More new stuff from the DeClunk HQ. This time it’s Brazilian band The Velvicks. The band hail from small town Minas Gerais and is now based in NYC. Read some stuff then give it a listen.
“Old Mistakes” is a song dedicated to a brilliant young girl who was raised by a broken/violent family unit whose parents got divorced at a young age. All her defense mechanisms and triggers built throughout her developing years were a necessary evil she now believes it is time to deal with. Although her psyche has evolved, she still has difficulties in identifying and avoiding destructive patterns which echoes negatively on everyone around her, including on her new family. Vick Nader from The Velvicks shares: “This is a song about trauma, vicious cycles and the toll it takes in one’s mental health.”
