Velvet Kills Short Info

Rhythmic, unexpected, erotic and sarcastic.
Synth-punk/Psychedelic duo with Susana Santos 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.

The group's music and attitude, both have been shaped by the influences of bands and artists like Sisters of Mercy, Alan Vega, Malaria!, Kas Product, Iggy Pop, The Clash, and Lou Reed.

Velvet Kills came to life in 2015 and has since gained a steady following, leading to their debut EP - Memory released in March 2016 (supported by Ambiconmusic) and a European tour in Fall and Winter 2016 marking the end of their Memory era and moving them into their next phase.

Music video Fill Me Out was release in early December with Darkitalia - Webzine & Booking introducing the new LP Mischievous Urges to be released in Spring 2017 with Oráculo Records.

The two music videos Red Shoes directed by Ron Goldstein and Fill Me Out directed by Art Mistake were both selected for the 3rd Edition of Muvi - International Festival of Music and Cinema projected in Cinema São Jorge on December 2016.

Velvet Kills are based in between Lisbon, Paris and Berlin.
