Nightmare Daydream“, the debut album from the formidable rock trio, The Velveteers, is the culmination of the raw power and electric voice of singer / guitarist Demi Demitro with the primal rhythm of her two drummers, Baby Pottersmith and Jonny Fig. Fused with the studio prowess of Grammy Award winning producer, Dan Auerbach, the album is a crushing combination of 70s style psychedelia and the hard rock of the California desert. “Nightmare Daydream” finds the listener transported into another world – one that’s equal parts beautiful and surreal. This kaleidoscopic fantasy is fresh from the Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville, TN.

The album is propelled by fuzz-soaked baritone guitar riffs and featuring frontwoman Demi Demitro’s snarling howls, Colorado’s Velveteers are a time-warped mix of The Runaways, Deap Vally and T.Rex. Their garage-rock-punk sound is fierce, but softened with a sprinkling of glitter and the dusty warmth of vintage amplifiers, and they’ve already supported Guns N’ Roses.

Although this trio of youthful platform-booted glam-punks have only a handful of singles and one full LP (2021’s Nightmare Daydream) to their name, their sound feels simultaneously well-trodden and entirely unique. Produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, their debut outing is peppered with moments of shiny glam, including the twinkling synth on the title-track and the Adam & The Ants-style drum wallops on Devil’s Radio.
