"Art-pop affectionados VOKXEN's rise across the capital has been swift and clinical. The four girls with a love of melody, synths and all things shimmering emerged last year, dancing onto Cool FM's airwaves and top line-ups across Belfast with such ease you'd wonder if they'd planned it for years...
If the aim of 'Somebody' was to break into Belfast's tightly knit pop scene on the first attempt, it's mission accomplished." - ENCORE NI
All-female Indie/pop foursome, VOKXEN, declared as one of NI's most promising acts (CultureNI) were recently selected as a 'Scratch' 2016 act for prestigious artist development programme 'Scratch My Progress' with Oh Yeah Music Centre. As heard on BBC Introducing, Belfast's Underground Radio & Blast 106FM, debut track 'Somebody’ was released in Summer 2015. The track quickly received airplay from top commercial Northern Irish radio station, Cool FM and was played on Stuart Robinson's 'Cool Saturday Show'.
VOKXEN were then selected to play ‘Pride: Party in The Square’, sharing the bill with both international & top local acts, performing to thousands of concert goers in a 'full-capacity' Custom House Square. Other notable gigs and appearances include venues such as Belfast City Hall, Stormont Alternative Ms Ulster and a 'sold out' Debut EP launch boat party on The Belfast Barge. More recently, VOKXEN headlined 'GIFTED' in Belfast's Empire Music Hall and have a number of upcoming festivals & shows including Stendhal Festival and Sunflowerfest.
"Always love to support up and coming new talent on the Cool Saturday Show... Look out for them." Cool FM
