The Veils - 'Playing with Time'
Finn Andrews (center) 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. - from an earlier*Sixeyes post
Have you heard Nux Vomica? Or heard of Nux Vomica, *Sixeyes favourite album of 2006 (it was released last year in Europe) by The Veils? Well, you will, or at the very least you should as it will finally and fittingly see a release stateside on Great Society this coming April 24th. The band is led by the slimly bodied and generously talented New Zealander Finn Andrews. A young man whose voice and passion may not be s0 much timeless as they are pure of vision. Andrews looks past the material and focuses on the spirit of life and love which, as we all well know, are timeless.
