Based along the Firth of Forth coast, Amateur Cult announced himself in 2022 with the debut album ‘The Mirrored Pattern’, creating a unique take on post punk and electronica, embracing stark atmospherics, and emphatic darkwave rhythms, receiving praise from BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq, The Herald Scotland, Keep It Fast, Snack Mag and Is This Music?

Supplementing his sound with a live band featuring members of Acidsaurus Bong and the experimental sounds of saxophonist Andrew J. Brooks, Amateur Cult returns with new synth rock meets art punk single, ‘Eyes’.

Joining Amateur Cult for this special double show feature at Summerhall is Glasgow’s Dragged Up, whose cross-pollination of psych, proto-punk, garage and spoken word, has seen them put out acclaimed EP ‘Hex Domestic’ on Cruel Nature Records with a new album out in early 2024.

Support also comes from artist and musician samwooddoowmas.

"Pure, emphatic, and intense; Amateur Cult just shakes you up. Everything about it is relentless"Rave Child
"[Dragged Up] - it's slackedrist, it’s proto-grunge, it’s indie with edge"Aural Aggravation
