Drawing upon varied roots, The Booda Velvets? collaborative songwriting has evolved to create a unique sound that combines strong melodies, evocative lyrics, captivating guitars and solid grooves. Their debut album, "Headrush," displays an impressive range and depth, from the moody and kinetic title track to the hard-driving anthem ''American.'' With a blend of lush distorted guitars, melodic vocals, and layered soundscapes, The Booda Velvets craft songs that are passionate and intelligent. Their music explores dynamics ranging from intense and visceral to dreamy and serene, with an undercurrent of pop sensibility that occasionally rises to the surface.

"I saw the Booda Velvets live in Urbana, Illinois. They openned for Gene Loves Jezebel, believe it or not! But unfortunately they followed a horrible frat band and the crowd was thin when they went on. Regardless, they put on a fantastic show and hooked me to their fusion of all that's good about modern rock. They are fun to watch and definitely experience their music when they play. They're also really nice guys and came down to introduce themselves to everyone in the audience. "Headrush" is a phenomenal debut."
Beautiful, intense rock

"A fantastic debut from a band that was enthralling live, and here is captured just as compellingly. From high-energy rockers like "Cassius Clay" to the sparkling title track, to the politically charged "American," this CD is packed with great songs. Fairly successful at the indie level, it's a shame that this band never made it really big -- they were just a couple of years ahead of their time."
