Why You Should Listen To The Veils: You should listen to Nux Vomica for many reasons. However, one song that you must check out is "Nux Vomica." It is a ballad that is characterized by a musical buildup. The guitar rages on in intensity as the song progresses. The Veils are comparable to a number of other independent acts from the UK including Editors and the Libertines. The Veils can even sound Radiohead-esque as evidenced in one of their best songs "Under the Folding Branches."
