"Rhythmic, unexpected, erotic, subjective
and of course sarcastic..."
Synth-punk | electro-rock, duo with Su Eko on Vocals/Bass and Harris Iveson on Guitar/Synths.
Velvet Kills is a thoroughly modern and urban endeavour, speaking directly to today’s society - with all its anxieties, addictions, destructiveness as well as exhilaration. You'll find in their driving beats raw emotion, and a terrific darkness. The sound is complex, almost abstract - a combination of cinematic textures, gritty guitars, and potent vocals.
"In The Gold Mine"
Velvet Kills Premier New Music Video
Pushing us down into the depths of a mine shaft, with its dusky synths, scratchy guitars, and harsh and grinding beats, the song burns with the pale fire of
Su Eko’s lyrics that mirror the Jungian shadows of a world placed under the sins of the unconscious mind, watching the vultures of our economic system descend, with lies whispered into our ears.

Awakening the labyrinth of our minds to be freed from hate, greed and ego this album brings us to the reality of our actual society. The messages come coded in sarcasm, euphemism, hyperbole and irony where the two dig into the files of a lonely civilization and question the purpose of life vs government structures where we "Cash and Move" and where love is forgotten.Inside the “Noise” of the apocalyptic war a “Hangover Calling” to the universe to rise humans to a higher state of positive vibration.“The Key” is Love.

Life in a fast paced society... where romance is lost in time..."Bitch Face” tells the story of a woman craving to nurture her senses.
A metaphor for her thoughts and desires, this song speaks of liberation, with just a drop of sarcasm and a pinch of irony added into the mix.
