about

Considering "Eyes Wide Open To The Cloudless Sky" as a studio work (2008-2010), "U" is Velva Room's first record as a band. Formed in 2011 by guitarist / multi-instrumentalist Vicco, Her Shamanic Majesty Nathalia Romo de Vivar on drums & front-man Anton Cerda on bass, guitar, piano and vocals, while living together in Guadalajara during a re-conception of the project. The band collaborated with bassist / songwriter Apache O' Raspi for a few months: a period celebrated in their 2012 single "Pasos" (apacheoraspi.bandcamp.com/album/pasos). Soon after, Oby became the band's bassist and keyboardist in the 'Prev-U' Singles ("My Love" & "Kings To Blame"), as well as a period of one year throughout the making of "U". This is the record they finished together.

Track Name: Hyperactive Tony
Hyperactive Tony.

Three o’clock again at the secret night
Where bombs fall, bombs fall, bombs fall into his head.

Tony has keys, Tony knows the tricks of the deep blue sky,
So you better keep an eye on this boy
As he still comes back, as he likes to come around sometimes.

Psychedelic colors in the sky where he’s gone, somewhere far unknown
And if I was to say, this boy looks O.K.

And if you’re close you may see the stars like him
Pull the trigger now and kill your name for a while.
Track Name: Birds
Birds.

Bend your hands
Just surrender to the sky and fly.

Birds are flying at you,
birds are flying at your feet.
Birds are flying at you, birds are flying at you.

Fly.
Track Name: Into The Wild
Into The Wild.

Put back that street feeling man, walk through the door naturally.
Someone will recognize the treasures inside sometime.

Use your memories, don't be hypnotized by the whirl.

Faces are made of mind,
use them, wear em', love em' hate em', try to understand whatever
but what you are, put it aside.

Use your memories don't let fears drag you into the whirl.
Track Name: Waves
Waves.

Distance may appear to keep our stories apart,
but we're in the right place, you'll come like the tide waves, love.
Track Name: Cowboy
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Aqua Bleu
Aqua Bleu.

I'm facing to the facts, I've seen my self 'aqua bleu'.
"I" has turned into "you".
Soon "you" will turn into "him".
And "me", that's someone else, somewhere else...
watching through the eyes of the guy you get to see.
But that's not me.

Now I can see the eternal sunshine in my veins, flow.
( __ ) should learn to let go
I look at him gone, aqua bleu.
Track Name: Sci-Fi
I'm in 'Sci-Fi', 'Sci-Fi' is my lie.
So then we can do it all. All.

But if life's a dream then what is true?
I guess my lies are all I rule
inside the head that's dreaming us
there lies just void. Void.

If water solves the universe,
then ground is just an idea.
Track Name: Secret Prayer
Secret Prayer.

Behold the secret prayer of the Velva Room.
For those who've found the keys and seek the doors.

If the sky turns deeper, don't hold yourself to the ground.
These dreams may show you worlds that prove the dream is you.

Music will lead all the way, fade ourselves in sound. Sound.

If the sky turns deeper, don't hold yourself to the ground.
These dreams may show you worlds that prove the dream is you.

Open up your mind, leave your world behind.
Leave all fear.
Time to let go everything conceived, time to see.
Track Name: Chaos
Chaos.

This world is you, and you wonder why you lose it all?
Chaos is the order of the universe,
but try to wind up sweet love, this darkness only exists underneath.

Focus your time on the whispering morning where there lies a truth that's deeper than your eyes.
If the feeling is forgotten, then logic has no sense; then logic can't be understood.

This world is you, and you wonder why you lose it all?
Cause and effect are still the set.
but try to wind up sweet love, these laws can only be underneath.

Focus your time on the whispering morning where there lies a truth that's deeper than your eyes.
If the feeling is forgotten, then logic has no sense; then logic can't be understood.

And it's alright if you let yourself die again.
Don't you know it's all cool, man, if you lose your mind.
And it's alright if you walk into the dark for a while.
So come on, come on, come on lose control.
