Reliably informed

Best known for his work as guitarist and songwriter with Scottish alternative rock band Arab Strap, Malcolm Middleton has built up quite the career as a solo artist too. With his sixth album Summer Of 13 out this month, there’s a chance to catch his new output at Sage Gateshead on Tuesday 31st May.

Over the course of a decade, he released six studio albums with Arab Strap and he’s honed his skills as a songwriter wonderfully on his own too. Developing something that has a nice alternative flavour, whilst still having charming pop sensibilities, there’s lots to like about Middleton. With support coming in the form the quite majestic twee, folksy, indie pop of fellow Scot Pictish Trail, it’s a quite splendid assortment of musical talents.

Malcolm Middleton and Pictish Trail play Sage Gateshead on Tuesday 31st May.
