Parisian indie rock duo, VELVET SUNSET, have released the remastered version of their single, ‘Drive Me’ and announced new 5-track EP, Love at 2 AM, now available for pre-order/add/save and out on June 17, through Golden Robot Records.
‘Drive Me’ offers a loud and dreamy but powerful shoegaze slice that feels deeply melodic and rock ‘n’ roll.
|VELVET SUNSET areinfluenced by the likes of Eels, Mazzy Stars, Led Zeppelin, The Verve, The Vines, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana and My Bloody Valentine. Their sound drifts from funk music to classic 90’s rock to shoegaze.Originally called Hopeless Kids, the band formed in February 2016 in Paris, France, changing to VELVET SUNSET along the way.|
With Max on guitar and bass, and vocalist/song writer, Eleonore, they reshaped their identity to be more west coast dream-like, and re-issued their first album in 2019, with old and new songs.
They released their second album Down the Road in June 2020, followed by a 4 song EP Goodbye Summertime in September 2020, and a single ‘Down the River’ in November 2020, which was featured on David Dean Burkhart’s YouTube Channel.
In February 2021, they covered Lana Del Rey’s ‘Video Games’ song for Valentine’s Day, and in March and April that year, new singles were released, surfing on the dream pop/shoegaze vibe, ‘Blue’ and ‘Drive Me’. Both were staff picks at Deezer, Pandora and won track of the day at Exile FM RADIO. They also appeared on TV (IDF1 France) in May 2021, to present the video clip for ‘Drive Me’.
The single, ‘Summer Night’, was then released in July 2021, with ‘I Ride All Night’ dropping in December 2021.
In February 2022, VELVET SUNSET signed on with Golden Robot Records for release of their 5 track EP, Love at 2 AM, out on 17 June, 2022.
