U.S. Velvet is the project of Zahara Jaime (Eyedress, ZZZAHARA) and Collin Davis (Ynes Mon). Their self-titled debut single finds light in unlikely places— a washed-up Elvis, a poltergeist in Tuscan leather — but anxiety is never far away; and as it creeps in.
The video for “U.S. Velvet”, directed by Brother Adam Willis (King Krule, Beirut, Parquet Courts) features the pool party to end all pool parties, brightly colored jumpsuits, cardboard cutouts and a cameo from Stones Throw’s enigmatic Folerio. Collin and Zahara launch a classic horror movie assault on the American Dream: “We live to erase / Take me to a far gone place”
“U.S. Velvet’ 12” vinyl includes a dub version by Pachyman (ATO Records).
