The Valkarys Q&A

Your name: 
Scott Dunlop.

Where are you from? 
Edinburgh, Scotland.

Name of band:
The Valkarys.

Who else is in your band?
Sarah Ross, Craig Birrell, Kier Lavin, Colin Brennan and Wayne Hoy.

How would you describe yourselves and your music?
We play psychedelic music, and garage music. Sometimes far-out psych and sometimes more poppy. 

Who are your main influences musically?
The Beatles, Velvet Underground, The Byrds, Brian Jonestown Massacre. 

What do you hope to achieve in music?
I just want to keep making records. We have four records out now - two albums and two EPs. I want to create a large body of work that stands up against all my heroes. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
There's been a lot of highlights, too many to mention, but the most important one is we are still creating new music and releasing records. We have never had anyone help us out or give us money etc, but we have released four records and play shows. That's the highlight for me. 

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Nothing. Even the bad shows or the bad times are a learning curve. 

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Storyteller. It's a cool song, psychedelic, with a great groove to it. 

Where can we listen to it? 

Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your music that I forgot to ask?
No, I just want to say thank you for your interest in the band. I appreciate it. Peace and love.
