Transmission Suite are a four-piece indie / electronic band from Scotland. Their music is best described as a mixture of 80’s electronic, shoegaze, 90’s baggy and dream pop. This is the result of a melting pot of styles that creates an up-to-date version of electronic led music with guitars from the decades past and takes it right into the present.

Transmission Suite’s debut single ‘Fade Away’ is out 10th February.

“Fade Away” was one of the earliest songs we wrote in this project, probably around three years ago. It was around the time that we started messing about with drum machines and synthesizers, so we were still kind of finding our way a bit. We kept playing it but it never really stood out until maybe a couple of years later where we got that little guitar hook and the song seemed to take on a different vibe. Then we added some minor tweaks to the drum sounds and synths and it really started to sound great. It’s kind of fitting that it’s our first release considering it was one of the first songs we wrote together.”

“The beauty of lyrics is that they can mean different things to different people, which is great because it links each person to a song in its own unique way.”

“We never really set out to write songs about anything in particular. For us, melody is really important. A lot of the time the lyrics just come out whilst trying to realise a melody to accompany the music and then we make some adjustments to make things fit and flow better.”

“For this song, we didn’t really think of it as having any particular meaning, but when listening back to it after being recorded, it started to make sense in the context of what was going on at the time in our lives. I guess it’s about being inside your head and being stuck in a bit of a rut, but it also has an element of hope for better times ahead.”

“We thought it would be a great idea to have a lyric video for our first release to add a bit of extra interest and to really help bring the song to life. The video was put together by our guitarist. We added lots of filters and textures to the base content to create a certain vibe – think 2018 horror film ‘Mandy’.”

“We are all football fans at heart. It would be really cool to hear the track over a montage of goals being shown at the end of a big match on TV. The thought of having a terrace anthem is quite appealing. That being said, hearing the opening bars of the synths in an episode of ‘Stranger Things’ would also be really cool.”
