Canadian indie-rock band The Velveteins have just released a dreamy new track off their upcoming album, called “Midnight Surf.” The album is called Slow Wave (slated for release on May 12th) and “Midnight Surf” follows the theme of the album – slow wave sleep. The song was inspired by a conversation the band was having about deep sleep and disconnecting from reality (one of my favorite things to do). “Midnight Surf” accomplishes everything they were aiming for with its dreamy vibe. The synths, vocals, and melodies combine to make a song that definitely makes you want to drift off into dreamland. I personally really enjoyed this song because of how much it reminds me of my favorite artist, and it’s definitely one I’ll be saving for later.
The Velveteins are a group of three, with Spencer Morphy on vocals and guitar, Addison Hiller on percussion, and Dean Kheroufi. To hear more of their stuff (which I recommend you do!) check out their Bandcamp, where you can listen to their full EP, A Hot Second With The Velveteins. Following the release of Slow Wave in May, the band will be heading off on a US/Canada tour. Keep up with their social media for more announcements, and keep listening to “Midnight Surf” until the full album comes out!
