The Veldt’s song “Aurora Borealis” says what so many of us want to hear – that someone loves us unconditionally. In my opinion, this song may release chemicals in your brain that also occur when you feel loved. Due to the fact that we need more love in the world, “Aurora Borealis” is the Track of the Day.
Daniel Chavis on their inspiration for ‘Aurora Borealis’: “This song is about my brother’s love for his newborn daughter. Written out of high school and dug out around the time the band had started to get noticed. We had written so many, but it was one of the newest pieces that we had begun experimenting. This would signal our departure from being a band that made people dance to a band that made people confused.
The band includes Danny Chavis – guitar, Daniel Chavis – vocals, guitar, lyrics, Marvin Levi – drums andJoseph Hue Boyle – bass
On November 24, the ‘Illuminated 1989’ album will be released on vinyl, CD, cassette and digitally via Portland-based Little Cloud Records and 5BC Records. The Veldt is currently touring through December., including stops at Levitation Festival (with The Dandy Warhols and The Black Angels) and at Seattle’s KEXP.
