The Veils (NZ/GB)
Indierockband The Veils return with their highly anticipated 4th album Time Stays, We Go – released on their own Pitch Beast Records imprint during the Motel Mozaique weekend! Time Stays, We Go marks the beginning of a captivating new era for a band already hailed as “The best and most unsettling thing I’ve seen in music this year” by The LA Times and “Quite possibly the most underrated band on the planet” by NME.
Frontman Finn Andrews has had a life consistently surrounded by music. His father Barry Andrews was one of the founding members of new wave pioneers XTC, but it wasn’t until Finn moved to New Zealand with his mother in his teens that he started writing songs of his own. At 17 years old he returned to London and formed The Veils and has been touring and releasing records ever since.
It is with his band’s 4th effort however, that the exceptional promise he has always displayed as a singer/songwriter has come to fruition. Time Stays We Go consists of ten songs culled from a batch of literally hundreds of songs written in the three years since The Veils last full-length release in 2009.
Time Stays, We Go shows The Veils at the very height of their creative powers so far, deftly combining two distinct sides of their personality, or as Andrews calls it, “The Pop & The Snarl”.
