Velatine’s latest album, “I Won’t Be Civilised” is a thrilling ride through the realms of industrial, modern gothic pop. The duo, comprised of Melbourne producer Loki Lockwood and rising vocalist Maggie Alley, have created a song that’s both dark and layered with intricate details that demand multiple listens.
Maggie’s hauntingly beautiful vocals tie the whole album together, taking the listener on an emotional journey through each song. From the pre-release singles “No God” and “Comic” to the title track’s film clip directed by Mark Bakaitus, Velatine’s music has been making waves across the Australian and international music scenes.
Loki’s unconventional approach to electronica, combining a love of cinematic soundtracks, and industrial and orchestral music, has resulted in a catalog of music strong enough to snare a brilliant female singer like Maggie to collaborate with. And boy, did they strike gold with her. Her natural ability to convey the different emotions displayed in each song and her unique style brings a fresh new sound to the gothic pop genre.
Overall, “I Won’t Be Civilised” is a must-listen for any fan of industrial or gothic pop. Velatine has truly made its mark with this album, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for the future.
