Taking its name from a Primal Scream B-side, Washington, D.C.-based quintet, Velocity Girl provided a nice blend of power pop and light shoegaze. The band showed great promise in early 1990s signing with two hefty record labels, Slumberland and Sub Pop. Drawing from the familiar fuzzy footsteps of Lush and popular alt-chick icons, the Breeders, Velocity Girl took the East Coast indie scene by storm; peaking at the infamous, HFStival back at RFK in 1993. The bands self titled EP on Slumberland, featured two stellar tracks, the dream pop driven-dazzler, "Forgotten Favorite" sung by the sexy chanteuse Sarah Shannon and the crunchy bass-blower, "I Don't Care if You Go," a Throwing Muses-inspired treat lead by the band's original singer, Bridget Cross (aka bass player for D.C. band Unrest). On Sub Pop's Copacetic, the band scored a couple well-crafted over the top-pop numbers, including a clever, buzzy classic, "Audrey's Eyes" and a slick and sultry soother, "Crazy Town."
