Il video è stato girato in Nuova Zelanda, patria natale della band.

“this was an extraordinarily fun video to make, I think because we got to shoot it back home in New Zealand with our dear friends director Tu Neill and producer Alex Gandar and pulling in favors from heaps of really great people. Art Director Sinclair Lonsdale was working in the art department for ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ in the day, then coming and building these huge tentacle puppets for us at night. All the black goo coming out of everyone’s mouths was made out of the same stuff they put in mince and cheese pies just with black pigment in it. The day we filmed it, I spent the whole night just wandering around giggling to myself. It’s also probably the only time I’ll get to hear the sentence ‘Oil the tentacle, choke the jock. Action.’ Though you never know I guess.” – Finn Andrews

“‘Axolotl’ boasts menacing instrumentation with Run The Jewels’ trademark stomp-and-sludge slowed to a creeping march over which Andrews waxes poetic about the titular amphibian (a type of Mexican salamander colloquially referred to as a “walking fish”), amongst other vaguely-religious and horrific imagery. All the reverential doom and gloom reaches a fever pitch when Andrews proclaims: “Who needs the devil when you’ve got the lord?” But by the time the dismally grand array of guitar solos and trumpets in the outro fade away, the Veils make the two opposing forces sound like one in the same.” – STEREOGUM about AXOLOTL

 

Co-prodotto da El-P (Run The Jewels), Atom Greenspan e Finn Andrews (The Veils), “Total Depravity” arriva a tre anni di distanza dall’acclamato “Nux Vomica” ed è stato registrato tra il Portogallo (Estudios Sa da Bandeira), Londra (Konk Studios), Los Angeles (Casa Lynch) e New York (nello studio di El-P) 

The Veils saranno in Italia per due date per presentare il nuovo ed atteso “Total Depravity

Dopo aver annunciato, la scorsa settimana, il nuovo album in arrivo il 26 agosto, il primo su etichetta Nettwerk/Bertus, la band nota ai più per il brano “Lavinia” è pronta a tornare sulle scene con il primo brano estratto da “Total Depravity”. “Axolotl”, prima traccia del disco, nasce da un incontro casuale tra Finn Andrews, frontman dei The Veils, ed il produttore El-P.

Registrato nell’arco di due anni tra il Portogallo (Estudios Sa da Bandeira), Londra (Konk Studios), Los Angeles (Casa Lynch) e New York (nello studio di El-P),  “Total Depravity” segna il ritorno della band con il produttore Adam “Atom” Greenspan e Nick Launay –  entrambi già al lavoro per l’acclamato “Nux Vomica” del 2006 – ed El-P dei Run The Jewels. Greenspan e Launay hanno già collaborato su numerosi progetti, tra cui Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Band Of Skulls.

Finn Andrews è nel cast dei nuovi episodi della famossissima serie TV di David Lynch, “Twin Peaks”, insieme ad altri musicisti tra cui Eddie Vedder, Trent Reznor, Sharon Van Etten e Sky Ferreira.

Over a period of roughly 2 years an album began to take shape. There is a large cast of characters on this record. L. Ron Hubbard, Axolotls of course, kind natured crocodiles, a psychotic truck driver, The Pope and Ingrid Bergman all get a look in. The songs are all stories of various kinds; some experienced firsthand, others fabricated for my own amusement. It’s the first time I’ve ever written songs using mutilated loops and sounds as a starting point, though some of the songs also began on piano and were messed with later”- Finn Andrews

                  

“…the most moving, unsettling and unexpectedly haunting thing I’ve seen in rock music this year…they really, truly frightened me” – LA Times

“There’s a new skinny giant in town. Intoxicating.” – Uncut (UK) 

“Gloriously sad-eyed rock that preaches to the perverted… The Veils have their own kind of elegant, seductive power.” – The Guardian (UK)
