SINGLE REVIEW | CAN’T SEE YOU TONIGHT | MOSAICS

Mosaics, hailing from Fife, are a 5 piece indie rock band ready to make a name for themselves in the Scottish music scene. They combine a mix of indie rock with catchy pop melodies, themes that are evident in their latest single, Can’t see you tonight. The band consists of Alex Wilson (lead vocalist), Roy Jarvis (lead guitarist), Liam Napier (drummer), Duncan Lawrie (bassist) and Jack Bryce (rhythm guitar).

The track starts off with some electrifying guitar, which really sets up the mood of the rest of the song. The guitar riff is extremely catchy and transitions into the first verse beautifully. The vocals are outstanding and the use of the guitars throughout is just masterful. When put all together, along with the rocky drums, it creates a catchy indie-rock banger similar to the likes of Two Door Cinema Club. The song changes up its transitions between verses which helps take the song to another level. The song outros with some cool guitar effects, which provides the perfect ending.

They have also shot the music video recently, perfectly capturing their sound with their visuals. The band are seen rocking out on a hill above a brightly coloured flower patch which lead vocalist, Alex, walks through throughout. The video was shot by musical director and cinematographer, Stuart Alexander (@stuartalxndr) who has worked with the likes of SAINT PHNX, Lucia and the Best Boys and even the Children in Need charity single. A fantastic music video for a top quality song.

Can’t see you tonight is the second single Mosaics have released – following on from their single Berlin earlier this year – since the success of their debut ep ‘mosaics EP’ last year. The 5 piece have already impressed locally winning the Breakout Fest’s Battle of the Bands, which earnt them a spot on the lineup for this year’s Breakout Festival and will be keen to take it to the next level.

I’m sure the future is very bright for Mosaics, and I can’t wait to check out what they bring out next. If you haven’t already, please check them out and follow their socials, it is worth it!
