“I was really in the ’60s band at the time, and I thought’ Velvetins’ sounded somehow,” explained lead singer / guitarist Spencer Murphy. He and drummer Addison Hiller met “probably at the Wonderbar Venue” in Edmonton, Canada, about six years ago. True to their name, they create simple, notched cuts that classify Spencer as “very chill indie rock.” It has gained millions of streams and a growing global fan base.
Inspired by travel, and feeling “somewhat crazy and extra tired,” Spencer built a home studio in his bedroom, flipping the bed against the wall to accommodate Addison’s drum kit. “I had this old 4 track TEAC tape machine with a matching board from an old friend and went into test mode,” he said. “Addison will come then and we’ll find out all the ideas.”
“‘Make It Through’ is about losing people in your life,” Spencer explains, their latest single. “When I wrote this, I just found out that a friend had committed suicide, and I needed a song like ‘Make It Through’ to feel better. The chords sounded warm like a hug, and the poem was our It’s kind of about life, but it also acknowledges in a way that there is a huge world where other people are suffering. “
A day has come in Spencer’s life in The Velvetines.
