Velvoir's debut EP 'The Old World Is Dying.. Bring Out Your Dead' captures the essence of the provocative live show that the band launched onto the music scene of North East England in late February 2015. They have gigged relentlessly since.
A pleasantly disturbing and beautifully bizarre quartet, that aims to provide you with powerhouse music and ideologies that will confuse and inspire.
Velvoir are fronted by a sharp-tongued, enigmatic gender defector and driven by a powerhouse rhythm section and emblazoned by a limitless palette of guitar textures.
Their sound draws heavily on dynamic deviations, experimentation and changes in timbre to build and release tension. They draw upon the use of soundscapes to create larger concepts that enthral audiences and will leave you confused about your own existence and uncertain as to what gender, sexuality, morality and music really are. Leaving you at a rendezvous of questions and question marks.
Their performances feature speeches over instrumental pieces that serve the dual purpose of a stark reminder of our mortality and a commentary of the human condition.
Velvoir are not short of assurance but definitely lack prudence. Overtones of fornication and debauchery linger throughout their music. They titillate the neutered and provide a convulsing sexual exorcism and sensory onslaught that has to be witnessed to be believed.
Velvoir are the curious, ambiguous and absurd people that fight the very terms of existence with the conjuring of an intense, hypnotic, bizarre and feral energy. Their brand of grooving cynicism & sophisticated filth is the perfect cure for societal imposed rigor mortis.
Their self –released debut EP “The Old World Is Dying…Bring Out Your Dead” is available to listen to now on Spotify, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, Youtube with physical copies available to purchase on Bandcamp and at their shows. But be warned: this music is not for the faint of heart.
