S’ N’J are an independent, four-piece, pop/alternative band from Glasgow, Scotland. With ear-worm choruses, a Glaswegian charm and vibrant, bursting-with-energy performances, their songs are sure to get your head bopping, voice chanting and above all, are the perfect soundtrack for those summer afternoons spent partying, drinking and getting sunburnt.
The band was established in 2015 originally by Sara and Junbug (hence the name of the band) but with new members being introduced over time and drawing influence from pop, country, folk and rock music, the sound of the band has developed into an original and exciting take on modern pop music.
A substantial part of their following was gained through their viral video ‘I Took a Pill in Ibiza – Scottish Version!’ which was shared by ContentBible, so far gaining 18k views on YouTube, with this following continuing to grow with the release of new music, live performances and busking on the streets of Glasgow’s city centre.
S’N’J pride themselves on creating music that comes from the heart – writing meaningful and emotional songs inspired by real-life experiences that connect with listeners of all ages – as well as being entirely responsible for their own successes with no input from management, labels or promoters.
Recent highlights in the band’s career include their latest single ‘Can You Hear Me?’ receiving airplay on BBC Radio nan Gàidheal and featuring on Jim Gellalty’s (Amazing Radio) August Spotify playlist, playing a headline slot in Òran Mór as part of Glasgow’s West End Festival, receiving $1,000 for reaching the semi-final of the Hard Rock Café’s international ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition and performing the Harlequin’s Den stage at Butefest.
With 3 more singles planned for release over the next year (recorded by Chris Marshall whose clients include Gerry Cinnamon & Baby Strange), this ambitious young band are determined to achieve their dreams of creating energetic, relevant and addictively catchy music that will resonate with audiences worldwide.
