International music duo Velvet River is making waves with a series of live video recordings. These captivating performances were filmed and recorded in an industrial complex located in Riga, Latvia.
Velvet River burst onto the scene with the release of their debut EP, "Casablanca," at the beginning of the summer. Now, they're giving fans an intimate concert experience through these live recordings.
Kārlis, the drummer of Velvet River, shed light on the purpose behind these recordings:
The charm of live recordings provides the listener with a similar feeling as a concert, as everything happens at the same time and place. Moreover, such videos offer the opportunity to see the musicians up close.
Fans are in for a treat with two brand-new tracks, "Altercy" and "Occurrence," which make their debut in this intimate setting.
The choice of "Provodniks" as the filming location was natural for the duo. They sought a place that provided an authentic atmosphere and complemented their unique sound.
Kārlis Roberts Kalejs and Tauna Woolfe's musical journey began in late 2019 while studying music in the UK. Although bass guitar and drums are typically regarded as supporting instruments, Velvet River's experimental approach explores the possibilities of creating a captivating musical experience in a minimalist context. Their sound and concept draw inspiration from modern and contemporary jazz, infused with their individual sources of creativity.
