I must admit when I saw the name of this band in my inbox I thought this may just be another indie band of which there are hundreds out there these days. I am very happy to say I was completely and utterly wrong!!!
Any followers of this blog may have remembered one of my first posts was of a band called Palladium. Since then, the band has split to pursue individual projects. But, recently I have managed to track down their ex lead singer, Pete Cochrane, who along with Sie Medway-Smith has set up a new band called Velo. This band exudes uniqueness, with an electric feel to their music. They have a few songs posted on Myspace which you can listen to here. I reccomend Perfect Twisted world which has an electronic, 80s, uplifting feel to it, and for those fans of Palladium I would definitely reccomend White Nights which has an air of Peter’s previous band. These guys are set for big things with their brilliant lyrics and catchy melodies, these are songs which could easily exceed former projects
Although not on tour at present, they are in rehearsals for their debut performance at one of London’s biggest club nights in February. If this was not enough for the London lads they have recently completed a remix for Ellie Goulding, another rising star who came out top in BBC sound of 2010. Surely, with these starter markers for their career they can only excel, only time will tell! In the meantime, watch this space!!!
