Underbelly, VEYU’s latest six track record brings new force to the fore, showcasing the characteristic soundscapes and vocal harmonies they are known for, but punctured by cross rhythms of battling bass and charging drums. It stampedes rapidly and paradoxically under euphoric synths and fluid guitar textures. The stirring of these elements together conjures up a push and pull of light and dark twisting and pulling the sonic fabric into flight, adding lift and lightness to the quarrelling lower-end. Lyrically Beesley explores themes of mortality, moral conflict, anger and a sense of sanctuary. A progressive shift from their embryonic debut, VEYU have unfurled and are in bloom.
