Velvet Shakes has recently announced the release of a brand new studio EP: ‘Mellowdrama’. This release is a quintessential collection of indie tunes , with a very unapologetic modern feel. The intro is absolutely fantastic, hitting the mark right off the bat with some exciting soundscapes that immediately set the mood. One of the best things about music is that it allows artists to really branch out if they do desire. This is definitely what happened here, and this release feels like a great example of what it means to push the boundaries to pursue true creativity and innovation.
‘Mellowdrama’ is highly recommended if you are a fan of artists such as LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, Ballpark Music, Cake, or Foster The People, only to mention a few. On one hand, the music of this EP features a unique indie-pop vibe to it, on the other, there are some juicy psychedelic influences, making the formula more unique and outstanding.
The lyrics are just as incisive and powerful, immediately setting the bar higher by matching the quality of the music with some immersive storytelling chops.
