Blacktzar is an electropop band from Glasgow comprised of Tom McGarrigle, Paul Bryan, Blair McMillan, and Ross Taberner. Since forming in early 2009, they have set about establishing their own unique sound – a blend of twisted electronics and genuine songwriting flair drawing comparisons with Echo & the Bunnymen, Depeche Mode, a-ha, and New Order.
2010 looks set to be a breakthrough year for the group as they release exciting new material on their own label Scooter Records. This can only enhance their growing reputation, which includes airplay on BBC Radio 1, Radio 6, Galaxy FM, BBC Radio Scotland, and, most impressively, on prominent Global Tastemaker Sat Bisla’s exclusive “Passport Approved” Radio Show, which broadcasts across the USA. If this pep talk hasn’t convinced you yet about the Glaswegians’ potential, give them a listen and get ready to be taken back to an ’80s teenage movieland of angst and broken love.
