NeuFutur Magazine Introduces Finlay Morton

Aberdeen-born Finlay Morton releases the follow up to the much lauded ‘Interpret This’.

On ‘Back To Basics’, Morton builds on his much loved formula of bringing together the irreverent, the humorous and the heartfelt to make his form of rock/blues/country all the more sweet.
When Interpret This was released, it picked up play from BBC Radio 2, Radio Scotland and BBC Wales, and garnered attention from The Times, The Express and The Sunday Star; so the forthcoming release of Back To Basics will surely be met by many an anticipating ear.

What’s important to highlight about Morton’s latest release is the high level of real emotion that has been poured into it’s conception. Back To Basics is an album packed to the brim with personal experiences, many of which aren’t enviable ones to have gone through.

Tragically, Real Long Day, for all it’s fine musicianship, is a track soaked in the pain of loss and, more accurately, bereavement.
In turn, when making the record, Finlay suffered a heart attack forcing a hiatus on the proceedings. Upon his release from hospital his first call was to his engineer and, against medical advice, he was straight back in the studio and filming the video to album opener Scary Monsters in a cemetery; a contemplation of one’s own mortality perhaps.
There’s no faulting his dedication to his art form.
