"sixpeopleaway sound awesome, brilliant stuff, Iím not just saying this but if there are A+R people listening right now you could do a lot worse than to sign these guys up, listen to this its fantastic!..."
(UNSIGNED HEROES, INTRODUCING LIVE SESSION)
VIC GALLOWAY, BBC RADIO ONE
"sixpeopleaway is an incredible talent, on the verge of huge acclaim...Pure genius...everything I've ever said about the band is totally justified and more. With just acoustic guitar, bass, vocals and a laptop, they make the most beautiful acoustic electronica..."
(SINGLE OF THE WEEK, X-POSURE SHOWCASE)
JIM GELLATLY, XFM
"The outfit make beautiful, beat-fuelled acoustic tracks which stick out like a sore thumb from the current crop of supermarket indie-touting wannabes and are all the better for it... 'Providence' builds from stunningly beautiful vocals and clipped beats to a sumptuous string-tinged masterpiece... Genuinely heartfelt and utterly inventive - you can't ask for much more than that..."
(5/5, SINGLE OF THE FORTNIGHT)
"The Falkirk duo have carved out an individual sound incorporating fractured laptop beats interwoven with bass, acoustic guitar and beautiful vocals... excellent... definitely worth the trek to your local music venue."
"Sixpeopleaway's fractured on-the-edge songwriting treads that line between alternative and commercial with ease. With a stirring, stunning voice Alistair Merrick is halfway there but it's his knack for a tune and his genuinely original electronic arrangements (aided and abetted by Robert Hitchen) that set him aside from the rest of the singer-songwriter crew..."
STUART MCHUGH - EDITOR - IS THIS MUSIC?
"We were blown away. Forget any singer-songwriter preconceived ideas. Alistair has produced very much his own sound...Excellent songs and fresh delivery...confidence and obvious future potential"
MUSIC NEWS SCOTLAND
"At once phenomenally powerful and utterly fragile, sixpeopleaway's distinctive guitar/bass/beats set-up sees an exciting creative force emerging from Glasgow. Sky-scraping melodies delivered by a passionate, almost unworldly voice unafraid of singing from the heart, this is highly crafted songwriting at its finest; provocative, inspiring and nothing less than absolutely beautiful."
"Their music is precision engineered, super-honest acoustic charm, flavoured with clattering clip-beats and heartfelt emotion. Spiky, angular, delicate and sometimes breathtaking, sharper, tougher and better observed than the Blunts and Morrisons of this world. Their star is flying higher and higher..."
FUSE ONLINE MAGAZINE
Press for If.Then.Else // Eve Single:
"Scottish duo Sixpeopleaway continue to impress with this latest offering. While the elegant simplicity of 'Say It's Simple' is a pleasantly accessible if unorthodox pop song, Sixpeopleaway's real appeal lies in the lead two tracks. The distorted crunch that bites halfway through 'If Then Else' is almost certain to catch you off guard, its harder-edged menace jarring against the minimal atmospherics of 'Eve'. Frontman Alistair Merrick is another ace in the hole, his fragile vocal fitting as well with melancholia as it does with chaos... this is solid, convincing stuff. Sixpeopleaway have the tunes, drive and innovation to become a serious proposition in 2009. Promising stuff."
"Light and airy pop, on the surface at least, however, for every hook-in-the-making there's a sudden about-turn, an extra mile before the chart-friendly chorus that never comes. The lead track is a case in point, a joyous jumble of twists as the seemingly inevitable never quite arrives... makes for an intriguing listen; challenging yet very palatable."
Is This Music?
"Glasgow based troubadors sixpeopleaway return with a new single. The Duo are masters of angular acoustic vibes with a clever line in electro backbeats. 'If.Then.Else' is no exception, a hugely vibrant collision with distortion-fuelled, yet controlled beauty. The band have side-stepped neatly into new worlds..."
Fuse Online Magazine
"Long Time Favorites of MNS Glasgow duo sixpeopleaway have done it again with this superb AA side single. One to watch."
Single Of The Month
Music News Scotland
"Double A-side If.Then.Else/Eve suggests the duo possess enough ardour to outlast the competition... the future continues to look bright for sixpeopleaway."
Press for Intermittent Fault EP:
"A band I fell in love with as soon as I heard their debut EP... I've had a sneak preview of the bands forthcoming second EP and its phenomenal..."
(FEATURED AS X-POSURE SESSION BAND, JAN 2008)
JIM GELLATLY, XFM SCOTLAND
"This five-track EP definitely cements our suspicions that they're heading for big things..."
IS THIS MUSIC

"Producing an exciting and original sound... One of our favourite acts: 2008 is full of promise for sixpeopleaway..."
MUSIC NEWS SCOTLAND
"Sixpeopleaway create fragile acoustic tracks with killer beats, soaring vocals and image-creating lyrics..."
