Velocity Girl emerged from the Washington DC indie scene in the early 1990s with a reverb drenched sound combining melody and noise, inspired in equal measure by British shoe gaze and 60s pop. The group is back with much vengeance, playing their first shows in more than 25 years.
The group scored early with the iconic 7”single My Forgotten Favorite on Slumberland Records, before signing to Sub-Pop. And releasing three albums: the groundbreaking noise pop album Copacetic album, the cleaned-up shimmer of the breakthrough Simpatico and the underrated Gilded Stars and Zealous Hearts before calling it a day in 1996. Listening to Velocity Girl in 2023 finds their sound perfectly meeting the times.
