It is no secret that Scotland has a vibrant and creative music scene that has produced a plethora of internationally-renowned acts such as Primal Scream, Biffy Clyro, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Big Country, Belle and Sebastian, Boards of Canada, Alestorm, Franz Ferdinand, Texas, Frightened Rabbit, Twin Atlantic, Travis and We Were Promised Jetpacks, among others.
Although it does not have such a wide reach and recognition (as in any other place), the experimental/post/instrumental rock in the country is thriving as well. Mogwai may be the first name that comes to your mind, but there are so many other talented bands and musicians that should be heard about.
Scroll through below for a list of our favorite Scottish experimental/post/instrumental rock musicians worth taking a listen to. If you have any bands you’d like to add please let us know in the comments.
