Lenzie Moss Former Teenage Fanclub And Bmx Bandits Member Release New Single 'Let's Take The Day Off' Out 31 March 2014

It's a guy and it's a band. Lenzie Moss, a former member of Teenage Fanclub and BMX Bandits, sees his music as more 'Gregory's Girl' than 'Trainspotting'. His first album was supported by Stuart Maconie, Vic Galloway and Stuart Murdoch for the launch of the Belle and Sebastian singer's Glasgow memoirs 'The Celestial Cafe'.

Lenzie Moss (AKA Finlay Macdonald) is due to release his yet-untitled second album in September 2014 and it promises to be more up-beat and positive than his 2012 debut 'Introducing Lenzie Moss', as can be heard by the new single 'Let's Take the Day Off'.

Finlay sees the emerging themes of Lenzie Moss songs as 'positive images of ordinary Scotland'. More like the gentler kind of portrayal by Bill Forsyth in his movies 'Gregory's Girl' and 'Comfort and Joy' than the darker, seedier Irvine Welsh / Rab C type portrayals that Scotland seems to be better known for.

The first album 'Introducing Lenzie Moss' was released in August 2012 and they have been building a steady fan base since then. The debut single was received well by radio and public and incited Stuart Maconie to remark on Twitter."Kelvin British Summertime by Lenzie Moss..Gorgeous isn't it?" after giving it a spin on his daytime slot on BBC Radio 6 Music. Vic Galloway described the song as 'a future national anthem' when he played it on his BBC Radio Scotland show.

Another celebrity champion of the band has been Belle and Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch.  As well as including a song in his top ten tracks of all time for Uncut magazine, he asked Lenzie Moss to be the sole performers at the launch of his memoirs 'The Celestial Café' - very in-keeping with the themes of the above mentioned debut single which is a nostalgic glance at Glasgow's west end scene in the late 1980s. The first album was written at a time of upheaval in Finlay's life and perhaps that's why it was described by Timeout as 'Smithsesque with hints of darkwave'.

Finlay has been a member of Teenage Fanclub and BMX Bandits in the past.
