Having carved out a niche for themselves in the world of popular music, the Proclaimers have achieved world-wide success since their formation in the 1980s.
From the beauty and poignancy of songs like Sunshine on Leith to the cathartic and anthemic singalong-ability of songs like 500 Miles, their songs are on regular rotation at weddings, funerals and everything in between.
Their music was further immortalised in the film Sunshine on Leith in 2013. This year, they’re set to release their twelfth studio album, showing no sign of slowing down as their legend continues to grow.
