velveteen – is an app about the indieband of the same name from Frankfurt in Germany. Their densely packed sound always conveys a feeling that something redeeming or sinister is about to happen. Atmospheric songs and laconic vocals form an impressive alliance in which quiet moments erupt into forceful indie guitar noise and little anecdotes about everyday things tell us about failure and hope. Initially sharing a passion for bands like 'My Bloody Valentine' and 'Ride', the band has since recorded distiguished albums in DIY fashion. An enthusiasm for subtle experiments without becoming overambitious can be heard in their music.
This app contains sample tracks of all four albums, photos, videos, info, an extensive interview about the new album and a link to velveteen's website.
