Electro Velvet have cancelled the crowdfunding campaign they were running to help fund the production of a planned EP. Despite having donations pledged from 91 fans, the campaign only managed to reach 23% of its goal.
The campaign launched in June, and asked fans to donate to help fund a four-track EP. Among the rewards for those who would have donated was The Road to Eurovision, a scrapbook of photos and memories of the duo’s Eurovision adventure. A £103 donation would have got the lucky donor one of Electro Velvet’s backstage passes. But as all donations have now been cancelled, no one’s getting anything.
The end of Electro Velvet?
Despite the crowdfunding campaign being cancelled, the cancellation post says the EP will have a “short delay” but, somewhat ominously, it is also described as being “indefinitely delayed”.
So if a crowdfunding campaign isn’t working, there might be another way to raise funds. As Electro Velvet won the Most Likely to Perform on a Cruise Ship category at the Vision Music Awards 2015, perhaps it is time for Alex and Bianca to take to the high seas and earn some money entertaining passengers. Or should they say goodbye to Electro Velvet and go solo?
