Voting is open for this year's Scottish Album of the Year award - and Largs' very own Brownbear hopes to be in the running.

Written by frontman Matt Hickman over the past five years, the album Demons serves as the band’s sophomore effort following debut album ‘What is Home?’ which was released in 2018.

Now the band is hoping to make the shortlist for a prestigious awards gong - and maybe even go all the way.

Lead singer Matt Hickman said: "What a year it had been for ‘Demons’. Seeing how much this record has meant to you all has been life changing

"If you love this record. Make sure to vote. Let’s keep making Demons beat the odds and get it on the shortlist.

"Please head over to The SAY Award website to vote and then share it with anyone else you know who would love this record

"Thank you all again for all of your support."

Reviews have described Demons as "an upbeat, positive album with hidden depths".

Matt continued: “For the first time in a lot of years I had been home for a consistent period of time, and I was just coming to terms with the last few years of my life and the things I’d been through.

“I suppose it’s quite an honest reflection of the traumas and things I’ve gone through in my life and also the relationships I’ve had.”
