NEW BAND ALERT- Discopolis
Three teenagers from Edinburgh are starting to make a name for themselves as the new electronic kids on the block otherwise known as Discopolis.
They release their debut single ‘Lofty Ambitions’ on 15th August through Scottish label Eli and Oz.
At only 19, they already they have played slots at some of Scotland’s biggest music festivals, including T in the Park and Wickerman and have received support from NME, Rob Da Bank and Nick Grimshaw alongside numerous blogs.
Discopolis, made up of Fergus (vocals, synth and guitar), Lawrie (synth, guitar and samples) and Dave (synth and drum effects), only formed in 2010 and cames to people’s attention in March this year after they were chosen to play T Break at T in the Park and within a few months they have become one of Scotland’s favourite new bands and are starting the stretch their wings further afield.
They are definitely a band to keep an eye on and will undoubtably join the ‘Scotland’s most loved’ list of bands.
