A TALENTED Largs musician is hitting all the right notes as he prepares to launch his band's highly-anticipated second album next month.

Brownbear frontman Matt Hickman is hoping to follow up on the success of the band’s debut ‘What is Home?’ in 2018.

He says ‘Demons’, which set to be released on March 17, was harder to write with the expectations that their successful first album has brought.

He explained: “Fans now expect a certain sound and you want to live up to that.

“I think we did a great job of making something exciting, and I honestly can’t wait for people to hear it next month.

“We have quite a distinctive indie-soul sound and we really wanted to capture that.

“We are self-funding, so in some ways we’re just like a local business looking for the public's support."

Matt hopes that listeners can relate to what he has penned.

He said: “Lockdown meant I had more time to write and experiment.

“It’s an emotional and personal album, based on my experiences. There is a lot of soul searching and self-reflection."

The band is hosting an album launch at St Luke’s in Glasgow on March 24, which Matt hopes will kick off another successful year.

He added: “The focus for now is Glasgow, which is the biggest headline show we’ve ever done.

“Hopefully people can make it along and show some support because it feels a bit make or break at the moment.

“A lot of bands can’t afford to do tours and we are no different."

Tickets for the St Luke’s show are just £16.88 and can be bought at www.ticketweb.uk/event/brownbear-saint-lukes-tickets/12878985.
