The Velvet Teen

What began as a side project called "the Secret Band" -- an apt name, considering singer/guitarist Judah Nagler and drummer Logan Whitehurst were actually hiding the music from their bandmates -- soon blossomed into something these musicians wanted to share with greater public. After putting together a full-length demo on a four-track, they left behind their band Little Tin Frog and recorded an EP, Comasynthesis, as the Velvet Teen. Bassist/vocalist Josh Staples joined and the art pop trio self-released an EP, The Great Beast February, in early 2001. In 2002, the group kicked off San Francisco's vaunted Noise Pop Festival and toured the country in support of their full-length debut, Out of the Fierce Parade. Their eclectic, piano-based follow-up Elysium arrived in 2004, though tragedy struck that same year when Whitehurst was diagnosed with brain cancer. He would eventually lose his battle with cancer, passing away in 2006. Working with new drummer Casey Deitz, The Velvet Teens changed tack once again favoring a more EDM-influenced sound on their 2006 EP GyzmKid and full-length release C*m Laude!. Working briefly as a quartet with the addition of guitarist Matthew Izen (Polar Bears, The New Trust), they recorded the No Star EP for their 2010 tour of Japan. Slimming back down to an Izen-less trio, they began recording their fourth album in 2012 with co-producers Steve Choi (RX Bandits, Peace'd Out) and Roger Camero (No Motiv, Peace'd Out). After signing with Topshelf Records, they released All Is Illusory in 2015. ~ Ron DePasquale & Timothy Monger, Rovi

Elysium is one of the best albums ever put together, and I believe they recorded it in a barn off of a laptop. Beautifully haunting vocals and well written lyrics...jus t listen to chimera obscurant with lyrics.

BTW, the old stuff is emo-c*m laude is more experimental , noise rock and arty. No Star is straight rock. Great live shows.

They are currently in the studio writing and recording their next full length disc as a follow up to the No Star EP (which is a fantastic preview of the new album)

The lead singer sounds like Jamie Cullum. A band so full of talent and promise. Logan Whitehurst was a very talented young man all the way to the end it seems. It doesn't seem fair and yet I suppose we should be glad to have the few discs that are out there with Logan Whitehurst.

Oh, and they aren't shoegaze. Pretty straight emo.

One thing to remember when listening to "reverie" is that Judah was around 18 when he wrote it. He and his brother Ephraim are basically musical geniuses. I highly suggest listening to their newer work to get a better idea of how good they really are. Also, check out Josh's other band The New Trust.

sounds amazing.

If you like this band, you'd also like The Umbrellas. Both bands are definitely worth checking out. Very neat style.

Don't believe Beansworthe. He's probably sitting in his Camaro rocking out to Frampton drinking light beer all alone.

F**king amazing band. Words cannot describe how wonderful the Velvet Teen's music is and it gets a hell of a lot better live too. Plain and simple, listen to these guys...you will never regret it!

I find it rather shallow and trite.

The Velvet Teen moves me in a way that most artists dont. Crashing rythems, deep felt vocals, crushing melody, it takes my breath away. They dont play their music, they bleed it. It's beautiful and forlorn, deep and fanciful.

I love there style of music. Never really heard music like this. My favorite song is Forlorn on their album Elysium. THey Rock
