The Velvoids – “Absolutely Nothing”


“Absolutely Nothing” is an enjoyable new track from The Velvoids, a duo from Athens, Greece. Vice Lesley and Dorah X comprise the project, formed by Lesley in the early months of 2003. He met Dorah in 2006, and they began a very fruitful musical partnership. They eventually got married, in 2016, and have continued to release material since then. “Absolutely Nothing” is their latest, a track that shows a fondness for hypnotic ’70s-inspired pop/rock, with lush vocals, tranquil keys, and serene guitar strums.

Regarding the track’s video, the band says the following:

“We wanted to work with friend Themistocles Lambridis who was the director behind a documentary release in 2015 about snowboarding in Greece entitled “The Thing About Greece” ,who had asked for one of our songs to use in his film. As fellow skateboarders, we became friends. He’s used our music for numerous films after that, this year he had prepared another short film entitled “THE IGLOO PROTZEKT” and had asked to include ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for it, we liked it so much we asked him to edit a video for us with shots from the film.”

“Absolutely Nothing” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2018’ Spotify playlist.
