THE VELDT - Releases New Music Video

USA based legendary shoegazers The Veldt have released a new video for "In A Quiet Room", created by Tokyo-based videographer Toshikazu Kaneiwa. This track comes from their five-track EP The Shocking Fuzz Of Your Electric Fur, released this April via Manchester label Leonard Skully Records.
Video producer Toshikazu Kaneiwa is an indie filmmaker hailing from Tokyo, Japan. A long-time friend of the band, their support for each other's art has been mutually complementary. The Veldt bassist Hayato Nakao composed music for some of Toshikazu's short films, including "Believe" and "Surface", while he would offer his skills in photography and creating videos for the band (then Apollo Heights). "They guided my soul when I was in NYC in 2001-2014", explains Toshikazu and continues: "I was truly inspired when I heard "In A Quiet Room". This sound is so beautiful and sad, and I felt compelled to do the visual work for this song, at the same time, I met k.a.n.a., who is an artist with so much talent - she can dance, act, paint and sing... and I got an idea for the video and I told her my directional plan. She said yes. I really appreciate that she brought a very strong performance into this video."
The Shocking Fuzz Of Your Electric Fur EP marks the band's re-emergence after a notable hiatus, going down in history as one of the most memorable shoegaze comebacks in 2016, as demonstrated by their recent North American and European tours. In early 2017, The Veldt will release new music through SonaBLAST! Records.
The Veldt are identical twins Daniel (guitar, vocals) and Danny Chavis (guitar), Hayato Nakao (bass) and Marvin Levi (drums). Upon signing to Capitol Records in 1989, they recorded a debut album with Cocteau Twins dream-gaze guru Robin Guthrie, which was never released, and then recorded a new once, called Marigolds, with Lincoln Fong (Moose).
