TUNE The Velvet Hands - Games
The Velvet Hands release their second single, ‘Games’ on 8th September via Easy Action Records and across all digital formats.
The Velvet Hands are the latest band to emerge from Cornwall’s blistering garage-rock (‘Kernow Wave’ - NME) scene. The ambitious, Stones x Strokes tinged quartet formed in 2015 at Truro College (and are still in their teens) and already have released a string of standout DIY singles. The Velvet Hand’s blistering live sets, with two frontmen Dan Able and Toby Mitchell wrestling for the mic, has seen them booked for a run of big name gigs, and support slots with the likes of The Bluetones, Yak and Wild Smiles. ‘Games’ follows their #RSD2017 release ‘Sick Of Living’ and is the second single taken from their debut album, Party’s Over slated for release early in 2018.
‘Games’ was recorded at Troubadour Studios, Falmouth and produced by Ben Woods (ex -Lost Dawn/The Golden Dregs). New single ‘Games’ is filled to the brim with charisma and swagger that the band effortlessly exude. Garage-y, punky and punchy, the new single is another boisterous offering reminiscent of the best of early 2000s guitar bands and a rousing two fingered salute to freedom, youth and a defiance in doing your own thing within the confines of relationships! The Velvet Hands are Toby Mitchell, Dan Able, Louis Willbourne and Sam Hilder.
