Listen & Share – “Fire” (Live @ DR Koncerthuset):
Comprising of three young siblings, (twins, Noa (guitar) and Naomi (bass), alongside their drummer sister Nataja), the band have been creating a ripple across Denmark and beyond in the last few years with their sell-out energetic live gigs and a sound that recalls Veruca Salt, The Donnas and a dash of Sleater-Kinney in the vocal range. Velvet Volume’s debut album Look Look Look! was released back in 2017 to great critical praise in their native Denmark, featuring catchy, riff-tastic, no nonsense rock songs like “Fire,” “Leap into Heaven,” “Runnin’ Wild” and “I Think I Need You.”
Velvet Volume will be re-releasing their debut Look Look Look! this summer with Nettwerk Records, featuring alternative versions of the original tracks and brand new ones. Listen to the alternative versions of “Honey” and “I Think I Need You.”
The trio started as a band through sisterhood, mutual interests and the need to start making music. “It was very natural for us to play the rock genre, there’s something in its simplicity and brutality that made it very honest to us” they explained. “There are so many versions of that genre and things you can explore and evolve. It just really worked out for us, only to be a three piece band, limited but still fully in control of everything.”
In the last couple of years Velvet Volume have played international festivals and events including Reeperbahn, Eurosonic, London Calling, Paaspop Festival and more. They are planning to tour throughout 2019, watch this space for more news and new music.
