Formed in 2006, The Valkarys are an Edinburgh based
psychedelic/garage band. Songwriter Scott Dunlop on lead vocals and
guitar is joined by Craig Birrell on lead guitar, Colin Brennan on bass
and Wayne Hoy on drums.
The quartet first came to the attention of UK radio stations with their
debut single ‘Candy Girl’, released in 2006 on Diffusion Records. The
single was supported by a two week UK tour that won the band a stong
fanbase through their blistering live appearances.
After relocating to London, The Valkarys released their debut album ‘The
Average Can Blind You to The Excellent’. The album won favour from
Carl Barat of The Libertines who played tracks at his London club
nights. The band were invited by Alan McGee to play the legendary Death
Disco at Notting Hill Arts Club and they also made a live appearance at
the Babyshambles club night in Camden.
‘(Just Like) Flying With God’ follows the success of
two well received EPs ‘Chloroform’ and ‘Psychodelica’, extensive UK
tours and a coveted support slot with Exit Calm.
The Valkarys recently returned to Edinburgh and are set to increase
their profile further with this highly anticipated release, their most
innovative and cutting edge collection of songs to date.
