VEiiLA's Sentimental Craving for Beauty: Echoes CD of the Month for September
VEiiLA are Russian emigres who fled their country after the invasion of Ukraine, seeking some kind of solace in North America, where they have been somewhat nomadic. Before they left, they had already released their debut album and now have the beautifully and darkly rendered follow-up, Sentimental Craving for Beauty. The music is centered on the introspective and often forlorn lyrics of singer and guitarist Vif Nüte and the synthesizers of Bes Eirid. The band has called their sound “music for introverts” but it could as well be music for the depressed, the forlorn and the love-lost. But it is beautiful, which is why it’s the Echoes CD of the Month for September.
Hear it September 5th on the air or at Right Now at Echoes Online!
