The Velveteins Release Debut Record Slow Wave!
Posted: 2017-05-12 00:00:00


The Velveteins are stoked to announce the release of their hugely anticipated debut album entitled ’Slow Wave’ on Fierce Panda Canada. Available worldwide on all your favourite music platforms TODAY!

Formed by frontman Spencer Morphy, The Velveteins fell into shape in the summer of 2014 after the singer’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 punchy, precise ‘Don’t Yah Feel Better’, followed by the dreamlike "Midnight Surf" in early 2017 to set the debut album bells ringing: 

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.

"If their first single is any indication, we can expect an album filled with earworm-worthy melodies and psychedelic grooves that stick to your bones."
- CBC Music

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. Indeed, the entire album is a slacker-glam-pop anthem for the whacked-out generation, nodding vacantly at Mott The Hoople and The Flaming Lips with dreamy melodies popping up from all angles and creamy guitar solos sinking like polished stones.
