Thy Veils‘ works are renowned as multi-sensory spectacles, with iconic combinations of light and music, creating the atmosphere that builds the band’s identity. Their music is sonically sparse and remote yet rich and complex all at once, existing outside the influence of many other kinds of genres. Although it comes as no surprise that every band’s track is a journey, it still holds something delightful in store for the listener if given proper attention.
A cinematic, ethereal glow permeates Thy Veils‘ newest single ‘Upstream.’ A dreamscape full of warm sonic wonder, ‘Upstream‘ captures the emotional excitement and physical surrender of being breathless. The music easily infiltrates the senses, creating a mood that brings the mind into a state of wonder.
On ‘Upstream,’ frontman Daniel Dorobantu says, “Our upcoming album Next Forever is a paved path of inspiration, where every brick that brings us forth in this story is a microcosm of experience, visions, personal stories. And Upstream follows that glue itself, which binds each of these bricks together – inspiration.“
Thy Veils, as a whole, are a unique music band, as there is no other music group that sounds close to them even still, and ‘Upstream’ perfectly strengthens the point. The band’s glistening cascades of vocals and synthesizers sound soothingly like a gently flowing waterfall, the effect being both elusive and captivating.
“What lies at the source of inspiration? To answer such a question, exploration goes beyond one’s limit. Whenever you think you have reached your limit, inspiration is a few steps beyond – at the spring of the cascade, where we transcend the self. It is at that point that the quest feels like a return home.”
The track is not only a treasure trove for true fans but also yet another closer look into Daniel Dorobantu‘s music, one that is as beguiling and enigmatic as the man himself. The band’s lyrical content, sung mainly in English, serves as a vehicle, a voice that, at times, is the boldest instrument on a track.
Together with ‘Upstream,’ Thy Veils‘ music feels like all of the strongest emotions associated with life, yet expressed in a window of time that reveals itself over and over again throughout the journey.
