Some Velvet Morning Announce New Single 'Don't Think' & Tour Dates

Some Velvet Morning release their new single ‘Don’t Think’ on October 31st. The track will be available as a download and also as a 500 limited edition gatefold  7” single, which will all be hand signed by the band.

The three-piece comprises of brothers, Des Lambert on vocals and guitar, Gavin Lambert on Bass and Rob Flanagan on Drums). The band moniker originates from the Lee Hazlewood/Nancy Sinatra classic song, 'Some Velvet Morning'; in fact Sinatra gave them her nod of approval and was flattered when the band asked permission to use the name.

The video for 'Don't Think' was shot in a sweaty boxing gym at the National Stadium in Bangkok, with the band performing in the ring, as two female Thai boxers fight it out on camera.  The idea for the video came about after they played a show at Rachadmanoen Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, as part of 'Heavyweight Rock The Ring.’  If you can imagine the “Girls on Film” video by Duran Duran meets the Frankie Goes To Hollywood clip for “Two Tribes”, then you would be on the right track, but featuring fewer politicians!

Adept in the studio, exciting live, now all SVM had to crack was how to sell their records. They’re approaching this in a novel way, with MyMajorCompany, who operate via “crowd funding”, a new type of record label system, already successful in France, whereby fans are encouraged to invest in new artists, giving them a say in the future direction of the bands or singers. SVM needed £100,000 to make it work, and they amassed that sum in an astonishing two months. Now, MyMajorCompany have enough funds to launch the band properly, this song is taken from their forthcoming album due to be released in Spring 2012.
