RESPICE FINEM

Done. Done. Done.
Here's a little track by track run down for you.

THE LETTER
We've talked about this one before. It dances, it sings, it'll bring the house down i think.

THREE SISTERS
It's loud, it's scary, it's also covered in mandolins, mad baritone howls and a blistering B3.

SUN GANGS
Ghostly little number this - written as a kind of unwitting follow-up to Under the Folding Branches.

KILLED BY THE BOOM
A narrative concerning the death of a nameless vagabond with "The Dull Eyes Of A Steer And A Lion's Mane" set beneath a wall of guitars that sound like broken lightbulbs and a hammond being smashed to bits.

SIT DOWN BY THE FIRE
When it all goes wrong sometimes you have no choice but to just watch it all burn to the ground. That's the general idea anyway.
Big and quite, quite beautiful.

LITTLE ELEGY
Not sure if this will make it onto the album or not, it's only a minute long and kinda ties the room together nicely.

THE HOUSE SHE LIVED IN
Anyone that came to see us play last year may recognise this little number. The story of...well, you should decide that for yourselves. She ain't coming home though I don't think.

IT HITS DEEP
As mentioned before, the word 'Libidinous' immediately leaps to mind when attempting to describe this. Music to make love and possibly even build a small fort to.

DESTINED FOR GREAT THINGS
Quite a departure for us this one, it reminds me a little of My Bloody Valentine crossed with Noel Coward. Make of that what you will.

SCARECROW
Slow and very, very bare, probably the most naked my voice has ever sounded. It's sad, boy is it sad.

LARKSPUR
Those who came to our residency at The Enterprise earlier in the year will have had a sneak preview of this one.
Originally an hour long we managed to whittle it down to just under 9 minutes.
It's about writing, about giving yourself over to it completely and just going fucking barmy. Monolithic, a little scary and, we hope, very good fun indeed.

BEGIN AGAIN
What would a Veils record be without the obligatory reflective closer? Sounds like an anchorman realising he left the gas on.

And there it is.
We're off to America now, come say hi if you can.

Mr Andrews this album sounds wonderful. I CANNOT WAIT TO HEAR IT!

VICI said...

Thank you so much for sharing your journey. On one hand it is so exciting( can't wait to hear it!), on the other- it's sad that the story of it all is over....the drama, inside jokes and let's not forget the olympics. Loved the pictures too.
See you in San Francisco!

space_man said...

Golly gosh, can't wait to get my hands on it. See you in Nashville pretty soon, though. Cheers.

Will said...

Looking forward to this a great deal. Please don't make us wait too long to buy it up. Next time you come to the states, don't miss us down in Atlanta. Great work, all.

space_man said...

Those new songs are so, so good. I've had "The Letter" and "Sit Down By The Fire", especially, humming in my head and inevitably pouring out of my mouth constantly since the Nashville show the other night. I do hope you'll be returning one day very soon. Anyway, just really wanted to say thanks, and from what I've heard, this new record is going to turn some heads and blow others clean off...

Darkus said...

Can't wait to listen to the new album.
Really looking forward to some new, beautiful songs.

Too bad the tour is just in America!
Hope to see you and the band, next year in the Netherlands again.

I've only heard Three Sisters as of yet, and I've had it running and tripping over all the facets of my mind since the moment I heard it. It's excited me terribly for the rest of the album. I can't wait.

P.S. These descriptions sound wonderful.

CC said...

When's it out!?!!

louise said...

I just want to hear them all right now, now, now. I'm listenting to some of the live versions of the songs on Youtube, and they are really great.
