Right now, it’s safe to say we all need a little pick me up - well, luckily for us VELVET SHAKES are back on the scene to bring the party to us this winter. Their recent release ‘World’ is a sensational new single set to provide the vibes to even the dullest of winters possible. VELVET SHAKES are the electro-pop pioneers bearing the torch on the DIY musical revolution as they offer up hit after hit with their recent collection of singles. With over thirty-four thousand streams on Spotify alone, it’s evident that this musical magic isn’t going unnoticed. The group making boy bands trendy again is made up of Josh Bithell, Scott Hill, Louie Donnelly and Anthony Hickey.
‘World’ is the explosive, synth-soaked single storming our daily soundtracks this Winter. The track boasts an impressive manipulation of synth, creating striking melodies and a stable bed for vocalists Josh Bithell’s to sail over. The ‘80s house influence is evident in the driving drum line that propels the track into a whole new realm of funk. The inspiration for ‘World’ was born out on one phrase overheard by the group, “walking around the world”. The group says about the wholesome narrative:
“World is about a sort of conscious awakening and the appreciation of our planetary home that came with that,”
Whatever inspired this vivacious track we couldn’t be more grateful. Whilst right now the option go and “walk” around the world might not be an option, I’d highly recommend stepping into VELVET SHAKES’ magical music planet through your headphones with their incredible new single ‘World’.
