Velvet Mist is a Belgian New Wave / Goth Rock band that emerged late 2020 from a collective quest by Jonathan Verstrepen and Anton Mergaerts to find a melancholic sound.

Inspired by the dark sound from the 80s, notably by legendary groups like ‘Sisters of Mercy’, ‘The Cure’ and ‘The Cult’ they achieve a dark but danceable atmosphere with a contemporary and fresh approach.

Their first EP ‘Visitation’ takes you along on a Goth Rock/New Wave vibe with their cold synth melodies rhythmic drums and deep vocals. Which results in brutally effective melancholy.

Lyrically inspired by dark thoughts and tender touches. Twists of mind, feelings and moments we all experience from time to time, yet so few dare to expose them for the world to see.”

For the fans of: The Cure, Sisters Of Mercy, 2 Belgen, OMD,…
