Stupid in the Dark
In the words of lyricist Ana Nowosielska, the Glasgow rock band are “painting stories in real life” with their infectious brand of pop-rock.
Altered Sky stand out from the crowd with their upbeat, punkish sensibility which is the backbone to their radio-friendly college rock.
Formed in 2010, this hard-working band have travelled along the traditional route of playing small venues up and down the country.
Those efforts look set to bear fruit as the stages, crowds and fanbase all are becoming bigger, alongside the bands they are playing with.
