Formed in North London by brothers Desmond (vocals, guitar) and Gavin Lambert (bass, vocals) along with drummer Rob Flanagan, Some Velvet Morning first began playing together in the mid-2000s. Drawing on their love for classic British rock and pop, the trio developed organically and in 2007 worked with veteran producers Rik Simpson and Mike Pelanconi to deliver their debut LP, “Silence Will Kill You”. The album was well received and their follow-up single, “How to Start a Revolution,” garnered international attention when it was used in the trailer for the 2010 film Kick Ass.
A self-titled EP followed later that year, featuring a tighter, more dialed-in sound for the group. Seeking a better way to fund their next album, Some Velvet Morning turned to the crowd-funding label My Major Company and ended up raising £100,000 to make their second LP,”Allies”, which was released in 2012.
Rather than stick with the tradition of single/album/tour, the band released a new track every month in 2016. They have recently branched out to write the soundtrack to a new movie, ‘Kat And The Band’, starring Dougie Poynter, due for screenings from the autumn of 2018. A new album in partnership with Pledge Music is also being recorded over the summer – many of the new tracks will have their live debut at Scala.
