Finn Andrews -

Since signing a record deal at the tender age of 16, Finn Andrews and his band The Veils have released 5 albums together, appeared in David Lynch's reboot of Twin Peaks, as well as on soundtracks by luminary film directors Tim Burton and Paolo Sorrentino, and was also recently been commissioned by the Belgian government to write a 20-minute orchestral piece to commemorate the antipodean dead of World War I.

It was while writing 2016’s Total Depravity that the New Zealand-raised musician realized a different streak was beginning to emerge. Fueled by the end of a relationship, Andrews took some time out from London and from The Veils, and returned to New Zealand to begin work on his first solo album, One Piece At A Time.

Andrews galvanized a small group of musicians in Auckland and quickly got to work deciphering the pages. The sheer quantity of material was daunting at first, and one of the new outfit’s first tasks was to spend a few weeks locked away in a room, playing each song through to get a sense of how they felt.

The resulting album is one of Andrews’ most profound and intimate pieces of work. Recorded entirely live at The Lab in Auckland, and engineered and co-produced by Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins), the band includes Andrews on vocals, piano, and guitar; Cass Basil on electric and upright bass; Alex Freer on drums; Healy on guitar; Reb Fountain and Nina Siegler on backing vocals; with sprawling string arrangements by Victoria Kelly.

Reb Fountain -

If miles were money, Reb Fountain’d be rich as all get out, if truth was something the radio was interested in she’d be number one for all time, if they melted guts and mettle and turned it to steel and then shaped it into medals Reb’d need two chests.

Sometimes its a wonder she can fit all of her heart into one, but BOOM there it goes, gig after gig, song after song, she’s up there one acoustic guitar and THAT voice (you know the one, born of fire and river run, mountain strong and feather soft) and just that, only that, but goddamn that heart…it kicks like a backbeat, it’s Moe Tucker steady and roars like John Bonhams kick.

Yet it’s a heart, not a drum but you hear it like such.
