The Velveteins just released their new single “Don’t Yah Feel Better” from their forthcoming debut LP Slow Wave. The music for “Don’t Yah Feel Better” came to them pretty easily. Around the same time they penned the song, they were listening to a lot of traditional Indian music which inspired the guitar melody. They wanted to make the lyrics feel lighthearted, and about how everything you need is around you, you just have to stop and listen for it. The single is coming ahead of their debut full-length Slow Wave, which they are releasing with Fierce Panda Canada in 2017.
Chelsey and the Noise melds deep analog synths, glitch inspired beats, and aggressive vocals to create a darker breed of electronic music. The Bay Area based duo draws on influences from genres such as dream pop and electrogaze to deliver a sound both alluring and haunting.
Musically, "Dandelion" was the last song to be written for the album and delves a bit into their love for the '80s sound wise," one-half the duo, Bob DiBari, explains. "The drums sounds come from the Roland 707 and most of the synth sounds stem from classic '80s keyboards. Lyrically, the song deals with a couple that has started to grow apart as tastes and interest change. "
Vocally, "Dandelion" was an attempt to have a melody pour out in the same way the prose short story does to match storytelling in the lyrics.
Bob DiBari composes the band’s atmospheric soundscapes. Chris Cleary provides the vocals.

The tune is about the fate of a relationship being questioned, and ultimately relinquished. The initial exuberance of anthemic synths were composed while immersed in loving partnerships, but the forlorn lyrics and wounded harmonies arose from the fallout of two long-term relationships. The song is at an emotional crux, on the precipice of separation and acceptance. In the end, "Up To You" offers a glimmer of hope in the wake of loss.
Musically, "Up To You" picks up the pace from Saxsyndrum 's last single "Dawn Breaks" — AP Bergeron delivers crisp vocals mixed over Switchenko’s meandering sax and Schofield’s thick beat. On this release, Saxsyndrum find themselves continuing to toy with pop idioms that are laced with their intrinsic experimental-electronic origins. On the B-side, the dub version takes the core sentiment, imbued by drum & bass, and stretches out reversed melodies and lyrical fragments with tape delay to suspend moments in total free-fall.
"Up To You" will be released on 7” vinyl by Oh Hi, featuring the single and dub versions, with artwork by Danica Olders.
