NEW SINGLE NOBODY EVERYONE
Disobedient Records
23 April 2021

Glasgow alt-rock four-piece Weekend Debt are pleased to announce the release of their new single, ‘Nobody Everyone’.

Commenting on the track, guitarist Calvin Smith said: “‘Nobody Everyone’ is a song that came from bottled-up emotions about a breakup. The more I let these emotions get to me, the angrier and more upset I got, which probably resulted in such a hard and heavy tune, something we hadn’t really delved into properly. It’s definitely one of our favourite songs to play live.”

Starting 2020 with a packed headline show at King Tut’s and release of fan favourite ‘Legato‘, Weekend Debt found a new lease of life during the COVID-19 lockdown and continued to create, write and improve on their abilities and relationship as a band. 

Recent singles ‘Pomposity‘ and ‘Why Don’t You Realise?‘ garnered attention across the country as well as support from BBC Introducing Scotland and Tenement TV. 

Being brought up on Scottish artists such as The View and Paolo Nutini, much of Grant’s songwriting follows a similar route – personal and poetic stories moulded into catchy melodies. 

“The band really started out of sheer boredom. Being from Lanark in Scotland, there is not a lot to do. Harvey, Russell and I had been pals and really bonded through a shared love of music, so it started as more of a mess around. Once we started writing songs together, we decided to take it a bit more seriously, which led to Calvin joining the band, and from there it’s just been a natural progression. It’s great seeing how far we’ve come.”

Weekend Debt’s sound is fronted by an instantly identifiable Scottish accent and influenced by a blend of each member’s taste. Compared to the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, The Vaccines, Vistas and Inhaler, the band’s latest single is undeniably their best to date.
