The Velvet Hands

This is a track from the debut single by The Velvet Hands which will be released on 5th October. They consist of Toby Mitchell (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Dan Able (Lead Guitar/Vocals) and have been knocking around since last year. From their website...

The Velvet Hands are Toby Mitchell and Dan Able accompanied by various of their compadres from the St Austell and Falmouth musiverse. The youthful scallywag duo first put pen to paper and plectrum to string in 2014 and The Velvet Hands were born. Brought up on a diet of Stones, Strokes, Beatles, Stone Roses and The Clash, the singer songwriter route was never going to be an option.
Spotted early in their career, The NME Radar section described them as "Full of bolchy spirit". South West's music Svengali Lee Trewhela described them as being; "in the grand tradition of great British bands like The Libertines and The Buzzcocks".
The band have performed at the Boardmasters Festival, Tall Ships Festival, Looe Festival and have supported Wild Smiles, Lost Dawn, Saturday Sun and The Bluetones. They have also recorded a session for BBC Introducing.
Their debut single release was recorded at Troubadour Studios in Falmouth, twiddling the knobs were Ben Woods from Lost Dawn and Sam Stacpoole from The Black Tambourines. The single will be released by Jam X Records on Oct 9th 2015. It will be available as a free download and also via the usual digital outlets. A CD single,( 100 copies only), will be available through Bandcamp and at gigs.
