No Middle Ground is Velvet Sand’s full length album debut. After releasing their debut E.P. ‘The Carcajou’ in mid 2017 to a cold reception the boys set out to create a full body of work that not only encompasses the many styles and vibes they utilise, but also a project that they could genuinely be proud of.
Ranging from all out rapid fire flows with dark and eerie beats to boom-bap inspired tracks about family (and more) - every track is conceptually solid with great songwriting. As not to be branded as an "Australian Hip-Hop project", NMG touches the sounds of Modern Trap, Boom Bap, Drill, Grime and R&B to create a well balanced project that carries itself seamlessly from style to style with no interruption.
2018 saw the release of 3 singles and a music video from the album; LP titled track ‘No Middle Ground’, ‘Like Me’ and ‘Show Me A Sign’ - all garnering a great response on Spotify with Like Me placed in the Spotify editorial playlist ‘All Aussie Hip-Hop’ and all 3 picked up by Tech N9ne’s label Strange Music for their curated playlists.
