Album Review
Veto  Crushing DigitsVeto – Crushing Digits

“Built To Fail,” a single from this album, received a fantastic review from myself a few months ago. Was the entire album to do as well? Well, almost, yeah.

For those who haven't heard of Veto, it's Danish indie/electro at its best. (Not that I've heard it at its worst.) But they're a band who, if you like anything of a similar genre recently released, there's a high chance that something in Veto's repetoire will sound very similar. Not in a bad way – they've taken a cornucopia of recently awesomeness and rolled it up into one complete album. So it's a winner really.

“Built To Fail” is still probably favourite, although it faces serious competition from “Digits,” later in the album. But what does it sound like? Well, I'm afraid you're going to have to imagine something, yes that's right, I'm taking you on one of my world famous hypothetical-audio-experiences.

First things first, Death From Above 1979. They get a couple more members, straight from The Klaxons. The drummer is replaced with a drum machine because his beats are too offensive. The vocals sound the same but don't tend to go so nuts. It's quite fast paced, not quite a melodic rap but it's nearly there at times. Dark choruses and verses full of synths and guitars, and then suddenly out of nowhere, the new Klaxons members get involved and sing some fluttery harmonic interlude. If you can imagine that, you should be able to work out whether Veto are the band for you or not.

But I give it two thumbs fresh. Fo sho.
