NOISE have returned this week with the release of a three-track acoustic EP, After the End.

The quartet released two full-band tracks last year, both of which made a huge impression on the Scottish music scene, racking up more than 13,000 streams between them.

With some momentum at their back, the band were keen to get back into the studio but plans were curtailed due to the pandemic.

Not deterred, NOISE set about recording from home and delivered in the form of After the End, released today (Friday, February 12).

Luke Doleman, the band's singer and rhythm guitarist, told The Weekender: "We had several songs that we'd started in the studio, but, obviously, lockdown put all that on hold.

"The first two songs - TOUCH and I Ask Too Much (Maybe?) - were written/produced in my flat during lockdown.

"They were always intended to be acoustic but New Recording 204 is an early phone recording of a part of a song we play as a band called Clockwise - which we're hoping to get back into the studio with whenever the restrictions allow.

"In terms of future plans, we're just looking to release as many singles as we can this year.

"We have three or four which are part-recorded or ready to go and we're proud of. Can't wait to get back into the studio again, actually."
