Melbourne’s Devil Electric are gearing up to release their self-titled debut album. The 37minute, 9-track LP will be released digitally, in various colourways on 180g vinyl and in a variety of pre-order merchandise bundles on August 11, 2017.
Second single ‘Lady Velvet’ is accompanied alongside an animated lyric video, created by German design studio 12 Inch Media.
Bassist & co-writer Tom Hulse offers an insight into the lyrical themes behind this track…
“Lady Velvet was written with the idea of painting a picture at the forefront. I wanted to create images and draw a theme in the listeners mind within the first few lines, touching on opposing forces and building a character. The song is about the push and shove of relationships we experience with the world, both on a human level and a fictional/dramatised one. There’s always light and shade in life and when you run your hand across velvet you can see it change in colour and form, reflecting just that in a material form.”
Devil Electric will be rounding out 2017 with their Australian album tour (August – October) and an overseas run through Indonesia in December and with European & US dates in the works.
Devil Electric will be holding their album launch on Saturday, September 16 @ The Evelyn Hotel, Melbourne
