Simply Thrilled Mixtape #4 Poster Paints
Poster Paints, in their own words, are Simon Liddell (Olympic Swimmers, Frightened Rabbit) and Carla J Easton (TeenCanteen and Ette) who have changed their way of working and embraced the “new normal” to make art. Their debut single ‘Number 1’ is an instant anthem. Teenage love, feeling invincible and long hot summers. It’s the sound of two people exploring. Glasgow indie pop, dream pop and shoegaze – the bands they grew up listening to, and are passionate about.
Number 1 came out in a limited edition physical form back in May, and I’m happy to say that I was able to procure a copy via Monorail in Glasgow. You can have a listen and then pick up a copy from bandcamp for just £1….all you have to do is click here.
The Simply Thrilled mob are, understandably, simply thrilled that Poster Paints have created the latest of our mixtapes which we are pulling together in lieu of us not being able, just yet, to have any of our regular nights at The Admiral Bar in Glasgow.
It’s a mix which gleefully swerves from soul to indie to 80’s pop with reckless abandon, and it is utterly joyful!

I am in awe! I am an unapologetic fan of Amerie…class R&B. But to find 1 Thing on the same mixtape as Straight To Hell, Velocity Girl and Something Big is genius! JUST GENIUS!
I could just about stand the Belinda Carlisle song when I saw Orbital live and they dropped a sample into Halcyon. On it’s own, it’s just a bit too rich for my taste. Otherwise, a truly excellent and eclectic mix. Completely agree with Echrorich’s comments about Amerie… who knew it would be a perfect follow on from The Jesus & Mary Chain?!
hi ..great mix of songs … the first track has a ‘jump’ at around 24 secs ..great selection though
