The upcoming release from Son of the Velvet Rat, Dorado, rides through the dusty California desert with haunting folk noir melodies.
On Blood Red Shoes, the duo capture the sweltering heat and arid wind of the sandy landscape they call home. Georg Altziebler’s distinctively deep smoky voice carries the melody on its journey, as the falling sweat seems to evaporate before ever hitting the cracking dirt. The addition of a layer of backing vocals from Victoria Williams, creates an almost danceable counterpoint to the sombre nature of the lyrics.
Give it a spin.
