Lush Indie Melodies from Velo, New Album on the Way
Velo is indie rock with lush melodies that set the listener adrift in a psychedelic sea of strings, horns, and sun-drenched synths. Founded in late 2014, Velo is already making waves in the Austin music scene and elsewhere, including big shows that had the group sharing the bill with local standouts such as White Denim and Mother Falcon. While their music is atypical in its lack of heavy hooks, their broad sound is accessible and memorable as they strike up an orchestra of controlled chaos. Velo is currently working on a seasonally themed concept record with producer Keith Gary (Coldplay, Rufus Wainwright), which is slated for release in 2016 and is expected to feature excellent indie tracks such as those on their Spring EP from last year. Take a listen to that below, and get ready for the next entry by this intriguing act.
