Slow Wave - The Velveteins

"Slow Wave"

Digital Album

The Velveteins are a rock n' roll band from Edmonton
Canada
who consist of Spencer Morphy (vocals / guitar)
Addison Hillier (percussion) and Dean Kheroufi (bass). Their brrrrrand new ‘Slow Wave’ album is a tidily slacker nine-track distillation of cosmic vibes
indierock tunes and glammed-up spirit epitomised by current single ‘Midnight Surf
’ where dreamy melodies pop up from all angles and creamy guitar solos sink like polished stones. Better still
the video for ‘Midnight Surf’ features a vivacious VW campervan
which you can see here: Wild Honey Pie

The Velveteins fell into shape in the summer of 2014 after the singer Spencer’s return from quality time spent vagabonding around Australia - and believe you us
this is very much a band made to go vagabonding. The ‘A Hot Second With The Velveteins’ EP set out their rackety indierock stall last year
and at the end of 2016 they dropped the ‘Don’t Yah Feel Better’ track to set the ‘Soft Wave’ debut album bells ringing with its punchy twangs and lurid lip-synch-tastic video.

Their slinky indiesurf tendencies have thus far spewed forth comparisons to The Kinks and The Libertines
but The Velveteins are frequently more casually weird than totally wired
and always way more welcoming
as you may expect from a band whose casual psychpop nods at The Flaming Lips
Mott The Hoople
Mac DeMarco
Temples and even occasionally a paisley Placebo.

The Velveteins are currently on a North American tour with plans a’plenty for UK shows later this year. Until then
remember this: The Velveteins last visited these shores in 2016 for shoeless shows at The Great Escape in Brighton
Sound City in Liverpool and Abbie McCarthy’s Good Karma night at the Islington in Islington. Rather handily
the terrific trio from Edmonton (in Canada) based themselves in Edmonton (North London). And you can’t get tidier than that.

“Assured
demonstrative and undisguised
The Velveteins crack out the surf-pop hooks as frontman Spencer Morphy reminds us all that everything isn’t so bad when you have a good tune in your ear and your friends close by.”
– Goldflake Paint

“A lovely mix of lo-fi vocals and indie-pop construction…’Midnight Surf’ is a slow burn of a track
so when it explodes into a storm of percussion
the catharsis is well earned.”
– Wild Honey Pie

“Sometimes there’s just no need to over-complicate things…’Slow Wave’ is a collective of unaffected rock songs that cut a little deeper than most.” – Clash Music
