MusicMafia presents....The Seven Deadly Sins

The Seven Deadly Sins are an Edinburgh based band formed by singer/songwriter Alex Moran in early 2010. Moran was joined by bassist Kevin Turner, lead guitarist Euan Moran and drummer Nic Ross.

Since their debut on the Scottish live circuit in September 2010 The Seven Deadly Sins have supported Spectrals, The Damned, The Icarus Line, Glasvegas, Elliot Brood and Doll and The Kicks

The band have played and headlined several of Edinburgh and Glasgow’s most acclaimed venues such as King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Liquid Room, Barrowlands 2, Sneaky Pete’s, The Captains Rest, Cabaret Voltaire, The Voodoo Rooms, Electric Circus in addition to a number of Scottish Festivals.

Since September 2011 the band have been organising and promoting their own monthly shows at Cabaret Voltaire and Sneaky Pete’s, entitled ‘A Deadly Night Out.’ The Seven Deadly Sins choose their own support artists; open the evenings with a small acoustic/rarities set and then return to play an electric headline set.

Within months of forming, The Seven Deadly Sins received an invite to record three singles with London-based management company The Animal Farm. They began recording in the capital during summer 2010.

Early in 2011, The Seven Deadly Sins recorded two tracks at the famous Ca Va Sound studios in Glasgow (where Belle and Sebastian, The Fall and Mogwai have recorded). They recently returned to Ca Va to record with Geoff Allan on 6 new tracks. 

In the last twelve months The Seven Deadly Sins have released three music videos for ‘Work Me like a Dog,’ ‘Silver and Gold’ and ‘21st Century Man’ which was shot in Manhattan, New York. These are all directed, edited and graded by well-known Hollywood visual effects guru Ivan Moran (has worked on the visual effects for such films as The Dark Knight, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) and London based film maker Henry Stafford.

Henry Stafford is currently working on a fourth music video for the band, to be released to coincide with The Seven Deadly Sins’ EP release in June 2012 and UK tour in the autumn.
"Inspired in part by the shimmer of Teenage Fanclub and the heaviness of Nirvana. This blend seems to have won them a few admirers, mohawk-haired Scottish music impresario Jim Gellatly among them. Now is a good chance as any to seize the day and say 'I was there' before their popular reference points elevate them to a bigger festival stage than the Tall Ships festival." Edinburgh Evening News
