Velodrome Short Info

LONG BIO:
Velodrome is a queer Alt-rock act from Essex, UK.

A female voice in a male-dominated genre, her songcraft is heavily influenced by 60s and 70s pop/ rock music such as The Beach Boys,The Byrds and ELO; with a punk/grunge rock twist. Her idiosyncrasy is reminiscent of Marc Bolan or Mac Demarco; with songs about pigeons, cycling, being poor in London, owning a cat, and other suburban circumstances.

Live performances involve theatrics such as sock puppets, and a Davina McCall exercise bike.

- Tom Robinson, BBC6 Radio 23rd July 2016

- Oxjam Oxford, Oct 2016.

"Mysterious, unique, unusual, pushing the envelope, Bjork visits David Bowie who meets Gary Numan meets Madonna and the whole works bring out this montage of grooviness, whoa that be kinda interesting. Angelic vocals, strange brew here”
–Live radio commentary, Indie Music People, Jan 2017
