Producing music that is dipped in physchedelia and subtly experimental, the Essex four piece have been releasing a series of tracks online throughout the past year. Now newly signed to London based independent co-label EXAG/ RIP Records and all set to release LP Gorilla.

Velvet Morning is the project of 20 year old Samuel Jones accompanied my band members Charlie Carmichael, Chris Richardson and John Kirkwood. Based from all over the seaside towns of the Southend borough,London and Cambridge, taking influence from a variety of psych/rhythm & blues/soul from the last 50 years Velvet Morning comfortably fit in with the surge of new wave psychedelia.

Gorilla is a stunning affair, compiled of the 12 first songs written solely by Jones over the past year and a half. The songs are a product of constant home recordings and the selection of songs recorded live at gigs, each songs carefully chose to compliment each other as an album. As Jones explains “I wanted to make something as subtly smooth as possible and then build on the songs after. How I saw it in my head was to take something classic sounding and make it sound kind of deranged in the writing process”.
