FREE SHOW w/ Natural Velvet
Natural Velvet is Corynne Ostermann (bass, vocals), Greg Hatem (drums), Spike Arreaga (guitar) and Kim Te (guitar). The post-punk quartet is known in their native Baltimore for a distinct sound that is both aggressive and catchy. Framed by washing guitars, vocals that alternately howl and harmonize, and throbbing drum sounds, Natural Velvet creates music that moves between gazey indie pop and guttural, "wall of sound" noise rock. Aggressive bass lines throughout tie together a dark and foreboding framework, ultimately leaving the listener with haunting melody and hypnotic rhythm. At times confrontational, at times seductive, Ostermann's vocals guide the listener through dark rolling narratives of identity, existence and femininity.
Natural Velvet has played with a variety of national acts, including
Cayetana, Crocodiles, Ex Hex, Guerilla Toss, PC Worship, Thin Lips and many more, and has played festivals such as CMJ, Ladyfest Baltimore, Artscape, and Ratscape. Active in the underground music scene, the band has performed in both commercial and DIY spaces in native Baltimore and beyond. RIYL: Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Birthday Party, Cocteau Twins, Hole, Sonic Youth, Bauhaus, Ride, alien movies, feminist content, villainesses, etc.
