State Broadcasters album launch, with The Son(s) and Hailey Beavis
A Different Past is the long awaited third album from Glasgow four-piece, State Broadcasters. Never ones to rush things, the State Broadcasters have meticulously crafted an album which fuses their distinct Scottish sound with sweet pop-soul songs; creating a modern day sophisti-pop record in the process.

The State Broadcasters achieved wide critical acclaim for their 2009 debut The Ship and the Iceberg, and for the 2012 follow up, the darker toned Ghosts We Must Carry, which the Sunday Mail heralded as one of the best Scots albums so far this year.

The title, A Different Past, is a slight at the nostalgia industry as the album encourages the listener to believe that we now live in a kinder and fairer society than we ever have done, despite all the bad news of our current political landscape.

We should embrace the world we live in today rather than revisiting and revising memories of our youth and trying to convince ourselves it really was all great fun. The album also showcases a more playful, upbeat side of the band, while containing enough of their trademark tear jerking melancholia to keep long term fans happy...ish.

Support comes from The Son(s) - fellow melancholy pop purveyors from the house of Olive Grove, and Hailey Beavis - whose beguiling and honest songwriting never fails to stun.
