Velvet Starlings – Back of the Train + Live Full Band Session)

The latest track from Southern California-based indie rock band Velvet Starling is called “Back of the Train” and marks a real step forward for the band. The track is more mature and focused while moving to a more garage and harder sound.

The track which has a driving energy which builds to a frenetic power as lead singer Christian Gisborne turns up the intensity with Ty Segall-like vocals.

There’s an infectious quality to the song with high octane guitars and heart pounding drums.  However, the track maintains the band’s 60s prog rock roots with it sounding reminiscent of a modern version of a song by The Kinks.

According to Gisborne, the song is about

“paying dues, making sacrifices, putting in the time and work to get to where you are headed in life while making sure to enjoy the ride along the way.”

The track is the debut single off the band’s forthcoming debut album “Technicolor Shakedown” and is by far their best song to date. If “Back of the Train” is any indicator of what’s to come from “Technicolor Shakedown” then we absolutely cannot wait for it’s August 27release.
