In The Spotlight

Velvet Starlings – “Sold Down The River”

Despite his mere 15 years on this planet, the musical heart of talented singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Christian Gisborne is firmly planted in the swinging sixties. Influenced by the British invasion bands like The Beatles and The Doors, the band has performed their vintage coated Indie-Rock sound at many festivals, such as famed SXSW, as well as Sofar Sounds Los Angeles.

Taken from their upcoming self-titled EP, their latest single is a flower-powerful celebration of the beatnik sound. With vintage-dipped organ riffs and acoustic guitars setting the 60s scene, the song truly comes alive in the chorus with a pounding rhythm, a touch of brass and choral harmonies. Highlighting the classic-sounding grit of the lead vocals, this is a majestic slice of retro rock.
