Describing themselves as ‘somewhere in sludge between electronic disco and cosmic pop’ is probably as accurate as you could expect when listening to Mancunian outfit VELVET SHAKES.
This is a sound that feels nostalgic yet current, with an essence of eccentricity that charms you over instantly. As far as British bands go, it’s almost impossible not to envision these chaps becoming a household name at some point. On new single ‘Can You Do The Right Thing’ they say:
“It’s a song that’s trying to give someone close to me love and light in dark times – an opportunity for contemplation.”
