Bio

Sydney Indie-Punks Blue Velvet have quickly made a name for themselves amongst the rowdy.

Since forming in 2016, the four piece has channeled their inner rascal to shape a unique, cacophonous sound and live show, placing them as an act you can't miss.

Supporting the likes of Turnover (US), Trophy Eyes & Moose Blood (UK) over the last year, 2018 now sees Blue Velvet moving to their next chapter with the release of their new single 'Stay Inside All Day' - an ode to procrastination. Their next EP will be released later in 2018.

"It's downbeat cbf lyrics with upbeat everything else...You'll be singing along by the end for sure!" Declan Byrne - Triple J

"It’s the kind of tune that grabs you, shakes you and will have you singing along almost instantly..." Lifewithoutandy

"Blue Velvet have just unleashed a brand new slacker anthem in Stay Inside All Day, a rumbling examination of fighting procastination as poorly as possible." Pilerats

Touring extensively throughout the year, Blue Velvet aren't a band you want to miss.

This is the kind of punk band who're rough and edgy enough to fall in love with but who also seem grounded and genial enough to take home to mum.

Oh man, I feel like you've just read my mind. This is exactly how I feel today. But this, is relatable, carries some killer sing-a-long moments and honesty. I love that it builds energy and how uplifting this track sounds, given the lyrics. It makes you feel like everything is going to be OKAY and if you need one of those days to stay in bed, well that's okay too! What a grower! So in...

+1 on Claire, very Luca meets Smithies. Doesn't beat around the bush, this one!
