Vinyl Jacket release the follow up to their debut single Painting Stations with the summer blast of Koala.
The release is backed by an exclusive remix and b-side Broken Record, a live favourite and successful track in it’s own right having topped the Best of Myspace and Amazing Radio charts this year.
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 Radio 1′s BBC Introducing week January 2011.
Their debut single Painting Stations (21.02.11) received airplay from Chris Moyles, Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Lauren Laverne, Tom Robinson and Capital FM as well as being featured 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, opening the main stage at Evolution Festival and playing the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury Festival.
Koala has already been played by John Kennedy on XFM, Lauren Laverne on 6Music and Huw Stephens on Radio 1.
