VIOLET CONTOURS  

“Whenever festival season is calling, Violet Contours are the band I go to. If you love feel good, bouncy, danceable vibes as much as I do, you’ll love this band” - Kycker, Our Favourite Artists of 2018  

“Their infectious high energy sound merges romantic lyrics with Afro-Pop to create a refreshing take on your typical indie rock band…BIG THINGS ARE ON THE HORIZON FOR THE YORK LADS” - Chalkpit Records  

“From dance floor fillers to more lighter-in-the-air stuff, Violet Contours have got every possible human feeling covered in their set.” - Get Into This  

“Violet Contours’ set was fabulous high energy indie-rock with a soupçon of afro-pop.” - The Manchester Review  

Supported by BBC introducing, Fred Perry sub-culture, Chalk-pit records and many more, Violet Contours have gone from strength to strength since their inception. Mixing high energy indie with an Afro-pop twist the York based four-piece have garnered a strong and growing following in their hometown and further afield. After spending some time recently in the studio working with an award winning team (Credits include : The 1975, Jake Bugg, The Gaslight Anthem, James, The View, Amber Run etc) - the Violet Contours are all set to release their most focussed and infectious material yet.  

THE SEROTONES  

Hailing from York, indie newcomers, the SEROTONES, have quickly established themselves on the gig circuit across the north. The teenage outfit was formed by front man Duke Whitter and Sonny Leach: respective sons, of course, of Shed Seven indie stars Rick and Alan. With recently released music already being recognized by the likes of This Feeling And BBC introducing you can expect one hell of a set.
