With various comparisons to an “early Rolling Stones”, brand new Cornwall / London rockers, The Velvet Hands are, according to feedback “a wonderful mess, a soundtrack for demolition.” (Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music) with “snarling vocals and intense riffs” (GigSlutz) that is “full of bolshy spirit.” (NME). Very much looking and sounding the part, they encompass elements of The Strokes in their Garage rock n roll story telling. There is swagger in their tunes but sufficient depth in what they're saying to be taken seriously. They may be fresh faced, but these are not nursery rhymes.
