[video of the week] Alison Eales – Fifty-Five North

“Fifty-Five North” is the first single to be taken from Alison Eales’ debut album “Mox Nox”.

A song firmly rooted in Glasgow, and expresses how a place can be both transformative and overwhelming. The song features samples from the Glasgow subway, with a rhythm track from the sounds of the train doors closing, and a melody made from the ping of the turnstiles.

Alison is a long-standing member of the band Butcher Boy, playing piano, accordion and other keyboards as well as arranging for choir and brass. The band’s three studio albums: “Profit in Your Poetry” (2007), “React or Die” (2009) and “Helping Hands” (2011) have all been well-received, with “React or Die” featuring in The Times’ top 100 pop albums of the 2000s. The band have also released two EPs. A compilation album, “You Had A Kind Face”, was released on Needle Mythology in 2022, along with three new songs, with tracks mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road. Butcher Boy have supported Belle and Sebastian, Scritti Politti The Wedding Present and more.

Alison is also a member of Glasgow Madrigirls and has collaborated with bands including The Color Waves (USA), The Just Joans (Glasgow) and Featherfin (Norway).
“Mox Nox” is released on vinyl and digitally in March 2023 on Fika Recordings.
