Some Velvet Morning may be new to you, but they’re already familiar to Nancy Sinatra, Paolo Nutini and Razorlight, to mention just a few celebrity names that orbit their world.
The famous daughter of the even more legendary 20th century swinger gave them her nod of approval when she heard that they were named after her best-known collaboration with Lee Hazlewood on the beautiful song Some Velvet Morning (‘she was flattered’).
The band first came to attention of the music press with their 2007 debut album, ‘Silence Will Kill You’. The album comprised of some punchy, potent pop-rock, produced by Grammy Award winner Rik Simpson (who notably worked on Coldplay’s Viva La Vida album with Brian Eno) and Mike Pelanconi (Lily Allen, Graham Coxon).
The band’s new album, ‘Allies,’ is set for release in Europe in May 2013. The lead single ‘How To Start A Revolution,’ will be appearing in two films this year. In the new Irvine Welsh movie ‘Filth, starring James McAvoy and as the main titles for ‘Two Days In the Smoke,’ starring Matt Di’Angelo from BBC’s ‘Hustle’.
