The View on Scottish National TV

The View looks good from here

Many "overnight successes" are in fact the result of years of slogging around the local circuits and playing to empty bars and clubs before finally being discovered. Dundee band The View are the exception to the rule.
Formed little over a year ago they have crashed into the top 20 with their debut single Wasted Little DJs.

Proud Dundonian's, The View hail from the Dryburgh area of the city and take their name from their local the Baywiew. Although the four members are barely drinking age they have lived and seen enough to serve up a slice of rock 'n' roll that other bands take years to produce.

With a debut album produced by Owen Morris of Oasis' Definitely Maybe fame already in the can and midway through a sold out tour, the youngsters might just wonder if things can possibly get any better.
stv caught up with the band in Cardiff after a storming set at the Belladrum festival.

They told us: We enjoyed The Belladrum festival, it's a nice wee festival. A lot of people said that it was a tough crowd to please, but I think we did ok.

The View's debut album is out in January and they are on tour in Scotland next month.
