They have been playing music together for the past 4 years with various versions of the band playing up and down the country. In this time the opened for chart placing bands such as Glass Caves, headlining Merrion St Festival and playing a sold out night in their home town of Leeds. Though when the final four first got together in a rehearsal room they knew they could create something fun, refreshing and unique. Combining basement beats with arena ready riffs; VELVIT was born.
