  • ‘Louder Than War’ magazine – Single Review

    September 16th, 2020

    Massive thanks to Joe Whyte and the team over at ‘Louder Than War’ for the single review for ‘Where The Ships Go To Die’:

    “…Stunning new single from award-winning Scots singer. Joe Whyte gets the lowdown….”

    …From Aberdeen, Colin Clyne’s debut album “The Never Ending Pageant” was given a raft of favourable reviews and airplay by the esteemed Bob Harris on BBC6 Music among many others. This new single is a slight change in direction from the folky-rootsy-trad elements of that debut album and sounds to these ears like the American Gothic of Tom Waits, the dark poetry of Nick Cave, the everyman blue collar rock of Steve Earle and oddly enough, one-time next-big-thing Glaswegian rockers Gun…”
