Velvet Starlings… Back of the Train

60s infused garage rock ‘n’ roll band Velvet Starlings release their new single ‘Back Of The Train’ on 9th June, through Golden Robot Records.

Hailing from Los Angeles and the beach cities of Southern California, Velvet Starlings are becoming a staple in the blossoming neo psychedelic garage rock scene on the West Coast of the USA, with several tours under their belt, internationally and across the country.

The band was founded by young lead singer, guitarist and organ player Christian Gisborne and  rounded out by brothers, drummer Foster Poling and bassist Hudson Polling, with the new addition of long time school friend Ashton Minnich on second guitar.

Back Of The Train’ centres around an infectious, “sneaky low note guitar riff and drums so over-compressed it would make The Sonics cringe – it’s awful in the best way possible” said Gisborne. The song paints the story of paying dues, making sacrifices and putting in the time and work to get where you’re heading in life, all while making sure to enjoy the ride along the way.
