now music video from Sacre Noir, featuring screenings of both the music video and behind the scenes video, plus a live set from Sacre Noir. "In 2012 we collaborated with David Sodergren of Boshpit Productions to create our debut music video - She Can't Take It. In this video we created a world beyond the frame featuring twisted clowns, broken dolls and otherworldly happenings. After the success of this video we were encouraged to create a trilogy of videos featuring this world with She Can't Take It forming the first episode. 2013 saw the release of our second video in this trilogy, produced in collaboration with Stuart Millar of Aristotle Events Filming - Rue Crimée. This video continued the story of the world beyond the frame and played with themes of madness and isolation. In 2014 we took the reigns to create the third and final video of the series - It's Too Late Now. This release has been delayed due to the tragic death of Robbie Morrison (who appears in both Rue Crimée and It's Too Late Now) - however we feel the time is now right to unleash this music video alongside a Sacre Noir live show in Edinburgh." Doors 8pm / free entry. Moriarty Bar & Brasserie, Edinburgh

    Dancing Mice: http://www.dancingmice.co.uk/ “It’s hard to find solid comparisons for the Dancing Mice. There’s definitely something of an 80s influence in there, with an array of antique synths on display but Dancing Mice aren’t retro-ironists, borrowing sounds from a much mocked musical era with their tongues poked firmly in their cheeks. Eroded takes in electronic pop, weird folk, psychedelia and post-punk, melding them into a quirky, erudite style with some cool pop hooks.” Is This Music? Sacre Noir: Scottish based electronica three piece, centred around vocalist / producer Carrie Beattie; initially conceived as a solo project, Sacre Noir released a trilogy of EPs before bringing in the talents of Phil Lock on guitar and Alexis Beattie on electronic drums to perform live and record. http://www.reverbnation.com/sacrenoir PAL: our sound engineer Nora’s band… pop / new wave influences, songs in German, and I even heard they have a male drummer, shocking! plus possibly one more band!

    On Sunday 24th and 31st August, and Sunday 7th and 14th September, we’re featuring a selection of bands and inviting you to vote for the ones you prefer. Join us to discover an eclectic mix of “new” (or not so new, but not well established yet) bands from around Edinburgh, all playing short sets, and who knows, one (or more) or them could become your next favourite band(s)! At the end of each night, two bands will be put forward – one by audience vote, one by the organisers’ decision – and invited to play the second stage of this series, on Sunday 28th September, where the band who impresses everyone the most will walk away with a £250 cash prize (plus other prizes for the runners up). This week’s selection will feature: Premeditated: https://soundcloud.com/premeditated-1 Eat Meater: Alansmithee: http://alansmithee.bandcamp.com/ Hayz and Jayz: https://soundcloud.com/hayznjays Sacre Noir: http://www.savagerecordings.com/sacrenoir/ + one tbc The running order will be drawn on the night and we encourage you to attend from start to finish to sample all the bands, with the first one starting at 7.30pm, and the last one finishing around 11.15pm, followed by a guest band (playing whilst we collect and count up the results of the vote!) before we announce the winners before midnight.
