NEW YORK (PRWEB) JUNE 03, 2019
Inspiring. Uplifting. Celebratory. The music of Velvet Code is electropop born of deep emotion and a longing for human connection. Dreamer is the second full-length studio album by Velvet Code and it was forged during a time of personal tragedy and deep personal loss. Velvet Code’s Dreamer (AMG | Sony Music Entertainment) album is out now.
“Break The Silence” is the first single off the Dreamer album. The song is an earworm that burrows its way into the listener’s mind upon first spin. Velvet Code’s buoyant vocals bounce deftly above his expert synthesizer riffs and driving electropop rhythm. Originally released in Canada in September 2018, “Break The Silence” has achieved more than 1.5 million streams across digital platforms including Spotify, YouTube and Apple Music. “Break The Silence” aims to remove some of the stigma surrounding issues of mental health and the song was inspired by Velvet Code’s own experiences battling anxiety.
“Mary Offered Ladybugs and Love Yous” is the second single off the Dreamer album and that song is currently charting at #27 on Billboard. Originally released in Canada in February 2019, “Mary Offered Ladybugs and Love Yous” is another strong effort from Velvet Code. This song evokes Robert Miles’ “Children” on the intro with its haunting acoustic piano. Immediately, Velvet Code’s anguished vocals seize the listener with an urgency impossible to ignore. The production gradually builds until the song erupts in a triumphant-sounding chorus. “Mary Offered Ladybugs and Love Yous” illustrates Velvet Code’s skill at crafting catchy hooks and the irresistible electropop production cuts through the airwaves to the core of music lovers’ hearts. Dreamer is a collection of nine original songs dedicated to Velvet Code’s late-father and it gathers stories from Velvet Code’s own life experiences. Though the recording of the album was heavily influenced by a period of emotional turmoil, the album’s goal is ultimately to lift and inspire all who hear it and remind people that there’s always positivity and light if we seek it.
