Blue Velvet have quickly made a name for themselves by channelling their inner goof to shape a unique, cacophonous sound. Triple J’s Declan Byrne has described it as “the type of punk that gives you a big blast of life”.
However, after making huge waves in the local scene the band’s progression saw a transition from the elements of their emo roots, into a brighter sound which leans into indie-pop more than rock. Following this evolution in 2018, Music Feeds dubbed the band “a well-fed pokemon” after releasing EP “A Lesson In Regression”. The EP saw the band supporting the likes of Luca Brasi, Dear Seattle, Turnover (US), West Thebarton & Press Club.
Bounding into 2019 with a newfound optimism and the loose energy of single “Soggy Cereal”,the three piece won a triple j Unearthed competition to produce a music video with the National Institute of Dramatic Arts to be aired on RAGE. This honour saw the creation of the music video for “It’s All Gravy”, which is set to be premiered in October.
The PR Files had the privilege of working with Blue Velvet on the release of their single, “It’s All Gravy”.
