Skinny Cover Models

Skinny Cover Models

Those foolish folks at The Skinny have seen fit to make us their cover models for the month of March (I would say it’s gonna damage sales if it weren’t a free paper). On top of this they’ve written a very nice feature about us, given the album 4/5 and even allowed Ziggy to rant […]

Great Escape

“Scottish DIY folk quintet FOUND make a pounding experimental dance-pop that sways towards the addictive electro-kitchness of Hot Chip and then onto the sex appeal of Prince and beyond. Excellently original stuff.” The Great Escape, Brighton, May 2009

Fidelities EP is List Single of the Fortnight

Okay, this is actually old news (it was in the 19 Mar – 2 Apr 2009 issue) but we were away in Texas when it came out so I’ve only just got my hands on a copy. . . . They are all highlights this issue but just miss Single of the Fortnight (5/5), an […]

Clash Magazine Ones To Watch

Clash Magazine Ones To Watch

Clash Magazine have done a nice little feature on us in their Ones To Watch section. (They spelt my name wrong and we’re a quintet but it’s all good). Read it on their site here . . . or just move your eyes downwards and read it here: The Edinburgh electro-funk-folk quartet have produced a […]

Scotsman Cover Stars

We’re the cover stars of The Scotsman’s Crituqe magazine today. Andrew Eaton has written a very nice piece about the healthy state of the Edinburgh music scene and decided to feature us as the number one band to see. Thanks Andrew!

Great review of Fidelities EP in The Skinny

Nick Mitchell has given our new EP 4/5 and said some very nice things: Apparently designed to give the lie to those who say the Scottish music scene is too ponderous or introspective, Edinburgh collective FOUND are specialists in skewed, mashed-up folk-tronica. Fans of Attic Lights and Make Model already know about their digital talents […]

FOUND in News Of The World

There was a nice little feature by Tim Barr in yesterday’s News Of The World on FOUND, our SXSW fundraiser album and Cybraphon.

Scotsman Live Review, Limbo 5 February

Edinburgh’s Found, by contrast, both look and sound more and more like a band ready for proper success.Having started out as an experiment by three art school students, they’ve mutated into a fully fledged, hugely confident five-piece live band…

You’re Really Quite The Catch review in The Skinny

Written by: Euan Ferguson Published: Tue 30 Sep 2008 It feels like rasping Found frontman Ziggy, the drinking man’s Paolo Nutini, scrawled this inappropriately acerbic anti-love ballad to an unsuitable girlfriend at the arse-end of a long, desperate session. Comparisons with fellow morning-after melancholists Arab Strap are inevitable, but Found’s freeform approach to composition and […]

Word to The Word

Just read a lovely review of our new album in the current issue of Word Magazine. Here’s what they had to say: FOUND This Mess We Keep Reshaping (Fence) More handcrafted delights from King Creosote’s cottage-industry label Both band name and album title are spot on. Like musical beachcombers, Edinburgh quintet Found take full advantage […]

What the papers say . . .

FNC805 BackHere’s what the press have been saying about us recently . . .

“Theirs is an ever-evolving musical voyage gliding somewhere between The Earliers’ psychedelic pulse, Arab Strap’s woozy wonder-pop and an explosion in an Indie vinyl pressing plant.” Clash

FOUND . . . 66 in The List’s Hot 100

Yes that’s right we’re officially 26 places hotter than Franz Ferdinand and 5 than Phil Kay (but you knew that anyway) . . . we’re The List’s HOT 66 for 2006. Ouch.
