‘Effortless and cool, pop but not sugar coated, raw but yet nuanced with great production and fantastic Jack White esque vocals.
Can’t wait for whatever they do next’ 78RPM
‘Hooks. Hooks. Hooks. Its all in the name. Songs to sweat all night to, leaving you in a Pixies cum Vines delirium’ Debbie and Shirley
‘All slacker-vibes and fuzzy, DIY riffs’ Gold Flake Paint
From Bristol via Canada, Velcro Hooks are ready to be unleashed.
Howling Owl Records are very excited. You see, there’s this band that we’ve had play three of our club nights, a band that is the only one on the lips and ears of everyone exiting the venue at the end of the night. They kept themselves off the internet for the first year of their existence but still caused a frenzy at any show they played and left people scrambling to google to find them to no avail, but now they are primed for release into the wild. This band is Velcro Hooks. We are excited because we’ve been waiting for these guys to record some songs for us to release (which we are honoured to be doing so) for a while now, and now here they are, armed with a seven track EP on 12″ that has managed the near impossible task of encapsulating their live energy and containing it on record.
Gymnophoria will be limited to 100 copies and, as with all Howling Owl Releases, will be worth a purchase just for the product itself…but it just so happens that the songs are some of the best you will this year.
