INDIGO VELVET are a young band from Edinburgh who’ve been on our radar this past year.

To date, they’ve gained support from Jim Gellatly via his XFM Scotland and 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, and having released single ‘Blue’ late last year, with sell out shows, [last week at King Tuts being the most recent], their profile and popularity is on an upwards trajectory and 2016 looks set to be their breakthrough year.

The band tour the UK supporting Newcastle band Lisbon 3-6 February visiting Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Leeds.
