Colin MacIntryre began life as Mull Historical Society with the release of his debut single 'Barcode Bypass'. 2015 saw him celebrate 15 years since that release, delivering a long-overdue 'best of' compilation on XMR, and touring his debut album Loss in its entirety. He even found time to publish his first novel, The Letters of Ivor Punch. It even won the Edinburgh International Book Festival's First Book award later that year. 2016's Dear Satellite is his second studio album release on Xtra Mile, after 2012's City Awakenings which revived the MHS moniker and Colin's creative drive. Dear Satellite is ten tracks of floating, positive, textually-diverse pop songs – covering spring morning brightness, with a little melancholy wrung into the warmth, and odd experiments sliding into rhyming acoustic pop and electronic drive. It's everything MHS has been about since its inception and is possible Colin's most complete and compelling work to date.
