Unlike the reference of their name to the Winter Olympics, there is nothing chilly about the music which warms the room with it luscious riffs and rips with the quartet creating the sounds of good time, melodic rock’n’roll.
By way of an introduction, from their most recent EP – Carry On, which is available on bandcamp and came out earlier this month, the first of the four tracks – Superhero.
A live version of One Feather, the middle of the eleven tracks on the LP More Nothing, surfaced recently and showcases their combinations of atmospheric undercurrent, mesmeric vocal and imaginative guitar.
A trio with a fast growing fan base and a band I look forward to hearing more from in short order.
The Welsh rock trio The FLesh Velvet released the their début EP Chemical Elephant today.
The Flesh Velvet
The first of the four songs is Facedown which sets up a well put together roughly quarter of an hour of grungy rock which bleeds out of the speakers in smudgy riffs and intimates of a band who will quickly become better known.
Seasoned musicians who have spent many years driving up and down the USA playing shows, their début studio single American Kids is an opportunity for those of us from other shores to get to hear their music and the listener finds they have been missing out on an essential to the playlist.

The grungy rock’n’roll is heralded by a puddling drum-skin and slack guitar strings giving the song a contemptuous air as the lyric reflects of societal structures so wrapped up in self-serving interest that the spoon-fed propaganda of life around the world has become a rationale for division, rather than a reason for greater inclusion.
