Say You Love Me (Radio Edit)
The fast-paced Say You Love Me rushes through you like a heartbeat and gets you to start tapping your foot at first, and more and more you just want to get up and move to the beat. The clear vocals and synthesizer beats give this electro-rocker a very danceable nature and make SYLM a good debut radio single.
Say You Love Me (Mark Saunders Remix)
This first remix of the song is well done. I’m not a big fan of remixes, but I have to admit that this was very tastefully done and it gives it a really cool disco/dance vibe without taking away the original nature of the song completely. And it fits the danceability of the song quite well. This might do quite well in discos and clubs.
Say You Love Me (Josh Harris Remix)
Compared to the previous remix I think this one is maybe a little more standard. The Mark Saunders Remix was a little more bold and creative, but the Josh Harris Remix is also done quite well. Once again they stayed true to the song and focused on the danceable beat rather than ripping the song apart.
Say You Love Me (Matt Haick Rip n Rokk Remix)
Interesting remix, but out of the 4 it is by far my least favorite. It’s too heavy, too dark, and the vocals are kinda drowning in the effect the remix creates.
Say You Love Me (Twisted Circus Remix)
The Twisted Circus Remix also isn’t my favorite. This one also focuses on the beats which really is the way to go for remixing this song, and it is the remix that stays true to the original song most, but if you do remix it you shouldn’t be afraid to actually do something with the song. This is too similar to the original to be considered a succesful remix.
Trust Fund Girl
Trust Fund Girl is a great tune. It’s very fast-paced, very funny and catchy. I can hear some (almost) bohemian influences in the rhythm and the interaction between the vocals, the synths and the beat in itself is really well done. Even though this isn’t really my favorite genre, Velvet Code is a band I enjoy and Trust Fund Girl is a really cool song. The best one on this EP.
I Never Wanna Feel
The last track, I Never Wanna Feel has dominating synths and effects and this drowns the vocals and other instrumentals unfortunately, but the effect it creates makes for a still infectious song that fits with this bands image.
Velvet Code is a band that shows energy and passion and a creative hybrid of rock and electro. These young guys make something that will give you an itch to get up and move as well as rock out. They were featured on PerezHilton.com and their popularity is growing, and with these infectious tunes they’ll go a long way.
