The Velvoids

Polynesia Baby

Regular price
Polynesia Baby is from the hours where the night trespasses upon dawn, the deep blue borderline of the waking dream. Plucked from the sonic subconscious, as melancholy as Brian Jones' ghost, the cypher, from mystical Tangiers to old New York and back again, the influences apparent and yet The Velvoids have their own scratchy finesse; where a pleasingly dishevelled serendipity meets low—fi down at heel ease.

Recorded during a 10-day studio session. Written and performed by The Velvoids. Produced by Nick Arkomanis and The Velvoids. Assistant Engineer: George Kyliakoudis. Liner notes by Nina Antonia. Design Layout by Vice Lesley.

"Chords that cut through skin such is their serrated edges, industrial levels of adhesion to our crumpling ears, all set off by a singer who has something primal going on. An attractive dimension as we can properly hear this act's thinking, their musicianship and a slight nod to psychedelic tendencies. All is not lost then, apart from the damage done to our fragile minds." MP3 HUGGER
