from the hip

One of Glasgow's finest, Deacon Blue, are back with "The Hipsters", their seventh longplayer since their auspicious debut 25 years ago.

First single, the the title track, is a panoramic, string driven number which beautifully details the interplay between Ricky Ross' urgent rasp and Lorraine McIntosh's gorgeous bell tones.

Lovely! Definitely up there with some of their finest singles which harkens back to the magnificence of some "Raintown" era epics.

"The Hipsters" is out now from all fine "shops".


  1. Beautiful single. Love the "was I wroonnnng? bit on the middle eight.

  2. great track...looking forward to more!

  3. Great album, I'm a HUGE fan. I would give it 3.5 stars out of 5. Not as good as Homesick in my humble opinion.
    Going to see them live in Glasgow Sunday night, cannae wait as we say up here.
