Cumbernauld pop quartet Madison launched their debut EP Cogs and Wheels at The Forge Community Hall in Eastfield on Saturday night.

The sold out gig, with support from the talented Craig Horne, gave hometown fans the first taste of the new material.

Madison kicked of the night with Crimson, a punchy pop rock song that set the tone for the night.

For such a young band, it was very refreshing to see how much energy Madison put into their performance, you can see that this is not just a hobby for the lads, this really means something to them.

Often with up and coming bands, they lack the confidence required to keep the crowd entertained, this however, is no problem for Madison, as lead singer Russell Ferguson just oozes charisma with his impressive stage presence.

The highlight of the night was the EP’s title track Cogs and Wheels, with another mix of pop and rock, it portrays a more sensitive side to the band.

It also seems to be a fans favourite as between the impressive guitar licks, the crowd seemed to know the lyrics just as well as the band.

Madison, made up of Russell Ferguson, Keir Palmer, Oliver Prinn and Calum Wilson have a certain substance that sets them apart from other up and coming bands, these four are surely destined for big things.

You can catch Madison on the Glasgow leg of their tour on February 22. If you want
