Glasvegas perform live at Rock City, Main Hall, Nottingham

Glasvegas are an alternative/shoegazing band which formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 2003. Their music is influenced by artists such as Wall of Sound producer Phil Spector and other, more recent, bands which share that same aesthetic such as My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus and Mary Chain. The band received universal critical acclaim for their debut album Glasvegas which was released in September 2008, reaching No. 2 in the UK Album Charts. Their debut album was also nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in September 2009, a year after the release of the album.
