Scottish four-piece, Indigo Velvet, unveil another slice of vibrant tropical indie-pop through the stirring new single ‘Nineteen’

Their second single of 2018, and fifth since 2016, the Edinburgh lads have had a magnificent year on tour where they performed in front of 13,000 fans at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro. Indigo Velvet are aiming to finish the year in style, creating an unmistakably effervescent and danceable brand of indie-pop,

‘Nineteen’ finds Indigo Velvet at the top of their game. Opening with shimmering samples, ‘Nineteen’ perfectly captures the sparkling dual harmonies of Darren Barclay (lead vocals, guitar) and Jason Tucker (backing vocals, guitar), blended neatly by an impressively hypnotic rhythm section and soaring guitar segments.

Billy McMahon (drums) and Laurie Adams (bass) complete a line-up that was previously featured as ICM’s Song of the Week this time last year for the release of their joyous melodic single ‘Mona’.

Now, with Nineteen released, there are consecutive single releases scheduled for early 2019 and a European tour in the works, Indigo Velvet is determined to make 2019 their own.
