Bio

‘Tilt’ is Veople’s biggest release yet and has been mixed by Aaron Cupples of Civil Civic in London. Cupples was described as “one of Australia’s most talented young producers” by Audio Technology Magazine and brings credits for prestigious Australian artists including Paul Kelly, The Drones, Kirin J Callinan and Dan Kelly to the table.

Jermyn and Currie approached Cupples, believing his experience with Civil Civic and extensive resumé in contemporary instruments and electronic production to be the perfect glove to Veople’s unique hand of sound.

This sound has been lifted even further with the recent addition of Ben Smith’s dynamic percussion. Jermyn and Currie are cognisant of what working with the best in the Australian music industry can offer their music and are determined to continue fostering these relationships to produce the most polished Veople possible.

Smith — who has recorded and played for Hatchie, PLTS, Shackles, Blind Girls and Empress — has been working with the band in a Currumbin Valley studio to layer live drums over its current electronic production to create a thicker resonance.

This resonance is visually propelled by the cover artwork of ‘Tilt’. Gold Coast photographer, Waylon Palmer (who has produced work for the likes of San Mei and Milk studios) has been working with Veople in capturing the vision and vibe of this and other upcoming releases.

’Tilt’ is just one of four tracks to be released by Veople in 2020. It’s been a busy 18 months for Jermyn and Currie recording together and separately, exchanging ideas and sounds between The Gold Coast and Brisbane. The pair also exchanged recordings from as far away as Hobart while Jermyn undertook a residency to produce a new suite of work for his arts practice — an underlying impetus in Veople’s ongoing culture of experimentation.

The sound of a circuit board melting under the pressure of excess data and that's probably about enough of that analogy to demonstrate how little I understand about computer hardware. This isn't a huge in the sense that some songs are just domineering bangers, but it's got this visceral, swirling ambiance to it that adds so much.

this is like watching a tidal wave roll over the beach wall and just take everything over.
