Matt Robertson and Craig Harkness, childhood friends from Glasgow, released the pre-summer smash ‘Paradise’ on 28 March. The shining indie-pop banger is nicely pieced together in terms of both production and songwriting, with an infectious chorus and a subtle mix of groove and grit. Under the name Victoria’s Flight, this release is the group’s first since 2017. If that means they’ve spent the past two years writing a collection of tunes in the same vein as this one, it’s not been time wasted.
