Interlopers – Move On

Okay kids, and now for something completely different. Let me take you back to the early β€˜90s of the last century. You probably weren’t even born then. That was a time I was very fond of Scottish band The Big Dish. Especially their album Satellites, which included the wonderful single Miss America. Sophisticated pop at its best. Alas, the trio split up soon after due to a lack of commercial success. A real pity!

Subsequently, the band’s front man Steven Lindsay released two critically acclaimed solo albums, before turning a successful painter. However, when lockdown put art exhibitions on hold, he had time to assess approximately 50 songs he’d written the years prior. He picked the best ten, which will appear on the self-titled debut album of his new project Interlopers. It’ll be out on 30 May and will close with a cover of an unfinished Associates song, which Lindsay completed. The record features his first new music in 15 years’ time.

Next to vocal duties, the multi-instrumentalist also plays guitar, bass and keyboards on the long-player. That’s true for its new single as well. Move On is a delicate song with a vocal melody somewhere half way The Airborne Toxic Event’s Somewhere Around Midnight and David Guetta (feat. Kelly Rowland)’s When Love Takes Over. Brings back fond memories of The Big Dish.

Lindsay says about it: β€œI wrote a song about an existential crisis. When we know a change in our life is required but taking that first step is the biggest one. Do we need to get on or off the train? Sometimes it’s ok not to have all the answers.”
