With the release of the Album ‘I Won’t Be Civilised’ we finally create a vision of what Velatine is about. It’s dark, it’s got layers of detail that I expect are hard to absorb in a first listen but it’s also got an air of optimism. It’s Maggie's vocals that ties the story together, the string through everything. I hope this collection of songs takes the listener on a journey, whatever they want, that journey to be.
