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 touts and a coveted support slot with Exit Calm.
The Valkarys have recently returned to Edinburgh are set to increase their profile further with this highly anticipated release, their most innovative and cutting edge collection of songs to date.
