Glasgow duo Poster Paints, featuring Carla J Easton (TeenCanteen, The Vaselines) and Simon Liddell (Frightened Rabbit, Olympic Swimmers), have released their debut Blood Orange EP via Ernest Jenning Record Co / Olive Grove Records.
Easton comments on the release partnership:
We’re really excited to be working with Ernest Jenning and Olive Grove Records on releasing our music this year! It’s a brilliant opportunity for us to collaborate with two brilliant independent labels who are committed to supporting artists they love and be part of a global family who will nurture our music.
Poster Paints blends a 90s Indie-Pop vocal approach from Easton with Shoegaze guitar from Liddell, who met initially through Easton’s work with The Vaselines.
