Edinburgh indie rock quartet Lost In Vancouver are beginning to generate a real buzz. They’ve performed at Tenement Trail, Carnival 56 and BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals, played alongside artists as diverse as Mark Ronson and The Fratellis, as well as supporting up-and-coming bands such as Lional and Glass Caves.
The band have gained airplay from Jim Gellatly through his Amazing Radio show and been featured by Clash magazine for their brilliant new single Pinot Noir, a spiky, immediate and energetic slice of alt-pop. See Lost In Vancouver live tomorrow when they support The Vegan Leather and NOAH NOAH at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh, at The Hug & Pint in Glasgow on 9 June or at The Mash House in Edinburgh for a hometown headline show on 20 July.
