Cornish four piece The Velvet Hands are fast building a reputation as one of the must-see new bands on the UK circuit, with early comparisons to New York bands The Strokes and Parquet Courts.

2019 saw them support Liam Gallagher and Paul Weller, play major festivals such as Isle of Wight, and undertake their own headline UK tour with multiple sold-out dates.

They finished the year playing the Modern Age Music end-of-year party in London, and Louise Schofield spoke to the band ahead of their raucous live set.
