We've had Biffy Clyro, Twin Atlantic and The Xcerts, now here's another Scottish rock band who look destined for great things. Fatherson released their debut album I Am An Island last week, and it's full to the brim with shimmering hooks and frontman Ross Leighton's charming brogue. Scroll down to check out the very slightly NSFW video for new track "I Like Not Knowing".

Despite only just being out of their teens, Danish band Iceage has managed to craft an even more expansive, compelling, tense and emotional record with their forthcoming album, You're Nothing.
