Young Scottish Indie-Pop band, The 101, have released their track ‘Statues’, which joins a collection of incredible genre-reinforcing bangers.

Drawing influence from the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Bad Suns, Fickle Friends and Passion Pit – the band have consistently produced a body of work which has secured them a name for themselves both locally and nationally since their formation in 2017.

Having already become familiar amongst the Scottish live music scene, the band performed to a packed hometown show in ‘The Lemon Tree’, Aberdeen’s most prestigious live music venue. Furthermore, they’ve supported the likes of Texas, Fickle Friends, Fatherson and Gengahr across the country which has seen them secure a committed fan-base.
