I, Donna represents a change in tact for TVR. Here they replace the simplistic 4 chord, anti-frills of The Chupee Life for distorted loops, frantic drums and odd time signatures creating a more post-rock centred sound.

''The Velocity Raptors are a Manchester (UK) based instrumental post rock/math rock band. They’re showing some very promising signs with this demo and I am looking forward to hearing more of their stuff in the near future. Almost synthy sounding guitars, tons of looping and pretty rad drumming. Check it out!'' - The Math Rock Blog.

''I, Donna is the new demo by Manchester post-rock/math-rock band The Velocity Raptors. Imaginative and inspiring, sonically overwhelming demo that showcases pure talent.'' - Against The Odds

''The Velocity Raptors look to subvert the genre with their new two track EP I, Donna. The band mix punk sensibilities with the more melodic progressive sound of post-rock to create an interesting blueprint for the future. Just as the post-punk bands of Manchester in the eighties moved away from punk, The Velocity Raptors are moving away from post-rock to create a style of their own.'' - Music Review Unsigned.

''These guys are the minutemen of fucking post-rock bro. Who would've thunk post-rock could be so succinct, yet still carry the weight of the world in its testicles? The Velocity Raptors thunks it, that's why they're the tits.'' - SYFFAL
