VELVET ATTACK are a 60s 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.
On the one hand side, they stick to the classic combination of jangling Rickenbacker sounds with fine vocal harmonies as presented by groups from the past, let’s say from THE BYRDS to THE BANGLES but on the other hand side their rock attitude is rooted with punk prototypes to psychedelic from the sixties.
After their fabulous 7” “Human Doll” we can now experience another full‐length velvet attack listening to their brand‐new debut album “Visions From Inner Space” – and what a fantastic musical attack that is! If it’s softer pieces like the folky psychedelic “Double Cylinder Man” and “I Cannot See A Forest Without Trees” or wilder rockin’ tunes like “Daughter of the Sun” and catchy pop‐beat‐tunes like “You Know Everything Better” and “Drinkin’ Water Prayin’ Wine” – this album is definitely top shelf!
