Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles are excited to announce the VEVO world-premiere of their music video for “Undone” today. The video was directed by Chiara Clemente, a New York City filmmaker whose experience includes directing the documentaries Beginnings and Our City Dreams, and her films have been screened at more than 30 theaters worldwide and broadcast on the Sundance Channel. Watch the music video at the link below.
“Undone” is one of highlights from the band’s newest album, HEAT, which was released on May 29th. HEAT is the band’s fourth full-length release and their first since 2010’s Good of That. The album was recorded at Vacation Island Recording Studios in Brooklyn with acclaimed producer/engineer Matt Boynton (MGMT, Beirut, Bat for Lashes). HEAT spotlights the band’s eclectic musical style, creating a brilliant wash of organic psych-folk from a blend of interweaving ukeleles, accordion, electric guitar, upright bass, cello, drums and (of course) Lucy Michelle’s uniquely recognizable vocals.
The band are currently getting ready to hit the road, where they will be performing songs from HEAT and their previous albums at numerous shows this Fall. Following the opening night Oct 12 show in Ames, IA, the band joins forces with He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister beginning on Oct 16 in St. Louis, before heading to the East coast for shows in New York City on Oct 24, concluding with a show Oct 27 in Washington DC. The band will then play a handful of Midwest dates supporting Trampled by Turtles. For full itinerary, please see below.
