The Velvet Hands unleash a brand new single into the world in ‘When This Is Over’ released via JamX Recordings/ AWAL.
Their timing is nothing short of impeccable, with the track being a celebration of lockdown ending and normality returning to the UK (with some safety measures still in place).
The song is being released to raise money and awareness for The Music Venue Trust in support of the ongoing crisis affecting the live music industry during Covid 19.
Listen to ‘When This Is Over’ by The Velvet Hands on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
After 13 weeks of lockdown it was time for a change, a time to celebrate, and who better than Cornish rockers The Velvet Hands to raise a glass to the lifting of lockdown measures with a timely ode to the joys of getting a round in.
The quartet of Toby Mitchell, Dan Able, Louis Mitchell and Sam Hilder blend slacker story-telling and belting guitar riffs reminiscent of The Strokes and 90’s Brit-Pop.

Described by The NME as “full of bolshy spirit”, the band’s self-recorded debut album went on to be Huw Stephens Radio 1 Album of the Week. Of that album, Radio X DJ John Kennedy said, “Every single they’ve released is an instant hit as far as I’m concerned”.
Part of Cornwall’s blistering garage-rock scene, the band have supported some massive names including Liam Gallagher, Fontaines DC, Paul Weller, YAK, Frank Turner, Wallows and VANT along with headlining stages at The Isle of Wight and Y NOT festivals.
