Raintown to release their new album this October

Glasgow-based country duo Raintown return with their second album WRITING ON THE WALL. Set for release on October 9, the album comprises 12 new tracks from Paul and Claire McArthur- Bain, an award winning husband-and-wife duo who are fast gaining the reputation as one of the hottest country acts in Europe. In their three year history Raintown have won eight awards including Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Yearat the 2014 British Country Music Awards, plus Duo of the Year in 2013 and Record of the Year at the 2012 Scottish New Music Awards. Fan-funded on PledgeMusic, WRITING ON THE WALL continues to cement their place as one of the UK’s leading new breed of country acts. The album is an eclectic mix of lyrical stories, from country to guitar-driven pop. The recently married couple fuse their passion for country music with their broad musical influences to continue the tradition of exciting new music. Their catchy hooks and dynamic male/female harmonies are delivered with a passion and style that demands attention, while their carefully crafted lyrics articulate human emotions in a sincere, ‘heart on the sleeve’ kind of way. Raintown are the only band to have performed at all 3 successful Country 2 Country festivals at London’s O2 – in 2015 they played to a full capacity crowd at the Brooklyn Bowl, the largest of the ‘pop-up’ venues. This summer also saw Raintown play the main stage at the Cornbury Music Festival alongside the likes of Tom Jones and Lulu and perform at The Country Collective at Canary Wharf with Ward Thomas and Callaghan.
