about

"Post-punk with a early '80s sound and influence. While the general feel of the vocals and melodies is melancholic, it's saved from being a downer by the high energy and mid to fast tempos. I can here elements of Evermore in the Regime's sound. There are some interesting guitar sonics, noticeably evident in 'There Is A Light'. Certainly worth checking out." - Rip It Up

"Velvet Regime consists of four high school guys from Wellington who have been getting quite a bit of press lately, (partly as a result of being in the Smokefree Rockquest final this year), and rightly so. There are only four songs here and it’s just not enough, the band’s energy is enormous. Opener Untitled (Joel‘s Song) is by far the stand out, indie music at its finest, with a bit of extra swagger. The rest of the EP follows suit, with fine performances from each of the band members on each track. The guitars are explosive, bass lines catchy and the vocal melodies are cleverly done – each of the instruments allowed plenty of attention" - NZ Musician

Track Name: There Is A Light
Please throw away your knives, I dont want you to hurt yourself
Its not helping anybody, its just harming one's self
Everyone's lives have their cycles, its not always a sunny day
Dont let the jealous put you down, dont believe what they all say

Its just a rainy day tomorrow, its just a rainy day today
No, the sun wont shine tomorrow, but the sun will shine someday
Oh, the stars in the sky will tell you, that everything's turned grey
But the stars in the sky will tell you, that you just need to pray

My life would be over, if you put me through this way
My life would be over, if you left me in this state
Look around you, be happy and sing
Your voice is like an angel's, it brightens anything

Its just a rainy day tomorrow, its just a rainy day today
No, the sun wont shine tomorrow, but the sun will shine someday
Oh, the stars in the sky will tell you, that everything's turned grey
But the stars in the sky will tell you, that you just need to pray

There's light at the end of the tunnel
There's light at the end of the tunnel
There's light at the end of the tunnel
There's light at the end of the tunnel
