Finn Andrews is the frontman for The Veils. Andrews is releasing his debut solo album, One Piece at a Time, in 2019 (exact date TBA) via Nettwerk. Previously he shared its first single, “Love, What Can Do?” Now he has shared another song from it, “A Shot Through the Heart (Then Down In Flames).” Listen below.

Andrews had this to say about his solo album in a press release: “It’s a lot more autobiographical than I intended. The last Veils records had a lot of writing from other perspectives but this one has a lot less of that and a lot more from… well, from me I guess. It’s always been personal, so it’s a different way of getting at the same thing, I suppose. Honestly I don’t exactly know why it’s different this time, or why these songs have a different feeling, but they do.”

Andrews is pretty much the sole permanent member of the band, stretching back to their 2004 debut album The Runway Found, although The Veils have featured various other members over the years. Andrews was born in London, but spent much of his childhood in New Zealand and has relocated there after many years in the UK. His father, Barry Andrews, is also a musician and is a member of Shriekback, was a member of XTC, and has also played with David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and others.

In 2016 The Veils released their latest album, Total Depravity, via Nettwerk. The album was co-produced by El-P (aka Jaime Meline) of hip-hop duo Run the Jewels, along with Atom Greenspan (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and Andrews. David Lynch is a fan of the band and Andrews appeared in Showtime’s new Twin Peaks series last year.
