Hailing from gauzier side of San Francisco’s very distinctive music scene, Metropolis recording artists VEIL VEIL VANISH are set to release their debut album CHANGE IN THE NEON LIGHT on February 23, 2010.
“This album represents a year’s worth of constant work and the fleshing out of our sound,” explains vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Keven Tecon. “We’ve created something huge and new, but it’s also created us.”
As an outlet from their jobs as a graphic designer, organic fruit and juice sales, and behavioral therapists working with autistic children, the five band members pull together their influences from the bands of their youth as well as their foggy hometown of San Francisco where a subculture of like minded bands has been bubbling just under the surface for sometime now. Veil Veil Vanish packs their sound with shimmering guitars, throbbing basslines and emotion-drenched vocals whose appeal broadens its scope with their new album. “This is not just another post-punk or shoegaze album,” Keven asserts. “It’s pushing those genre’s further. Even into the relm of pop music. It’s a concept album, yet each song can work on its own.”
