Midnight Surf - The Velveteins

"Midnight Surf"

Digital Single

The Velveteins are a rock n' roll band from Edmonton
Canada
who consist of Spencer Morphy (vocals / guitar)
Addison Hillier (percussion) and Dean Kheroufi (bass). ‘Midnight Surf’ is their brand new single which is taken from their forthcoming debut album ‘Slow Wave’
and a terrifically tidy slice of psychpop pie it is
too
as you can hear at this Clash Music premiere here: www.clashmusic.com/news/track-of-the-day-303-the-velveteins

Formed by frontman Spencer
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 as they hooked up with sister label Fierce Panda Canada. 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.”

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
‘Midnight Surf’ 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. Better still
the video for ‘Midnight Surf’ features a VW campervan. This makes us weirdly excited.

There is much more lysergic loveliness to be had when the ‘Slow Wave’ album arrives on fierce panda on May 12th. Until then
remember this: The Velveteins last visited these shores last year for shoeless shows at The Great Escape in Brighton
Sound City in Liverpool and Abbie McCarthy’s Good Karma night at the Islington in Islington. Rather handily
the terrific trio from Edmonton (in Canada) based themselves in Edmonton (North London).

And you can’t get tidier than that.
