London-based band Little Death Machine release their new single, Velvet Skin. The band are also offering it as a free download on their website.
Velvet Skin is the follow up to their previous single, Hit Me and slows the pace into a slightly more sinister world. The video, shot in black and white, is a perfect match of surprisingly good quality footage, cleverly cut with a narrative that keeps you watching. The torturer, an outwardly respectable suited chap, is a Colin Firth ringer who seems to want to put a stop to this kind of rebellious class music. Although dark in theme, the track is interesting and identifiable from the first play. The band are clearly intelligent and work to a depth that makes them stand out.
They are playing at Electrowerkz, London on November 16. Try and catch them live if you can. As they are currently without PR, they could grow fast with PP (People Power).
