The Scottish Enlightenment



The Scottish Enlightenment formed in Fife, Scotland in 2004 as a four piece and went through a number of line-up reshuffles before settling as a four piece (although live show often feature additional musicians). From early on the band was involved with the Moojuice Records collective - a group of musicians/producers based in Fife. The Scottish Enlightenment's first release was a 7 track mini-album on the Moojuice label, entitled Volo ut Sis, which was restricted to 120 copies. Three of the tracks on that Album formed the band's second release, the "Eyes" E.P., in April 2007. The three songs reveal a mix of influences both British (idlewild, Arab strap...) and American (Pavement, Built to Spill...). The title track "Eyes" was played on Radio 1, BBC6 Music, and XFM, and the video reached MTV2's "120 Minutes" and "The Indie Mixtape", giving the band exposure across Europe.
