¡Simpatico! is an album by Velocity Girl, released in June 1994. It was recorded at Cue Studios in Falls Church, Virginia, from December 27, 1993 to Jan 15, 1994. John Porter was the producer.

Compared to the band's debut album Copacetic, ¡Simpatico! showed more traditional indie pop/ power pop influences, rather than noisy shoegaze tendencies. "Sorry Again" was released as a single (via a CD EP with three non-album tracks, and a 7" with one non-album track). "Hey You, Get Off My Moon" is neither a cover of, nor a variation on, the Rolling Stones' "(Hey You) Get Off Of My Cloud." "What You Left Behind" features rare male lead vocals.
