Rosy Finch offers a special Halloween treat: a heavy rock cover version of The Velvet Underground’s »Venus In Furs«!

Rosy Finch have launched a heavy rock version of »Venus In Furs« by experimental rock band The Velvet Underground. It was recorded in 2020 during the studio session for Rosy Finch’s album »Scarlet«.

The magical violin passages were composed and performed by Alicia Nurho, who is a multi-instrumentalist who has collaborated with big artists such as Paradise Lost or Paula Matthews among others.

“This song has always provoked a dark feeling within me. After listening to it again in Rob Zombie’s movie »Lords Of Salem« I knew I had to do something special with. Alicia’s incredible talent was evident when I met her, for this reason, I asked her to record the violins. I had faith that we would understand each other perfectly. She experiences music in a deeply emotional and visceral way, just like me. I was certain that we would have an amazing collaboration and make the song our own. Working with great women is always a magical experience.” explains Mireia Porto (singer, guitarist and Rosy Finch’s leader).
