The Veils Artist Snapshot:

Fronted by guitarist and vocalist Finn Andrews, the Veils formed in London in 2001. The Veils' sound can be classified as indie rock, but it draws inspiration primarily from the wistful folk music Andrews immersed himself in as a teenager in New Zealand. THE RUNAWAY FOUND, the group's debut, appeared in 2004 on Rough Trade records. Line-up changes followed, and Andrews recruited a new band (including old friends from New Zealand) to record NUX VOMICA, which arrived in `06 (with an '07 stateside release). SUN GANGS, released in '09, gave evidence of Andrews's evolving singer-songwriter craft, and proved to one of the band's most accomplished recordings.

Product Notes

"It looks an ugly world out there" moans Veils leader Finn Andrews as the New Zealand quintet opens their sophomore album Nux Vomica, and the outlook doesn't get much sunnier as the veil is lifted to reveal eleven theatrical and contradictory tracks. Nux Vomica is the Latin name for a poison tree of South East Asia, source of deadly strychnine, and the Veils seem to have ingested just enough to hurt--behind the alluring melody and lush instrumentation of each song here, there's an unmistakable menace seeping through. The shadow of Echo and the Bunnymen looms large (the title track could have been a "Killing Moon" b-side), and more than a trace of the punctuated rhythms of past New Zealand indie notables the Verlaines in the somber and swaggering "Jesus for the Jugular." The enhanced disc also contains a video for "Advice for Young Mothers to Be", which might cause concern at Child Protective Services if it weren't so amusing. --Ben Heege
