Gutter favourites, SOS are a Glasgow-based band who have graced the Rockness stage and supported Glasvegas on tour since forming in 2010.

The band released their debut EP, “A Challenge To The Dark” last year, featuring signature songs, “Carry On Suzie” and “Today’s The Day”.

Frontman, Jonny Skinner took time out to chat about Scottish talent, life on the road and what to expect from SOS in 2013 . . .

How would you describe your sound to someone who has never heard it?

Sounds like the inside of Phil Spector’s head . . . crazy!

You released your debut EP, “A Challenge To The dark” last year, what were you aiming to achieve with it?

We just wanted to get the songs out there and let people hear and see what reaction we got. Hopefully, it’ll push us onto bigger and better things.

Scotland has produced some exciting talent over the last decade, do you feel pressure to maintain the standard?

No, not really. We just do our own thing. Scotland always has and always will produce talented musicians, writers and artists, it’s part of us. We just take the positives from it and do the best we can rather than feel the pressure.

How has touring affected your development as a band?

It has brought us closer together more because you’re living out of each other’s pockets. It’s just amazing to get out there and play your songs to people.

What can we expect from you in 2013?

A record deal. A debut album. Tour. Great songs. Festivals. The lot!
