Roxx Revolt & The Velvets
Roxx Revolt & The Velvets backstory
Hailing from Naples, Florida, Roxx Revolt & The Velvets are a new band boasting old school authenticity.
Fusing punk rock attitude with a glamtastic ear for melody, the shimmering quartet have energy to burn.
Explosive riffs and hazy lyrics make for a sonically sexy 70s throwback.
But frontwoman Roxx Revolt and her assembled Velvets are only just getting started.
The T. Rex meets New York Dolls hybrid are busily putting the finishing touches to a hotly anticipated debut album.
And UK fans have been promised an early Christmas present with a slew of British dates in the pipeline this autumn.
Like your shimmering rock and roll with added glitter, flares and hair?
You’ll love Roxx Revolt & The Velvets.
In the band’s own words:
“Supersonica Girl’s a feelgood song!
“It’s a song that gets in your body and makes you feel like you have to move.
“The kind of song that you can sing while you’re driving or having a fun night with your friends and makes you want to get up and dance.
“At the same time it hits you with some classic-rock inspired guitar licks to get your head banging.
“The video’s a short story about imagination, confidence and self-discovery, put together in a very classic way.
“And we felt the whole vibe of the song demanded some roller skate action!”
The verdict on Supersonica Girl
Did the ghosts of Bowie and Bolan just combine to jumpstart rock and roll?
Supersonica Girl evokes memories of 70s glam rock at its outrageous, unfiltered best.
But this cracking tune is no lame copy and paste of a much-missed bygone era.
Roxx Revolt & The Velvets boast enough in the locker to bring something new to the table.
And the band’s marvellously named frontwoman is at her hip-shaking, honey-tongued best on this stomping new single.
Complete with its skate-themed video clip, Supersonica Girl would be the feelgood hit of the summer…if summer hadn’t just finished.
Combining blinding hooks with super-cool looks, this classy quartet is shining a light on punk-tinged glitter glam.
Roxx Revolt? We’ll be manning the barricades when the riots begin.
