The Lapelles Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday

Scotland On Sunday, 17 July 2016, The Lapelles

The Lapelles are five youngsters from East Kilbride who create vibrant and exciting indie-pop songs.

Last week, we watched them play a triumphant set on the T Break Stage at T In The Park, where – perhaps partly thanks to profile-boosting support slots with the likes of The Kooks, Blossoms and The Last Shadow Puppets – they performed to a sizeable audience, comfortably one of our T In The Park highlights.

The quintet look poised to make a major impact; they’ve got the radio-friendly songs, an electrifying live show, a growing fanbase, and they recently signed a management deal with the company that represents heavyweight acts like Arctic Monkeys and The Last Shadow Puppets.

We recommend seeing them live at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival on 4-6 August, or Electric Fields Festival from 26-27 August.

Visit to hear some of their songs.
