It was a busy night at St. Luke’s in Glasgow last night as the 2018 edition of the Scottish Alternative Music Awards took place.

I’ve always found that the SAMAs are a very good barometer for the finest emerging talent in Scottish music. Previous winners include The Van T’sLewis CapaldiBe Charlotte and Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5.

So who went home with the coveted trophies last night?

Best hip-hop went to Solareye, check out their single ‘Raindropsbrainbox‘ below.

Best electronic was given to Lo Kindre for tracks such as ‘Torment of One

Declan Welsh and the Decadent West took the prize for best rock/alternative. Watch ‘Lull‘ below.

The best newcomers were the irrepressible The Dunts.

Songs like ‘Honey‘ were what gave Megan Airlie the nod in the best newcomer category.

And finally, LYLO were named best live act.

Some fantastic names, and some very exciting talents that we’re looking forward to following.
