There is a timeless quality to The Veils music. A quality enhanced , no doubt, by producer Bernard Butler (formerly of Suede) and the songs arrangements - but, a quality achieved by the songs lyrics. The best songs on 'The Runaway Found' are those that concern relationships, good and bad - 200 years ago and 200 years from now, relationships will be the same - they are timeless.
Finn Andrews is the group's singer and songwriter and he has a distinctive voice - kind of a soft rasp - but, rasp isn't right - more of a rustling, especially on the slower tracks - like barefeet brushing through long grass. And when he uses it on tracks like 'Lavinia' it is to great effect.
