Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LONDON - Aug 23, 2016 - “Upbeat and anthemic, Brighton’s Vellocet subscribe to a brand of pop-rock that’s bold, brash and difficult to ignore.”
Brighton-based Alt Rock band Vellocet are releasing their debut single and video, ‘Better Days’, on the 16th of September. Vellocet, who formed just over a year ago are shaping up to be quite the live force, they’ve played headline gigs up and down the South Coast as well as supporting the likes of Fatherson and Boy Jumps Ship at prestigious venues which include the O2 Academy Islington and Concorde 2 in Brighton.
‘Better Days’ is an upbeat and anthemic slice of pop-rock, which kicks off in a brash and bouncy fashion with Jordan Bremble’s catchy, uplifting guitar riff and Dan Holt’s energetic drum work. Lead singer Neil McMillan has a soulful throaty growl which is a perfect fit with his gruffly sentimental and nostalgic lyrics which evoke the yearning romantic spirit of The Gaslight Anthem as they weave a tale of loves lost and couples grown apart with lines like ‘Streets aren’t what they used to be/they’ve got cracks in the memories/I guess it’s time to be moving on.’
The band have a powerful and unique sound with a diverse collection of influences that really shine through, including the mature dynamic punk rock of Frank Turner. ‘Better Days’ was recorded at Metway Studios (Nick Cave, Levellers) with producer, Ian Sadler. The video for the track was directed by Sam Shaw (Raya Rose, Josh Mac) and sees the band perform in St. Michael’s church in Brighton, a local landmark which dates back to Victorian times. Since forming, Vellocet have also gained support from Melita Dennett over at BBC Introducing South and airplay on Southwaves Radio, an acoustic live session and interview on Phoenix FM not to mention their track being selected to air on British Airways Radio flights.
The band are hitting the live circuit throughout the summer and you can catch them on their upcoming mini tour which will be taking place from the 1st week of August and concluding with the official release event for ‘Better Days’ underneath Brighton Railway Station at The Green Door Store on the 19th of September.
