Premiere: “Promises” By The Velvet Teaparty

The Who: The Velvet Teaparty (Los Angeles, CA)

The What: Pointing folks in the direction of new artists is a thing that we’re really into. Now hold that thought as we introduce you to Vanessa McNiel (vox), Gabriel Maska (bass/vox), Jonas Streffer (drums) and Andres Yepez (guitar) aka Los Angeles alt rock quartet, The Velvet Teaparty as we bring you the premiere of their brand new video, “Promises.”

Stark in black and white, the video is a bare bearing of emotion with a purpose. And that purpose, according to McNiel, is “…to demonstrate that when we are not honest with ourselves or the object of our idolatry, we inevitably end up losing at the end.”

‘”Promises’ is simply about the oaths we make to those we love.” she adds. “We’ll make promises, some are real and some are false, the intention can be true or it cannot, but at the end it may solely be for the sake of not being alone.”

The Where: Once all the feels have settled down, should you want to keep up with The Velvet Teaparty, it’s as easy as heading to their official website, Facebook page and following them at @VelvetTeaparty on Twitter.
