TOP Scottish band Discopolis return to Shetland next month for a post-Christmas concert at Tingwall public hall on 27 December.
The four piece from Edinburgh that blends electronica with guitars and drums and have drawn comparisons with Hot Chip, Groove Armada and M83 were a hit when they debuted in the isles a year ago.
Despite forming just three years ago, Discopolis have already headlined the T Break stage at T in the Park and were featured by the BBC on the Introducing Stage at the Reading Festival.
Their first single Lofty Ambitions was released in 2012 to wide acclaim, and has been followed up by Committed To Sparkle Motion and Zenithobia, with one mini album released exclusively in Japan.
The band have spent this year in the studio recording their first album, but are said to have jumped at the opportunity to revisit Shetland.
Up and coming local band Autopilot will provide support along with Klub Revolution DJs.
Tickets go on sale for £10 to over 16s only from Shetland Box Office on Friday 28 November.
