Tia Gostelow pulls at the heartstrings with piano-led ‘Blue Velvet’

Emerging artist Tia Gostelow prepares to pull at the heartstrings with her most vulnerable release to date. The piano version of her recent single Blue Velvet is out now via AntiFragile. Taken from her debut album Thick Skin, Tia talks about the reinvention of the track, “Blue Velvet is the ballad of the album and that’s exactly what I wanted it to be. This was written in my bedroom and I just wanted to write a song that musically there wasn’t a lot going on and the vocals came right through the song. The song is about an intense love and being with someone who has made you feel ways you have never felt before and all the excitement of a new relationship.” Catch Tia live as she embarks on her first European tour this May, including Brighton’s prestigious Great Escape Festival as well as various UK dates:
