VELVET STARLINGS – ” Technicolour Shakedown “

Posted: February 15, 2022 in MUSIC

Hailing from Los Angeles and the beach cities of Southern California, Velvet Starlings was founded by guitarist and organ player Christian Gisborne. And while known for his concert attendance record and impressive Lego collection, it is his musical prowess as a performer, writer, recording artist and producer that is putting him on the map. Gisborne not only tracked all of the instruments, but also engineered, mixed and produced “Technicolour Shakedown” which was originally released in August 2021 and is finally available on vinyl. While it reflects influences that range from early Jack White, to Thee Oh Sees and Arctic Monkeys, the album showcases Velvet Starlings own take on neo-60’s-garage – best described as “beach-fuzz-psych” with a big cheeky nod to the UK Invasion. 

Velvet Starlings brand new single “Can’t Control” The youthful music video was shot in Dunfermline Scotland, featuring the artistic dynamo Martin Hughes and was Directed by his bother singer songwriter Angelica Mode ( Brian Hughes), who we’ve shared the stage with on the Edinburgh indie scene.

“in the doom and gloom of Covid I found myself reminiscing all the time about the days when we would wait in line for hours to see our favourite bands.  The songs on the first album reflect everything I felt I was missing out on. I think a Rock n Roll renaissance is coming after this crazy year of lock down.  We’re hoping that a full front-to-back of “Technicolour Shakedown” will evoke the feeling you get at a rock n roll house party – wherever the listener may find themselves.” (Christian Gisborne)

Technicolour Shakedown is now available on vinyl via Kitten Robot Records
