Veil Veil Vanish Into a New Mausoleum

Veil Veil Vanish’s debut EP is a salient discharge of swirling, kinetic atmospheres punctured by deep bass lines and urgent, brusque guitars that brush against soft backdrops, threatening to tear them all down. Steeped in the darker corners of ’80s post-punk adherents, Veil Veil Vanish build brilliantly fevered songs that seduce with their lush, damaged anti-pop fixations. Anyone aching for Disintegration- or Faith-era Cure will find their appetite satiated with Into a New Mausoleum, which is as ethereal as it is in your face, but without ever going too far in one direction. From opening track "What Will you Say Tonight” to the driving allure of "Shadows Dripping Like Honey,” it quickly becomes apparent that Veil Veil Vanish are one of those bands that leave such a deep impression that it doesn’t take long to know that this is where you want to be.
