Aqua Velvas

See You Next Tuesday (self release)

The second album from this Marske/Saltburn band sees them purring along in fine form. They’re an outfit that appears to have distilled some of the best British indie-pop sounds of years gone by including the likes of XTC, The Style Council (on their track ‘John & The Reverend’), Elvis Costello & The Attractions, The Lightning Seeds (on their track ‘Angel’) and more. There’s a lovely cover of Orange Juice’s ‘I Can’t Help Myself’ and throughout their rhythm section is packing real heat. Bravo.
