Violet Cities Short Info

VIOLET CITIES are an original four piece Indie/Pop band from Leicester.

"Leicester will ring with their admirable tunes for a long time to come. Exhilarating." Arts In Leicester Magazine

"Within the first few tracks, I felt like this band would suit the charts.." - Joe Doyle

"The lead singer's dynamic, passionate vocals complement the oozing energy from the rest of the band creating an indie pop sound to die for.. " - Hannah Steward

Dig around their twitter feed and you might come to the conclusion that Violet Cities are the latest in a long line of boy bands. It's certainly true that the looks and talent of these four young men haven't escaped the attention of teenage girls (and boys) keen to find a new poster for their bedroom walls.

But, this is only half the story. Boy band can be a maligned term and there's nothing manufactured about James, James, Paul and Dan. Quality musicianship, songs about their day jobs in which they graft, clever harmonies and a live show that will appeal to teeny bopper, indie blogger and your granny alike. There's a freshness, friendliness and honesty about their approach that delights all who see them.

2014 has been a stunning year for Violet Cities during which, through hard work and tenacious talent, they've shown how they can support out-there indie acts such as Ezra Furman whilst not being out of place sharing a festival main stage with Labrinth and UB40 or headlining their local Oxjam event. 2015 is set to be even better.

This is more Beatles than Boyzone. You'd be crazy to miss out on this bandwagon
