“My favourite band I’ve seen in the last year – Great Playing, Great Songs, Great Performances, Huge Energy” – Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music

“I thought they were brilliant” – Huw Stephens BBC Radio 1 – Tip of the Week

‘The world may not have heard of them yet but, take it from me, Vinyl Jacket are a band at the very top of their game. One memorable radio record is all it needs and they’ll be all over the 6 Music playlist like a rash.’
Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music

‘A joyous blast of dancefloor-friendly art rock with scattershock drums, stuttering guitars and synth squeals.’
Artrocker Magazine

I loved Vinyl Jacket from Newcastle, a band who sound ready to take the world on with colourful, upbeat tunes. Huw Stephens (Glastonbury Festival 2011 Report)

‘Yeah, I like this’ Chris Moyles, Radio 1

Vinyl Jacket are a young five piece that hail from the small village of Wylam in Northumberland, removed from any influence of a ‘scene’ the band developed their own sound and created their unique brand of ‘Diesel-Pop’. Having only formed early 2010 the band headlined the BBC Introducing Stage at In the City and were featured on the Chris Moyles Breakfast Show for BBC Introducing week January 2011.

Their debut single Painting Stations (21.02.11) received airplay from Chris Moyles, Huw Stephens (track of the week), Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson and Capital FM as well as a ‘New Blood’ feature in Artrocker Magazine. They followed up the single by touring the UK with their arsenal of intelligent, intricate and inventive Indie-Pop songs as well as supporting Little Comets, playing Liverpool Sound City and opening the main stage at Evolution Festival. The band were then selected to play the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury Festival by a panel that included Zane Lowe, Jo Whiley and Emily Eavis.
