A lot of bands from New Zealand are not really known in this country and also The Veils haven't got beyond the status of an insider tip despite three appealing albums. Whether this will change with "Time Stays, We Go", of all things, is questionable. The quartet now releases on their own label, which guarantees artistic freedom, but sometimes prevents too many people from listening to these wonderful songs. Actually, it is an understatement to limit the band to the genre "Indiepop". There is so much in their songs that you don't even know where to start looking for reference points. Maybe in New York in the late seventies, on television or the Talking Heads? Or in the ethno-influenced songwriter pop of a Paul Simon? Or do you orientate yourself on Vampire Weekends, which combine all this with each other? Be that as it may, The Veils' fourth album is a Kessel Buntes with many pleasant, highly melodious and inspired surprises.
