The Rough and The Velvet is  a musical project born in 2005.
 It started with the album Synthetic Alchemy, a sort of exercise with sound and plasticity and evolved with the second piece of work Sounds. In Life And Death Of These Derelict Souls, which originates from a series of lyrics written many years ago as the musical version of a poetry collection bearing the same title.
Although the universe of the songwriter is populated by many genres and by the love for many different bands,  the songs do not refer to anyone in particular. The style could be a sort of alternative experimental pop. The playlist below includes songs from both albums and will give you a taste of the sound. You can find TRTV music on iTunes, Amazon, CDbaby; see the store page for the main links.
