Sucker Punch Records / Jam Live Presents:
The Velveteens are a five piece band from Leeds, England. Initially formed in 2012 by singers/instrumentalists Immy, Ione and Katie, the band has evolved from a mostly covers based acoustic outfit into a full, electrified band with a largely original repertoire and entirely new sound. Joined in late 2015 by drummer Josh and organist Joel, The Velveteens have since played many exciting venues and shows around the country and several inner city festivals such as 100 Club London, Jazz Café Camden and Live At Leeds Festival, with plenty more shows on the way.
With a sound that is still relevant whilst nodding to its past influences, as well as a distinctive look and on stage style, The Velveteens create an individual, varied and enjoyable set, thanks in no small part to their energetic stage presence, tight harmonies and infectious melodies.
The band’s unique sound and image has seen positive reviews/comments from a number of independent blogs and articles, most recently featured in Fred Perry Subculture’s “Leeds Sound” article. This is further reflected in the large following The Velveteens possess across several social media platforms.
Originally formed in 2014 as an acoustic duo act, Elephant Bay are now a 5 piece alternative rock band based in Clitheroe, Lancashire.
Since forming two years ago, Leeds grit-rock four-piece Neon Dolls have been busy perfecting their hybrid of muscular Britpop and shoutalong punk vocals and blowing away audiences on the buzzing UK music scene.
Formed from the ashes of defunct bands on the scene, the boys quickly developed a sonic formula influenced by Northern guitar greats Oasis, The Verve and The Stone Roses as well as more recent hardcore and grunge bands from the USA.
With a growing fanbase affectionately dubbed the Neon Army
behind them, tracks from their debut album Imperial (released May 2014) and 2nd album When It Strikes (released November 2016) have been playlisted on BBC Introducing and their sold out live shows led to Fred Perry Subculture hailing them as one of the best new bands in the country.
