Whatever failings the Veils may end up being criticised for, a lack of ambition will not be among them. The Runaway Found is an arrestingly epic and assured debut, unmistakably like the work of a young band who instinctively understand that the only stakes worth playing for are the stars or bust. The Veils aspire, unashamedly, to the company of a peer group including the Verve, Radiohead, Coldplay and Muse: this is big, sweeping, serious music made by men who nigh certainly wear long black overcoats in the middle of summer.

The good news is that the Veils appear to possess the ability to match their aspirations. The best tracks on The Runaway Found--the fragile, Smiths-like opener "The Wild Son" and the faintly Blue Nile-ish "Lavinia"--display a rare knack for melody and arrangement, and singer Finn Andrews has been blessed with an odd but startlingly expressive voice, approximately equal parts Jeff Buckley and Ian McCulloch. --Andrew Mueller

This album is beautiful. Amongst all the chart rubbish around these days,it gives me some hope and reminds me why I love music so much. The RunawayFound is simply full of stunning songs written by a guy who is only 20,much jealousy coming his way!
This album manages to mix up-tempo songs like 'Guiding Light' and 'TheTide That Left and Never Came Back' with slower, more moving songs such as'Talk Down the Girl' or 'The Valleys of New Orleans' without ever feelingcontrived or out of place. Musically, it reminds me of A Northern Soul bythe Verve, but with more blues, if that's possible. The one thing thatreally hits me with this album is his voice. It's as distinctive andheartfelt as Jeff Buckley, but with enough of his own style to berecognised as his own. His ability to relay a different emotion on eachtrack really turned these songs from being good to great.
Simply put, the Runaway Found is the best album I've heard in a long time.If you like your indie music with a classic edge, then you won't bedisappointed!

I bought The Veils’ new album after seeing their video single 'Lavinia'. For the most part, that wasn’t because it was a good song, but because the singer Finn Andrews is Very Pretty and I like pretty men. Just call me the mistress of buying on whims.
Nevertheless, The Runaway Found turned out to be a worthwhile purchase. The first few listens were the hardest – the record takes time to grow on you and it doesn’t help that the broody, churning 'Lavinia' isn’t too representative of the album as a whole. The album version of the track is also substantially different from the single, so that’s something to keep in mind because it certainly came as a bit of a nasty surprise to me. Even now I prefer the video version, but then, that could just be the love of pretty boys talking.
For a debut, the album is surprisingly diverse. 'The Leaver’s Dance' floats along on sparkling arpeggios and tuneful vocals, while 'More Heat than Light' bumps and grinds. Opener 'The Wild Son' is a mellow strum-along that borders on folksy, yet a few tracks onward, 'Vicious Traditions' seems quite happy to follow in the vein of Radiohead’s 'There There' and pick up some pointers on tribal drumming. This makes for difficult listening at the start, as one struggles to fit an identity to this band; but soon enough that ceases to matter as the songs begin to take on personalities of their own.
Vocalist Finn Andrews’ voice has been The Veils’ major drawcard since day one, but at the same time it’s a bit of an acquired taste. Simultaneously gravelly and nasal, it will wear on some listeners’ nerves. Definitely something to try before you buy, but if you do like the voice, chances are that you’ll grow to appreciate the songs, too.

The Veils seem to get regularly compared to Suede and The Verve in the press. I dunno why. They sound nothing like either band, and are far better than both.

This is a beautiful album, filled with glistening melancholy. Particular stand-out tracks are 'Guiding Light' and 'The Tide That Left And Never Came Back'. There is a constant feeling of raging against the dying of the light, hope in the face of adversity. Frontman Finn Andrews has a powerfully distinctive voice, reminiscent of Billy Corgan. At the moment, it seems so few indie-pop frontmen can actually SING (step forward, kaiser chiefs, razorlight et al) so this really blew me away. Money well spent, I say.

Absolutely outstanding debut from a bunch of young men with a huge future. Lead singer and songwriter Finn Andrews shows a maturity beyond his years with a unique voice and superb songs. Get in the ground floor, these guys are going to be huge

The first thing that will strike you listening to this is his unforgettably haunting voice, capturing swirling images and the pictures they paint. The music that plays out to this stunning voice is also just as dreamy and magical. It seems to all just reach out to you. Lyrically they aren't bad either "it's not for our desires but our design that we all fall apart". More thought provoking than anything else.

On the whole, listening to this is like going on a journey and my advice is to let it take to

I was lucky enough to see the veils supporting the delays last week and was just blown away by the performance and the songs. wich obviously meant i had to go straight out and buy the album and i wasn't disappointed! i've had the album on repeat for about 4 days and i'm still not tired of it! catchy singalong tracks like "the tide that left.." and " the wild son" are so uplifting, and then the more deep atmospheric songs like "talk down the girl" or "lavinia" are incredibly involving. there isn't a single track on the album that i don't like, so if you like real music that sounds as though it is being torn right out of the singer's heart i really would advise you to buy this album and support a band with such obvious potential!

I can't even begin to explain how incredible this album is.. Andrews is a treuely exceptional writer and the production is outstanding. The songs in thios album fit together so so beautifully, each crafted so perfectly together. It is one of those albums you can listen to in your bedroom and let each delicate component surround you, it truely will blow you away. Slower songs such as 'Lavinia', 'Nowhere Man' and 'The Valley of New Orleans' portray such a beautiful sense of confusion and this pinch of fear that Andrews sings with such true raw emotion. 'Vicious Traditions' and 'The Leavers Dance' are definately my favorites as they have this unbelieveable climax and really will blow your mind. This album comprises of ten outstanding songs which you would be lucky to find just one of such quality in any album in the charts these days. This album MUST be bought, if its one thing you do today. You will not regret it. Definately one of or perhaps my favorite all time album, they will not disappoint you..
