Codeine Velvet Club release ‘Vanity Kills’‏

Codeine Velvet Club, the sensational new band featuring chief Fratelli Jon Lawler and Glasgow chanteuse Lou Hickey, will re-release the first song they wrote together as a single on April 5th. Entitled “Vanity Kills” it’s a swaying, jazzy, big-band duet, tinged with noir-ish menace and shades of Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood’s waspish 1960s guy-gal duelling

Codeine Velvet Club is a musical collaboration that celebrates Jon and Lou’s shared love of ’60s girl-boy duets, dramatic orchestral pop, and dark post-war Hollywood romanticism. Their acclaimed debut album was released just after Christmas.

Prior to the release of their album in the USCodeine Velvet Club are heading out to play a clutch of gigs at South By Southwest in Austin Texas followed by four shows as special guests of acclaimed Canadian indie rockers Metric. The Metric shows are as follows:
21 Showbox SoDo, Seattle, WA
22 Roseland Theater, Portland, OR
24 Fox Theater, Oakland, CA
26 Hollywood Palladium, LA

Says Lou ( Scotland’s most eligible female, according to a Valentine’s Day poll in The Scotsman): “I can’t wait for the US shows. I’m a big fan of Metric so very excited to be supporting them on tour. I can’t believe we’re going to be performing our song ‘ Hollywood’ at the Hollywood Palladium. And SxSW is going to be insane!

Codeine Velvet Club’s next UK show is at Glasgow’s Queen Margaret Union on 7th May.
