Today The Veils release the official music video for single “Low Lays The Devil” taken from their new album Total Depravity (out now via Nettwerk Records).
Originally, the single was premiered by both NME and Zane Lowe’s Beats1 show, and flew straight on the prestigious BBC 6 Music’s B List, where it remained for six weeks. The new video, filmed in London, all centers around a flamboyant devil figure. Lead singer Finn: “This video was made by Tu Neill and I guess is a depiction of various forms of depravity we’ve witnessed in the world over the last few years, one scene of which should resonate with New Zealanders in particular. It ends with a dance-off with the Devil thrown in for good measure.”
The album reunites the band with producer Adam ‘Atom’ Greenspan (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Band Of Skulls) and also sees co-production from Run The Jewel’s El-P. Andrews and El-P met up in various locales to collaborate together. Over a two-year period, Total Depravity was recorded at Estúdios Sá da Bandeira in Portugal, Konk Studios in London, Casa Lynch in Los Angeles and El-P’s studio in Upstate New York.
