The Velveteins - Midnight Surf
The Velveteins are set to release their latest psychpop angst number ‘Midnight Surf’. Think Serge Gainsbourg’s Je T’aime in garage form, sung by Marc Bolan !!
Their press release amusingly states: Formed by frontman Spencer, The Velveteins fell into shape in the summer of 2014 after the singer’s return to Canada from some 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 punchy, precise ‘Don’t Yah Feel Better’ track to set the debut album bells ringing and get Goldflake Paint enthusing, as they said thusly: “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…” So there you have it.
Check out ‘Midnight Surf’ below – it is actually very good, and likely to embed itself in your subconscious for some time.
