THE Mackay boys are back in town as the guitar-wielding brothers announce their debut album.
Donald and Stuart Mackay lead from the front in the Dunfermline five-piece’s 12-track record Brankholm Brae.
When gigs return, they intend to “flare it” to the masses with the help of guitarist Harry Dixon, drummer Wayne Robertson and Mark Guyan on keyboard/piano.
Featuring indie pop melodies mixing with rock vocals, the studio album will be released after the recording process is finalised.
They hope to get that done and dusted as soon as possible but the coronavirus pandemic has slowed down their efforts; keeping all but the Mackay twins (who shared a household) apart for long periods.
Donald said: “Working within COVID-19 guidelines for the past few months has caused us to be both careful and innovative, however we do plan to complete the recording, and stay safe.
“I’m excited about TwinsTown and our forthcoming album. I think we are all looking forward with hope and just a little expectation.”
Harry also added: “We love Dunfermline and we hope Brankholm Brae will be loved in both Dunfermline and beyond.
“When we are allowed to gig, we intend to flare it!”
Brankholm Brae will be released across streaming services in due course.
