VELVET SHAKES are our Artist Of The Week! This Manchester band is a “kaleidoscopic cosmic collision” of sound that transcends genres. Indie guitar melodies swirl with sweeping psychedelic synths, while a healthy injection of club-inflected disco flavour keeps things upbeat and alluringly danceable. Rock-solid grooves that sit right in the pocket and lovely vocal harmonies round out an interstellar package that cries out to be played at house parties and rooftop shindigs as the sun sets. Why not give our favourite track “The Place That You Belong” a spin next time a party needs a shot of infectious energy?
