The Boston Phoenix was nice enough to ask us about the fluxus-inspired packaging we created for the Skeleton House / Rose Wave 7″ Single.
Read the Q&A and check out the great photos they took!
You can now stream Skeleton House b/w Rose Wave and purchase either the physical or digital 7″ at our Bandcamp page, here.
Here’s also a quick roundup of the nice things people have written about the new 7″:
Thanks so much to everyone who came out last Friday – we had a blast! Check out the Tour page to see where we’ll be next.
Pre-orders are open for our new 7″ single, Skeleton House / Rose Wave, coming out in a week or so. Get there first by ordering right now!
The vinyl comes in a handmade, Fluxus-inspired kit including talismans, poems, and instructions for entering the Skeleton House, which the band imagines as a repository for a person’s dreams and a place to exorcise demons.
Pre-order includes digital album in your choice of MP3 320, FLAC, or other formats. A link to the download will be emailed to you the moment it’s released.
Nice words from the lovely peeps at Daykamp Music.
“When I caught Velah at TT’s last month, I was impressed with how well-formed the young band’s sound was. I knew their lineage. I appreciate the work the band’s members did in Static Of The Gods and The Acre. I had high hopes. I also know a band’s early work can be a bit disjointed as they find their legs. Black Olympia flies that notion out the window on a breeze of shimmering guitars.
“Wanderlust” opens this EP with an elevated level of urgency. The immediacy of the song defies the shoegaze tag that is often placed on the band. We’re introduced to the vocal interplay, intertwining guitar parts and clockwork drumming that will define these recordings. Each song steps out from there. The chorus to “Calm Down” is pure pop. The EP’s title track is majestic. “Glass Heart” threatens to drown in its own delay-soaked layers before breaking the surface in a triumphant crescendo. It all works. Let’s see where Velah goes next.”
Our late summer single will be born in style with an official coming out party at the Pill on August 24th.
Admission is a steal at just $5 to check out a special Velah set and attend Boston’s very best modern indie dance party.
A little while back we played the Deep Heaven Now fest in Somerville. Foundwaves took some phenomenal photos for your viewing pleasure, here:
