Cornwall/London four piece The Velvet Hands are a band we’ve been fans of for a while now. Previous releases I Don’t Mind and Sick Of Living have set high standards for the band, earning them support from the likes of BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 1; as well as featuring on everyone’s guilty pleasure, Made In Chelsea. Released today, Games is the latest single from the four, taken from their upcoming album.
As we’ve come to expect from The Velvet Hands, Games is packed with bolshy, energetic confidence. Packed with a sound along the lines of The Strokes, every second of the track is simply addictive. From it’s fast paced, classic rock riffs to it’s thriving drum beats, Games is instantly enjoyable. Blistering duel vocals from Toby Mitchell and Dan Able are the finishing touch to what is nothing short of a quality rock track more than capable of sending The Velvet Hands on their way to a successful career.
