Natural Velvet is an up and coming post punk / noise rock band from Baltimore, MD. They are known for a distinct sound that is both aggressive and catchy, playing with elements of art rock, noise, post punk and shoegaze. Conceptually, their music discusses ideas of aggression, violence, femininity, and identity, using personal narratives and dark conceptual themes found in literary and film tropes. At times confrontational, at times seductive, the music guides the listener through dark rolling narratives of identity, existence and femininity. Their new album “Mirror To Make You” moves between aggressive noise rock anti-anthems and heavy, brooding gaze/pop.
About Mayflower Madame
Mayflower Madame is a psychedelic post-punk band from Oslo, Norway. Their debut album, Observed in a Dream, was released in 2016 and received rave reviews both in Europe and North America. Through eight tracks of psych-theatrical ingenuity, shady shoegaze and 1980s dark romanticism, the album conveys the wintry feeling of their home country – icy and gloomy, haunting and majestic. Mayflower Madame will release a new EP in April before they embark on a 10-day U.S. tour starting May 1stin New York.
