interlopers is the new project from Steven Lindsay, singer and songwriter in influential Scottish trio The Big Dish, who were contemporaries of Talk Talk, Prefab Sprout and Scritti Politti. interlopers is Lindsay’s first new music for 15 years, and “move on” together with sublime lead track “nothing will ever be the same again” provide ample proof that he has lost none one of his ability as a songwriter of rare poise and grace. This is elegant, immersive music with humanity and insight at its core.
“I wrote a song about an existential crisis,” Lindsay says of “move on”. “When we know a change in our life is required but taking that first step is the biggest one. Do we need to get on or off the train? Sometimes it’s ok not to have all the answers.”
The Big Dish released three albums between 1986 – 1991 (Swimmer, Creeping Up On Jesus and Satellites), and Lindsay subsequently released two critically acclaimed solo albums, Exit Music (2005) and Kite (2007), before the demise of his label, Echo. After being shortlisted for Scotland’s Aspect Art prize in 2011 Lindsay became a full-time artist and has found acclaim and success as a painter.
