“…the most moving, unsettling and unexpectedly haunting thing I’ve seen in rock music this year” – LA Times
“Andrews has a dryness to his delivery, taking what could be poignant and churning it around in his mouth until it comes out wry or arch. It sounds akin to many of rock’s greatest voices, but ultimately, because his tongue is often planted far inside his cheek, the final effect is unique” – Pitchfork
“forceful hooks and aggressive tempos alternated with moments of regret and recrimination. The Veils delivered power chords with furious economy. The Veils are a reminder that a set that clears your head can be exactly what’s needed.” – Interview Magazine
“The recipe for the kind of rock that stitches itself to your brain and stays put” – Stereogum
“deep, dark and absolutely rocking…get on with it already” – Black Book
