Welcome to Velveteen Pink
From the late-night, rump-shaking, house-quaking, butter-basting dance floors of the Athens, GA underground after-party scene comes the neon-jumpsuited purveyors of the freshest new sounds in proto-electrofunk, the one and only Velveteen Pink. On their self titled debut album VP pushes listeners to the very limits of poptimism, with honey-dripping hooks that will melt your heart, and titanic explosions of gui/keytar solos that will melt your face. Drawing on an impressive reservoir of influences ranging from cheesy 70s AM radio and 80s R&B and rock to early aughts-era EDM; Velveteen Pink’s sound is as ambitious as it is original. Progressive Funk? R&B? Pop? We don’t care which section of the record store you put it in, just make sure people know that it’s for shakin’ asses.
