Following the release of their nineties tinged track Ecstasy, Oslo’s VEPS have unleashed their raw Girl On TV. The track, which is accompanied by a stunning self-directed video, is the second to be taken from their forthcoming EP Open The Door, out via Kanine Records. VEPS spoke with The Fountain about the track as well as the pleasures of working with Kanine.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Girl On TV?
It’s been great. We appreciate getting such good feedback on something we have been working on for a while. We’ve been given honest opinions, some people adore it and some people like our punchier music better, but it motivates us to keep trying something we haven’t before.
TF: And how would you sum up the track in one sentence?
Girl on TV is a slow-burn, melancholic ballad that describes a lonely girl who feels like an outcast.
TF: What has it been like to work with Kanine Records on this release?
Working with Kanine Records have been great. They’ve loved the song since day one and have been very supportive of our creative decisions.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
Our favourite venue yet has to be Trykkeriet in Trondheim. We’re really looking forward to playing at Blå and Vulkan this year.
