Randolph’s Leap make upbeat, brass-filled indie pop. The 8-piece group, led by Adam Ross, combine buoyant energy and catchy melodies with tenuous rhyming couplets, self-deprecating, humorous lyrics and unexpected tender moments. The band have released an extensive and beloved back catalogue via Scottish DIY labels Lost Map and Olive Grove Records and their music even inspired a touring theatre show called The Isle of Love in 2018.
Recent years have seen the band curate a series of sell-out music and comedy events titled ‘I Can’t Dance To This Music’, feature Michael Fish in a video for their song ‘Weatherman’, record repeat sessions on BBC 6Music and perform across the UK, including a solo tour with James Yorkston (Domino).
