The Swedish rock duo Velvet Insane releases on December 13th their new single “A Brand New Start”. Before releasing the single I had the opportunity to ask Jesper Lindgren and Bruce Kulick a few questions.
This is what they have to say about the new single:
“This song is made for everyone. Everyone can feel the lyrics, they can sing it along, clap along, and just feel the happiness. This is what the song means for the band while making it. It is fast paced with a soft sound along with a crystal clear editing and mastering”. It has a little extra spice to it because renown guitarist Bruce Kulick featured on it.
So let’s find out what they have to tell us.
The band is called “Velvet Insane”. Can you is us something more about the band’s name. And maybe something about the history of the band.
Jesper: The band started in late 2013, as a dream project. I wanted to create a band that had a name and an image that was larger than life, something that could be straight out of 70s glam rock. I later met Jonas and the dream became reality.
