With soaring melodic vocals and spacey vibes that strike a certain chord, We Are Not Alone has a vaguely familiar sound, yet comes across as somewhat alien to the ears.

The song’s style of music is a strange anomaly; a wonderful mixture of synth disco and indie pop that should be a potential musical marriage, but unfortunately, and somewhat frustratingly, the song never progresses out of 3rd gear. However, the Salford four-piece’s offering is quite unique, shimmering and floating along, perfect for a summer day for all to enjoy.

Not falling under one musical genre, We Are Not Alone shows that Velvet Shakes are an exciting band to keep an eye on, young, eager and brimming with potential.
