Future Features is a campaign created by students from Edinburgh Napier University to celebrate the Rip It Up exhibition.

Whilst the Rip It Up exhibition focuses on the history of pop music in Scotland, our Future Features campaign looks ahead to the future of Scottish pop. In this Year of Young People, we have worked with four young and upcoming Scottish artists to create a series of music videos and interviews. Dancing on Tables, SKJØR, Gus Harrower and Anna McLuckie are already making big waves in the Scottish pop music scene and look set to dominate the airwaves in the near future.

Dancing on Tables

Dancing on Tables

Hailing from Dunfermline, pop band Dancing on Tables have featured in various Scottish ‘ones-to-watch’ shortlists and recently signed to American record label LV Music.

Gus Harrower

Singer-songwriter Gus Harrower has performed around Scotland and been featured in several well-known Scottish publications and productions including The Scotsman and STV News. Gus was nominated for the Best Acoustic act for the 2017 Scottish Alternative Music Awards.

Anna McLuckie

Anna McLuckie

Anna McLuckie is a folk musician from Edinburgh. Her music is instantly recognisable by its inclusion of the clarsach – a small Celtic harp. Anna was featured on The Voice back in 2014 and was mentored by will.i.am during her time on the show. Alongside performing as a solo artist, Anna also fronts indie-rock band Diving Station.
