Velvet Kills, longtime Infidel Netwerk affiliates, have been working hard on getting their new album out to you. But they need some funding to help get it off the floor. From the band themselves:
"Velvet Kills is a thoroughly modern and urban endeavour, speaking directly to today’s society - with all its anxiety, addictions, and destructiveness as well as it's exhilaration. You'll find in their driving beats raw emotion, and a terrific darkness. The sound is complex, almost abstract - a combination of cinematic textures, gritty guitars, and potent vocals. Velvet Kills is Susana Santos on vocals/bass and Harris Iveson on guitar/synths.
The group's music and attitude have been shaped by the influences of bands and artists such as Alan Vega, Sisters of Mercy, Malaria!, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, The Clash, and Lou Reed.
Velvet Kills came to life in 2015 when the two members met on a trance dance floor and found their mutual love for rock n' roll, synths and beige Steinberger guitars. Velvet Kills has since developed a steady following, leading to their debut EP - Memory released in March 2016 and a European Tour in Fall and Winter 2016 marking the end of their Memory era and moving them into their next phase.
In early December 2016 the music video Fill Me Out was premiered by Darkitalia - Webzine introducing the new LP - Mischievous Urges, to be released in Spring 2017 with Oráculo Records.
Two of Velvet Kills music videos, Red Shoes directed by Ron Goldstein and Fill Me Out directed by Art Mistake, were selected for the 3rd Edition of MUVI - International Festival of Music and Cinema and presented in the Cinema São Jorge of Lisbon in December 2016."
