L.A.-based band, Velour Academy, recently delivered their anthemic new album, Chisme. Boasting a refreshing 10-track ride full of heartfelt lyricism, soft instrumentals, and hypnotic vocal flows, this is a dynamic release that leaves you wanting more.

Elements of punk, pop rock, indie rock, shoegaze and more are all tied together with spot-on production work and impressive songwriting. The band really shines here by delivering a melodic ride. This doesn't feel like 10 random songs put together. Velour Academy has crafted a set of anthemic tunes that complement each other and keep you engaged from start to finish.

It was way too hard to pick a favorite track, but we ended up adding a few to our Underground Punk and our Underground Indie & Alternative playlists on Spotify. Like we said earlier, once this album is over, all you want to do is hear more. It's a major feat to release an album. especially one as carefully crafted as this, so we're not sure what the band has planned next in terms of new releases.

You can jam along to the entire release below. If you like what you hear, make sure to follow Velour Academy to stay on top of what else they have going on. This is a band that every fan of the genre should have on their radar. Enjoy!
