“She Said” is an upbeat single released by Velvet Starlings, with a lego video that reminds us of both of childhood and quarantine activities. The music is fun and punky. It brings us back to the warp tour days of the early 00’s, alongside more classic tunes that remind us of The White Stripes. Let us know what your thoughts are on their musical style, we’re digging it as it brings us nostalgia. Not to mention, that the tunes are upbeat and fun which is exactly what we need to kick off a Monday.

The track is taken from Velvet Starlings’ forthcoming debut album, Technicolour Shakedown, out September 29 via Sound x 3 Records, with the vinyl release by Kitten Robot in the US. Like the album the song highlights their ability to fuse 60s garage rock ‘n’ roll into a sound that is all their own. The band is led by Christian Gisborne and he shares, “The song combines our love of 60’s Doors signature style organ riffs. But quickly takes a left turn into a frenzied ‘beach fuzz’ garage punk territory. It tells a tale of instant attraction, coupled with the excitement, energy and adrenaline of ‘cutting a rug’ on the sweaty dance floor of a California house party going til dawn and watching sun coming up across the bay.” The video is directed by Christian Gisborne, a fun look into all the creative avenues this band is taking it’s listeners on.
