Veps "Oslo Park" Magenta LP (2023)
Details: Veps "Oslo Park" Magenta LP (2023, Kanine Records). New stock, sealed!
Description: "Ever since they arrived on the Norwegian indie scene at age 17, the Oslo-based four-piece Veps has released a steady stream of jaw-droppingly mature, indie pop gems. Now, as they are all in their final teenage year, Veps announces their debut album Oslo Park for July 21st release on Kanine Records. Continuing to dish out indie pop bangers with a carefree, DIY attitude, Oslo Park is Veps at their most dynamic.Produced by fellow Norwegian Matias Tellez (Girl in Red, Sondre Lerche), Oslo Park is an emotional, fun ride through adolescence. Feisty rocker "His Brother" evokes the spirit of the alternative rock scene of the early 1990s, before the minor key gem "Crawl" breaks your heart with its honest depiction of teenage heartbreak. The gorgeous ballads "Ballerina (Norah)" and "To the Bedwetters" are both, in their unique way, an instant emotional time capsule to the melancholy and vulnerable aspects of being young and searching for your identity.If their EP, Open the Door, was described by the band as a "love letter to our teenage years," this album, raw, emotional, beautiful, and melodic, is more of a goodbye, perhaps."
