Currently Listening To: The Veils - Bloom

In case they may have slipped under your radar, we're sharing a bit of love for this band with you all. The Veils are an indie pop four-piece from New Zealand and England. They've already got some great press from the NME, Guardian and Drowned In Sound, and seem intent on world domination with the release of their  seven song EP today.

Troubles of the Brain taps into a major Arcade Fire/Americana/Springsteen-esque sound. Although it isn't the sort we normally post about, there's an element of charm here that we couldn't ignore. Most likely it stems from lead singer Finn Andrews' musical upbringing as son of Barry Andrews (XTC/Shriekback). Stream the entire EP on Soundcloud (shout to Rock Steady Music) and buy it as either a download or CD to be a total do-gooder.

"Bloom" is my Swell Tune today:
It's like a Joy Division LP at 45rpm.
