VELVET ATTACK are a 60’s based indie-rock-group from Dortmund, Germany formed in November
2018 to play velvet popsike melodies boosted by prog/kraut educated guitar attacks. The five boys
have been part of different musical projects (Jelly Planet, Damo Suzuki Band, Astra Kid, The Cheeks),
which is reflected in their multi-layered, refined sound.
“(She’s A) Human Doll” is their very first release, an incredible 7” limited to 300 copies only.
The melodic title song is an absolutely infectious, catchy tune with a strong beat and rocking guitar
that display singer Kono’s cool vocals, emphasised by harmonic background vocals.
The B-side “Dr. Jesus Gonzalez” sounds, however no less exciting – beautiful, psychedelic guitars and
dreamy vocal harmonies mark a brilliant flipside to the hit-like title-song.
These boys just nail that perfect late 60’s British freakbeat-sound and transfer it right to the year
2021! These two songs are an exciting foretaste to hopefully many more velvet attacks in the future!
