About The Veldt

A soul-powered rock band on the heavier end of the shoegaze spectrum, the Veldt are dream pop at their core yet just as known for driving riffs and stirring vocals. Led by Daniel and Danny Chavis, identical twin brothers who proudly cited Echo & the Bunnymen and Public Enemy as inspirations in early interviews, the Veldt were misunderstood from their late-'80s beginning. Established in 1986, the North Carolinians didn't make their recorded debut until six years later with the Marigolds EP, and in 1994 released their first album, Afrodisiac. Active in fits and starts since the mid-'90s, the Veldt evolved into Apollo Heights in the early 2000s. Entropy Is the Mainline to God marked the full-length studio return of the Veldt in 2022. The next year, they seized control of a shelved album produced by Robin Guthrie, referencing its year of recording with the title Illuminated 1989.
