The 101 are an indie-pop band from Aberdeen, Scotland. Drawing influences from the likes of Two Door Cinema Club, Bad Suns, Fickle Friends and Passion Pit, they have made a considerable name for themselves both locally and nationally since forming in 2017.
The band are already familiars to the Scottish live scene, with a sold-out headline Scottish Tour including a packed hometown show in Aberdeen’s most prestigious live music venue, The Lemon Tree. Off the back of the band’s initial success, they have also supported bands such as Fickle Friends, Fatherson and Gengahr in a host of venues across the country, with their live performance hailed as ‘bounding with a pulsing energy’.
The 101 were selected to open the main stage of Belladrum Festival in 2018, following a public vote. In December 2018, they supported Scottish legends Texas at a sold-out show in Aberdeen Music Hall. The band look optimistically into 2019, with a host of live shows and festival appearances set in place, and new music set for the Spring.
