Some Velvet Morning

Formed in North London by brothers Desmond (vocals, guitar) and Gavin Lambert (bass, vocals) along with drummer Rob Flanagan, Some Velvet Morning first began playing together in the mid-2000s. Drawing on their love for classic British rock and pop, the trio developed organically and in 2007 worked with veteran producers Rik Simpson and Mike Pelaconi to deliver their debut LP, Silence Will Kill You. The album was well received and their follow-up single, "How to Start a Revolution," garnered international attention when it was used in the trailer for the 2010 film Kick Ass. A self-titled EP followed later that year, featuring a tighter, more dialed-in sound for the group. Seeking a better way to fund their next album, Some Velvet Morning turned to the crowd-funding label My Major Company and ended up raising £100,000 to make their second LP, Allies, which was released in 2012 and featured a reworked version of the stadium anthem "How to Start a Revolution." ~ Timothy Monger
