INDIGO Velvet are a young band from Edinburgh who’ve been on our radar for about a year now. To date, they’ve gained support from Jim Gellatly via his XFM Scotland / Amazing Radio shows, been broadcast on STV and their music has been synced to a Visit Scotland advertising campaign.
The quartet have also supported the likes of Model Aeroplanes, Honeyblood, The LaFontaines and performed at Electric Fields Festival.
Their indie/pop sound is like a perfect summer soundtrack, colourful, upbeat and catchy. Following the release of single Blue late last year, they have performed a string of sell-out shows, most recently at King Tut’s in Glasgow earlier this month.
Their profile and popularity are both on an upwards trajectory and 2016 looks set to be their breakthrough year. The band tour the UK supporting Newcastle band Lisbon from 3-6 February, visiting Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Leeds. Listen at https://soundcloud.com/indigovelvet
