The Veils: Total Depravity
The haunting voice of Finn Andrews is one that will be with me forever. There are some artists who we form emotional connections to, and The Veils are mine. Thats what caused me to raise my hands in the air triumphantly when I heard a whisper that a new album was in the works, made me pre-order it online, fumbling with my keyboard like a giddy child, and why I've been gulping down each delicious single release like a rich red wine.
Over the years, they've not been known to make music videos, which is why this rather arresting one for "Axolotl" came as quite a surprise to me. It's also a very different sound, very dark and experimental, and was produced by El-P (of Run the Jewels) which scored this video a spot on Pitchfork TV.
This song and two others have been released to stream on Spotify; "Low Lays the Devil" is much more commercially friendly than the above, and "Iodine & Wine" is a slower ballad that's sure to grow on you.
Total Depravity is out on August 26th, and you can pre-order it here.
