The Veils


The Veils are the prime example of how I like my Britpop to sound. Their 2004 debut The Runaway Found is the album I always wished Starsailor would make. Enigmatic lead singer Finn Andrews' broken, emotive voice recalls Starsailor's James Walsh, The Strokes' Julian Casablancas, and even Jeff Buckley on some of the softer numbers. Behind him, a curtain of melodic instruments and solid songwriting create a beautiful backdrop for his unique vocal talent.
