Absolutely loving, INTO LIGHT, the debut single by VELVET TIDES; Probably my favourite release of the year so far. It’s melodic guitars and hazy, shoegaze vocals send me off into a liquid sunshine trance. With an uplifting chorus and post-punk qualities, their sound is reminiscent of bands including The Cure, Ride, The War on Drugs and Slowdive.
Hailing from Birmingham the twenty-two-year olds, formed in 2018 and are taking their local scene by storm. With accolades from BBC Introducing and Primal Music plus given Record of the Day by This Feeling, Velvet Tides are an exciting new band to watch this year.
Be sure to catch them live at The Actress & Bishop, Birmingham on 17/05/19 for their debut This Feeling show.
