Artist of the Day: Veils

About a month ago I was lucky enough to stumble upon UK natives, Veils. The group is a four piece hardcore band fronted by a female whose performance is convincing and brings a new dimension to the group. After being sucked in by the aesthetically pleasing album art of their debut EP, I was no less satisfied with the substance of the release. Clarity starts off with a Brand New reminiscent dark and moody progression that sets the tone for the duration of the release, featuring impressive instrumentation and equally impressive production for such a small group. Driving yet sludgy at times, the sound tips its hat to larger acts in the scene such as Pianos Become the Teeth or Touché Amoré while still maintaining a definitive identity. After signing to Tangled Talk Records, I think we can expect big things from these energetic newcomers.

Check them out on their Bandcamp or Facebook page.
