The Veils

The Veils, fronted by Finn Andrews — dressed in tailored suit and beloved hat  — have carved a gothic-tinged niche for their sometimes rawly emotional songs. The son of XTC keyboardist Barry Andrews, Finn grew up in England and New Zealand. After quitting high school in Auckland, he moved to London and formed the band. Within two months record labels were hovering; Andrews eventually signed with Rough Trade (The Smiths, Pulp). The original line-up folded in 2004; The Veils reconfigured for second album Nux Vomica. After the acclaimed Sun Gang (2008) came 2013's Time Stays, We Go and 2016's Total Depravity.
