Pocket Venus are a rock band from Conwy in North Wales. The band's sound has been difficult to pigeonhole as they have such a diverse range of sounds, however, many critics have compared the group to classic rock bands such as Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin for the progressive rock dynamics and comparisons of the precise orchestration and song writing techniques of bands like The Verve and Spiritualized were also abundant in reviews.
The band formed in 1998 and toured the UK extensively, hailed as the one of the best unsigned bands of their time they achieved critical acclaim both in the UK and abroad. Pocket Venus split in 2003 during negotiations with major record labels, the band cited musical and personal differences as the reason for the break up. In 2008 Pocket Venus announced they were reforming. 2011 promises to be a big year for the band with support slots already confirmed with Ultrasound in London.
