THE VELVETEINS Take You On A Blissful Psysch Trip With ‘DECLARATIONS OF THE 3AM FREEWAY’
New striking strokes
6 June 2023
Band: THE VELVETEINS
Who: A pop-rock collective soaked in the bright psychedelia of the 1960’s and
dipped in the indie rock explosion of the new millennium. They’re best described
as a bridge between the two. Inspired after living out of a camper van on the beaches
of Australia for a year, frontman Spencer Morphy returned to his home country Canada
and started the band with co-songwriter Addison Hiller in 2014.
New single: DECLARATIONS OF THE 3AM FREEWAY
The title track of their upcoming sophomore album, that envelops the feeling
of road-tripping at dusk in the heat of summer, when there’s no one else on the
freeway and it’s just you and your thoughts.
Morphy: “The lyrics are yearning, and more insightful than our past works.
That longing sentiment is relayed perfectly on the title track “It all begins right
now / it all begins in the car on the freeway.”
TUTV: Psychedelic guitar pop splendour is what you get here in full glory.
Declarations of the 3am Freeway grabs your aural attention from the kick-off
with its blissful and dream-inducing imagery, its magnetic melodiousness, its
subtle The Edge-like riff (think With Or Without You) and bouncy bass lines, its
delightful chorus, and its featherlight vocals.
And it’s a spacey outro that leads to the abrupt end of a nothing less than
a magical trip in slow-motion on your favorite freeway, while dreaming awake
about sunlit twilights all summer long.
Start the engine.
