Produced with an edgy and catchy sound, Mary Velo’s tracks prove that she takes risks and pushes boundaries. Coming from a background of various music genres, her sound is usually unique and deep. Her latest release “Manhattan Project EP” which features a remix by Silent Servant was released in Aug 2013 on Frozen Border.
