Velavox is an alternative music duo from Vancouver, Canada made up of Nicole Gibson (Vocals) and Chris Kelly (Vocals, Synths, Electric Guitar, Programming). Their award-nominated songs have kept them busy throughout the pandemic, being selected in the first round of artists for the RBCXMusic First Up program and masterclass, as well as being selected to be part of the Canadian Music Incubator (2021) and landing 2 showcases at Canadian music week (2021).
Cinematically inspired, Velavox, blends high-wire emotions over a modern alternative sound. The duo’s newest release, ‘Somebody That I Liked,’ (October 2021) delves into singer, Nicole Gibson's, life when she hit a mental health low. ‘Somebody That I Liked’ portrays what it’s like to constantly be in your own head and how it can often feel like a never-ending horror film of sorts. “I remembered a specific moment during this time where I was in the shower and had broken down into tears wondering why my brain was doing this and why I couldn’t go back to happy normal Nicole and be somebody that I liked again.”
‘Somebody That I Liked’ is just the beginning of this new chapter for the duo. They are currently in studio finishing up their EP set to come out fall of 2022. Stay tuned to hear singles from the upcoming EP dropping summer of 2022.
