NYC-based rockers The Velvicks share a new single, “Old Mistakes” on May 18th. “Old Mistakes” is a song dedicated to a brilliant young girl who was raised by a broken/violent family unit whose parents got divorced at a young age. All her defense mechanisms and triggers built throughout her developing years were a necessary evil she now believes it is time to deal with. Although her psyche has evolved, she still has difficulties in identifying and avoiding destructive patterns which echoes negatively on everyone around her, including on her new family.
Vick Nader from The Velvicks shares: “This is a song about trauma, vicious cycles and the toll it takes in one’s mental health.”
Featuring gritty guitar solos, high energy grungey drums, and frontman Vick Nader’s powerhouse stadium anthem-ready vocals, “Old Mistakes” showcases the rock n roll grit and storytelling flair that makes The Velvicks so unique. With influences ranging from Queens of The Stone Age, and Foo Fighters to The Black Keys and Radiohead, the band delivers heart-pounding Rock that is at once familiar and distinctive. The sounds of the band members’ individual experiences combine with a shared passion for authentic rock and roll. “Songs are making sense; the band is delivering badass live performances and people are responding to it,” says Vick Nader.
