Hot off the heels of their latest release, the Troubles of the Brain EP, the Veils recently dropped the video for “The Stars Came Out Once the Lights Went Out”. Shot in New Zealand, the video plays out like a low-budget, interstellar soap opera. Says Veils leader Finn Andrews, “You know when you have a really lousy day, and you look at the stars, and they’re kind of reassuring and terrifying at the same time, we just thought it was funny to imagine that maybe stars go through the same thing too but in reverse.”
