Rock & Roll Band Them Velvet Tongues has finally released their song “I AM THE DRUG” accompanying it with a video
Saturday November 27, 2021 (London, UK) British new Rock & Roll Band Them Velvet Tongues has finally released debut single “I AM THE DRUG” with accompanying video. Out on 25 November, and available on all streaming platforms.
Five Blackburn friends were struck by the Lockdown Blues and decided to start a Rock & Roll band in a cellar. I AM THE DRUG was a natural debut single for them because it was the first song they created together.
It encapsulates the band’s essence: nasty riffs, face melting guitar solos, soaring harmonies, and a dash of hip-hop swagger for good measure.
The lyrics are a satire on charismatic leaders’ ability to use politics and religion as a narcotic to manipulate the public, as well as a caution to avoid false prophets.
The song was influenced by cults such as the Manson family, Jonestown, and, more recently, Trump‘s ascension in the United States.
I’m sure you’re familiar with Them Velvet Tongues. Okay, now that you’ve admitted to lying, allow me to introduce you. They can introduce themselves if you don’t know who they are.
They don’t need my arrogant, word-soaked string of plaudits and lines of linguistic cocaine. With I Am The Drug, they know who they are.
Them Velvet Tongues open forcefully, channelling the German hard rock titans The Scorpions. They start off like the explosion from Breaking Bad’s “This is not meth” sequence. Something wicked is on the way, and it’ll be worth seeing.
I Am The Drug uses the vocal range that crests and peaks with the song, while the two guitars express the strength of Malcolm and Angus Young, with a riff-laden combination 2 from your favourite chain eatery.
It has everything for a first tune. This music is what most of the 1980s were composed of, and it’s not your typical over-the-counter painkillers.
What was it that kept Nikki Sixx going? They have a very enjoyable video for a rock tune that doesn’t show bare asses and crowded bars going crazy. This Velvet Revolver intensity tune is the bedrock of all rock.
