For those who don’t know VEDA is the ‘goth-pop’ project created by multi-instrumentalist Dominic Antonio Sepúlveda. Based in Birmingham, the young artist has been steadily building a strong reputation whilst gaining support from BBC Introducing among others. New single ‘Sweetheart’ is the latest offering and is a nod towards a larger body of work in the near future to be supported with a line of tour dates.
Touching on the sad boy sounds of the 80s, VEDA creates something dreamy and luscious with ‘Sweetheart’, the hazy guitars paint a nostalgic scene reminiscent of The Smiths or The Cure. Distant vocals plays further into this notion and without being another copycat artist VEDA bring his own flair to the table. Watch out for this as there is more to come.
