Hello Indie Pulse!
For us, “Velvet” is a bridge between the dense, cosmic psychedelia of our 2016 album As Far As Gardens Go and a newer sound we’ve found ourselves settling into since: a more hushed, melancholy sound tightly anchored to the groove.
If As Far As Gardens Go found us hurtling through wormholes and electrical storms in space, then “Velvet” more likely has the four us playing in a smoky lounge with soft pink lighting, dark vines creeping in around us, and plush furniture of an otherworldly material.
To help us achieve this vision, we enlisted Gabriel Garcia to bring his formidable alto saxophone chops to bear, quite literally bridging the gentle nylon guitar of the verse with the warped arps of the choruses. “Dance with me,” Brian sings, and we hope you will. Otherwise, levitate.
Thanks for checking it out and we appreciate you sharing!
Stay tuned –– we’ve been working on new music that we’re really excited to share.
