Saturday night is at Jetty Bar in Glenelg, and joining The Velvets will be the sex goddess-fronted Imogen Brave. With both shows being free of charge, a couple of nights of rock and roll mayhem shall ensue.
Driving guitar riffs, howling vocals and beastly drums is what to expect from The Velvets. Relatively new to the music scene, the lads have hit the ground running. They first released a double-A side in late 2012 (mixed and produced by The Delta Riggs' guitarist Alex Markwell) that was picked up by community radio stations such as PBS, RRR, SYN, 3MDR and many more. Their true strength is in their live performance, which is proven in the collection of shows and supports under their belt. The Velvets have been heard supporting some great acts such as Georgia Fair, Kashmere Club and The Harlots, to name a few.
The 'Cold Souls & Heartless Dolls' EP was recorded at Collarts in South Melbourne where two of the lads attend university. This environment, coupled with creative input from Brett Woolford, gave the sound of this record a modern edge, whilst still being gritty enough to capture the frenetic live energy of the band.
With the release of the 'Cold Souls & Heartless Dolls' EP, The Velvets will get you groovin' and keep you movin' with their unique brand of rock and roll.
The EP can be heard here and streamed on Spotify. Worldsend is at 208 Hindley St, Adelaide. Jetty Bar is at 28 Jetty Road, Glenelg.
