Velvet Kills Short Info

Velvet Kills is a synthpunk/electrorock duo with Susana Santos on vocals/bass & 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 Alan Vega, Malaria!, Kas Product, Iggy Pop, The Clash, and Lou Reed.

The group came to life in 2015, beginning with a chance encounter on a trance dance floor where Susana and Harris discovered their mutual love for rock, synths and beige Steinberger guitars.

Velvet Kills has since gained a steady following, leading to their debut EP - Memory, released in March 2016, and a European tour in Fall 2016 marking the end of their Memory era and moving them into their next phase, Mischievous Urges, their new EP which is set to be released in early 2017.
