Since forming in January 2013, Model Aeroplanes have released a string of singles that have seen them work their way into the nation’s pop psyche. After only eight gigs the band were hand picked to perform at their first T in the Park in 2013 and have since been on an epic rollercoaster of tours and festivals, gaining fans from around the country very early on in their career.
The band have been on a journey that has seen them support some of their favourite bands such as The View, Twin Atlantic, Little Comets and hotly tipped newcomer Saint Raymond as well as their own sold out headline tour. The band have also been busy at other festivals winning crowds over at places like Dot-to-Dot, The Great Escape and Live at Leeds.
Having recently found a new home at Island Records, the rest of 2015 holds big things for Model Aeroplanes with a pile of further festival appearances as well as the release of their debut EP.
Talking of their signing, helped along by their discovery by the Spinnup platform, the band said :
“We are really excited to be one of the first UK acts to have the opportunity to utilise the new Spinnup platform. Spinnup gave the band the chance to be recognised by Island Records’ great A&R team and evetually led to us finding our new home within the label. We feel that Spinnup is going to give acts a chance to reach out to contacts in the indsutry that they may not have the opportunity to otherwise. We’re really happy to have been a part of Spinnup and work with such a great team.”
