Ralph's favorite video this week is Scarlett by Aberdeen band The Cliftons
The Cliftons have supported luminaries such as The Bluetones and Man Made plus headlined at venues such as The Lemon Tree. The Cliftons are also set to release their follow up EP on January 21st with a hometown show in Tunnels.



No 2: La Fleur

No automatic alt text available.The focus of this week's feature articles on Ralph's Life is firmly on the burgeoning supply of quality Indie music in Scotland currently. With Sunday's Indie Show on Radio KC containing over a third of the tracks played from Scottish based bands and artists, it seems there's a bit of a tidal wave about to swamp the rest of the UK.
One case in point is young (they're so young they cite Catfish & The Bottlemen as an influence) Wishaw band LAFleur. They're only a couple of years into their musical journey together but are rapidly managing to attract the right kind of attention. 
No 3: Rob Jarvis and The Mercury Sons

Ralph's Top 10 Chart as played on Radio KC - 29.1.17
Essex based Alt Rockers Rob Jarvis and The Mercury Sons are due to release their debut single Just To Make You Happy on the 17th of February. 
It's already had its first radio play on the KerrangFresh Blood Show and needless to say Ralph will be giving it a pre-release spin on his Radio KC Indie Show soon.
No 4: VITO
Image may contain: 4 peopleHailing from Newcastle, VITO are four young men with their sights firmly set on achieving greater notoriety than just gigging around their local stomping ground in the North East.

They offer - "a 'no-frills' ethos, focusing on raw, dynamic performances" and "have a flair for compelling lyrics to accompany their upbeat riffs, creating poignant messages through tracks that pack a punch."
