Turn Up The Volume featured Welsh duo RUBBER VELVET several times before
and will keep on champion them in the future as long as they come up with
affecting dream-pop beauties. What they actually just did again with brand
new piece MISTAKES.
It’s a gripping and moony lullaby-like melody with ardent duo harmonies,
glimmering Kurt Vile guitars, frolic piano touches, and a close your eyes and
float away chorus. Introspective, contemplative, and self-remedying. Greatly
After releasing two EPs, Rest In Vain last year and Little Wild early this year and
dreamy March single MINE TO OWN thrilling Welsh duo RUBBER VELVET returned
with a new addictive banger called ‘SONIC DIFFERNCE‘. It’s a guitar loaded stonker
that glows and flames resistlessly and when the infectious chorus kicks in you know
this is a five-star score you’ll have on repeat for a while.
Relaxing reveries for the laziest day of the week…

Only formed last year this Welsh duo RUBBER VELVET made a considerable impression this summer with their emotive 5-track debut EP Rest In Vainand are now back with a
fresh two-track EP. LITTLE WILD and DUMB INTELLECT deal with personal, mixed up sentiments. Both wistful songs are reflective musings unveiling a melancholic sensibility strengthened by guitars that gently weep and the timbre of the crestfallen vocals. These are dimmed emotions matching these grey winter days. Catch the mood right here…
Sound: “A unique take on British rock music, incorporating elements from
the infamous ‘Madchester’ scene, London’s punk movement, electro-rock,
Britpop, shoegaze and American garage havoc.”
Influences:The Stone Roses, Pavement, Oasis, , Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr,
The Cure, Jesus and The Mary Chain, Sticky Fingers, The National, Basement,
Spacemen 3, Television, Tame Impala, Gorillaz and Bodega
Score: Here’s a highly motivated and inspiring 2-piece hitting bullseye with their
striking debut EP, entitled Rest In Vain. An overall imposing firstborn notable for
its darksome sentiments, yet infectiously groovy tone. Here are five songs of which
each one can stand on its own. Different moods, different colors, different beats.
From the gloomy rocker On The Run, mixing Sonic Youth and Interpol to – Turn Up
The Volume’s favorite cut – the reflective swagger of the title track injected with poetic The Cure guitars. Opener Ace Ventura is family of the latter, sounding – thankfully – nothing like Jim Carrey and impressive closer Deja Vu feels like a slo-mo The Jesus
and Mary Chain momentum on their way back from a nightmarish trip and Dry
Up Your Mind‘s mid-tempo bass timbre feels claustrophobic. Hats off! Top debut!
This fresh duo will draw, unquestionably, your sonic attention. Discover them here…
