The Velvet Ants / Press



“Rather than your typical alternative band, The Velvet Ants' combination of a variety of styles from metal to psychedelic rock makes them both current and unique.”

“I hear plenty of early Nirvana with a bit more of a Green Day push right out of the gate with this local twin-guitar quartet. Their second song has me falling out of my chair as it is a strong cover of the Wipers' "Telepathic Love". There are some excellent elements here and this is a band I would check out again.”

“Cool tunes. Sounds like a blend between Nirvana and the vocal harmonies of The Byrds. Good stuff.”

“Dense, Thick, and uber sonic! Plods along like a juggernaut! I love it!”

“Blue Cheer and the Beach Boys meet the Beatles and Crosby, Stills & Nash a half century later. Nice!!!”

“Great to hear a Rock Alternative track with legible lyrics and terrificly smooth and marvelously mellow vocals!”
