Vero Release Debut Album “Unsoothing Interior”
On their debut album, Unsoothing Interior, Vero reflect the nature of life itself. Their songs prioritise feeling over perfectionism, what feels, or sounds, best, creating a record that tumbles through its contents with a sense of unpredictability, excitement, and curiosity. “We don’t want to be super musicians; we want to write the best fucking songs and just have the best energy and show people that we’re having fun,” explains singer and bassist Julia Boman.
Fun has always been at the heart of Vero‘s story, which began when guitarist Clara Gyökeres walked up to Boman and asked if she wanted to start a club night together. With the bassist’s school friend Amanda Eddestål, also now on guitar, they started DJing as a trio before eventually deciding it would be more enjoyable to play their own music rather than other artists’ and formed the band. “We DJed old disco music, but all three of us were going to rock concerts and loved rock music,” Boman says. “We were like, ‘We’ve all made music in some way before so we should start playing together instead’.”
The album’s title reflects that unpolished sound and the tumultuous nature of navigating your twenties and the record is a document of the three musicians’ own experiences, injected with a natural urgency that comes from both the reality in the songs and writing and recording them in a studio paid for by the hour. For its listeners, it acts less as a roadmap through the turbulence and more as a confidante to share the highs and lows, drama and desire with, encompassing everything from sex, friendship and figuring out exactly who you are.
Unsoothing Interior can be streamed and purchased via PNKSLM Records
