The Veldt is identical twins Daniel Chavis (vocals, guitar) and Danny Chavis (guitar), along with Hayato Nakao (bass), Marvin Levi (drums) and Alex Cox (guitar). Together they produce a heady and sensual blend of shoegaze and progressive soul, dreamy soundscapes and infectious grooves.
The Veldt will be touring in support of their latest EP ‘Thanks to the Moth and Areanna Rose’ and also preview some new material. Their latest video ‘Black and Blue’ features footage by Yuko Sueta, the late wife of Veldt guitarist Danny Chavis. More recently, the band filmed a live Oak City Session 2019 with the City of Raleigh.
The new EP features contributions from two 4AD music legends of the dreampop and shoegaze world (a remix by A.R.Kane and production by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins). The Bandcamp version of the EP also features two legends of the trip-hop and rap/trap world (‘Dakini’was remixed by Jason Furlow, a.k.a. Nosaj of New Kingdom and Carlos Bess of the Wutang production team).
Seefeel’s legacy dates back to the early 90s and have undoubtedly earned their legendary status. Conceived by Mark Clifford and Sarah Peacock, they immediately amalgamated electronics in groundbreaking ways, deeply fusing these sounds with guitar, drums and bass into urgent melodic waves. Early releases ‘Quique’ and ‘Succour’ oscillated between hopefulness, introspection and downright menace. Seefeel is touring to mark just over 25 years elapsing since the release of their seminal debut album ‘Quique’.
