Band of the Day

The OK Social Club

Ring in 2014 with massively addictive indie rock from Edinburgh, Scotland
Maybe I’m just out of touch, maybe we’ve just grown apart. I used to finish your sentences, now I don’t know what you’re on about.
lyrics from The Late 90's

The OK Social Club – Raff, Chris, Gordy and Jordan – have only been playing together since summer 2011 but are fast becoming one of the hottest young bands to appear from Edinburgh’s underground music scene. They have a massive mix of influences from 50′s and 60′s girl groups to 70′s punk Rock and Roll: it’s edgy, melodic and doesn’t take itself too seriously much like the 4 band members who met while playing on the same bill in Stirling in two different bands.

Their first three singles 'The Shape of Things to Come', 'The Late 90's' and 'Gezellig' were released on Platform Records in 2012, and featured on various TV and Radio shows including: MTV Rocks, The Sunday Brunch playlist on Channel 4, Hollyoaks, 'New Girl' sitcom trailer on E4 and Sky Sports-Soccer AM as well as being record of the month on BBC's The Janice Forsyth show and Steve Lamacq's Rebel playlist winner on BBC Radio 6.

The OK Social Club rounded off 2012 playing at Edinburgh's Hogmanay street party alongside The Maccabees, The View, Reverend and The Makers and Headliners Simple Minds.

In February 2013 they released their highly anticipated debut album "Nothing in Common". In March they won BEST LIVE ACT at The Scottish Alternative Music Awards, where they performed live, closing the show.

In summer 2013 they headlined a show at King Tuts and played at Wickerman and goNorth festivals, performing some of their new material for the first time.

They are currently working on their second album which is due for release in 2014.
